Welcome to my kitchen!
I'm Christina, a professional chef, cookbook author, recipe developer, and journalist based in Los Angeles, California. I love tantalizing palates throughout the city with traditional and modern Greek-themed pop-up dining experiences, which have been featured in Food & Wine magazine among other media outlets.
My dinners are social experiences. We kick them off over an aperitif and nibbles in my open kitchen and then sit down on my patio under the glittering lights of Hollywood to enjoy the rest of the dinner. I can normally accommodate vegetarian diets with notice.
I'm Greek-American with family roots from the islands of Crete and Milos — where some of the best food in the entire country comes from. I love exploring Greece and brining back my culinary discoveries to share with you at these unique dining events. Hope to EatWith you at a future event!

I've always loved Greek food so was super excited to see this Greek themed online cooking experience on Eatwith! Host Christina taught us how to make one of her family signature recipes which was amazing! A fun, interactive cooking class for Greek food lovers!
Chef Christina made a really yummy meal, and served up sweet, sincere stories to go along with each course. She and her husband were warm and entertaining hosts who even surprised us with a little live opera performance by a friend. You could feel her genuine joy in cooking and entertaining.
Christina is a WONDERFUL chef and created a lovely evening for us and for the important and pressing cause of homelessness. She welcomed my guest and I enthusiastically into her home, eager to pour us each a Greek cocktail with flavors of autumn, apple cider, and cinnamon. She had an exquisite spread of crudités with various Greek dips, cheeses, olives, and her scrumptious spanakopita. Dinner was exquisite and consisted of tender lamb slow cooked in a traditional clay pot from the Greek island of Sifnos with a side medley of perfectly roasted root vegetables along with traditional Greek wines. Dessert, a honey and cheese pie topped with thyme, honey from Greece, pomegranates and pistachios was absolutely delicious, so much in fact that I had to have seconds! The atmosphere she created outdoors was cozy and transportive...I felt like I was back in Greece, if only for a moment.
The food was absolutely delicious, the hospitality spot on, a lovely experience over all!
