Your host Martina
A pastry chef and food lover, Martina grew up in Germany and loves to share her German traditions and recipes with other food lovers. The holiday season is Martina's favorite time of the year, so she would like to share her favorite recipes with you and bake Weihnachtsplaetzchen, traditional German cookies with you. Martina has worked in food and hospitality for over three decades and received a hospitality and culinary degree in Germany. She has since worked in hotels around the world as an event planner. Martina is currently writing a cook and travel book. She wants to be a Traveling Spoon host because she loves learning about different cuisines, cultures and traditions and is delighted to share her own recipes she grew up with, cook and bake with others, and teach and share German traditions.
