Your host Christina
A wealth of Greek culinary knowledge, Christina grew up in a farming family in a small village in western Greece, where she still gets her local eggs, cheese, organic extra virgin olive oil, dried herbs, and hand-collected sea salts. Christina is passionate about baking traditional phyllo pies made with hand-made dough, a technique she first learned from her grandmother. After attending culinary school, Christina perfected the phyllo technique by working in a local bakery where she expertly created a wide variety of phyllo pies from scratch. Christina might seem a bit serious at first, but once you get on the topic of Greek cuisine her friendly personality will shine through. Christina joined Traveling Spoon with the mission to share her knowledge of Greece’s phyllo traditions with as many people as possible in order to help preserve these age-old cooking methods.

"Christina was a wonderful host and teacher! We learned a lot about Greek cooking and daily life in Athens, and we made some delicious dishes under Christina’s watchful eyes. Thank you for this opportunity to “visit” Greece during the pandemic."

"We had a great time on our class! Christina guides you pretty well through the recipe and also gives some interesting information about Greece, funny things about the dishes we're making, which is something I really like in these experiences. She has a great energy, was very kind to our daughter who was also cooking with us. Would definitely do it again!"
