America’s Healthy
Cooking Teacher

PBS Chef

Your favorite PBS chef is here to bring cooking shows back to their roots – teaching you how to cook delicious, wholesome meals for your family! Check your local listings every week and tune in to watch celebrity chef Christina Pirello show you how to make healthy dishes using organic and all-natural ingredients. If you're wondering why Christina cooks, it's because she's witnessed the power of a healthy, whole foods diet firsthand.

America's favorite healthy cooking teacher was diagnosed with terminal leukemia when she was only 26 years old. When she was told she didn't have much time left, she took her health into her own hands, learning everything she could about her food and how it affects the body. She was cancer-free within fourteen months! Now she's a PBS chef who loves to show live audiences everything she's learned. Her acclaimed show, called Christina, avoids the recent trend of competition and cooking the same dishes over and over. In a classroom format, real cooking students watch the celebrity chef as she prepares healthy meals with Italian flair and answers their questions. You'll feel like you're right there in the room as you learn where your food comes from and how to take control of your health and your carbon footprint through healthy cooking. There's no other PBS chef like Christina!

She'll show you how to create full meals like the Stir-Fried Corn and Tempeh, from appetizers to desserts, by utilizing unprocessed ingredient for the best possible version of your favorite dishes. You can find PBS chef cooking shows like Christina's on your local public television network and The Create Network every week. Taking charge of your own food consumption is empowering and will give you a whole new outlook on life. You don't have to be a master chef to create a great meal… you just need to have heart!
