Christina Pirello – Americas Healthy Cooking Teacher
Christina Pirello: A Woman of Substance
A bright shining star, a heart the size of goliath, a ball of fun, an incredible force of energy and a wonderful teacher, that is our Christina.
In 1983, Christina, Emmy Award-winning host of the national public television series “Christina Cooks”, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and fought her way back to robust good health through her zest for life and an alternative nutritional approach.
Having earned a Masters in nutrition, Christina set out on a mission to educate and inform about the impending and potentially catastrophic health crises facing our culture today. Christina’s mission has led her to teach and lecture in a variety of settings from natural food stores to corporate boardrooms; from inner-city high schools, elementary schools, and universities to hospitals, wellness and senior centres.
Christina’s national public television series “Christina Cooks” was launched in 1997. Today, this motivational, educational and increasingly popular programme airs in the USA on more than 250 public television stations.
Christina has also founded The Christina Pirello School of Natural Cooking and Integrative Health Studies where she offers demonstration classes and three-day intensive study programs, as well as four and six month cooking and integrative health programmes.
An accomplished author, Christina has written eight books, including the bestselling Cooking The Whole Foods Way, named healthiest cookbook of the past decade by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Just a few of the reasons why Bill and I love her… She rocks!
