…Airs on TV12, Saturdays at 2 pm…

The sixth season of CHRISTINA COOKS, hosted by renowned whole foods chef and Emmy Award-winner Christina Pirello, is now airing on TV12 on Saturdays at 2:00 pm. The popular cooking program is broadcast on more than 125 public television stations nationally, and in over 60 countries internationally.

New this season, Christina is out of the studio and in her own kitchen, sharing her unique philosophy and style of cooking in an intimate setting. In addition to her educational cooking segments, Christina will conduct field pieces focused on healthy cooking and living, taking her program to such Philadelphia landmarks as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Academy of Natural Sciences, Reading Terminal Market, South Street, The Franklin Institute and the Italian Market.

Christina will explore a number of healthy-cooking topics this season including: how to serve healthy family meals in a fast-paced world; cooking outdoors without compromise to health or fun; how to incorporate healthy food choices into your diet; and how to achieve and maintain the ideal weight for any lifestyle.

The new season will also feature a number of expert guests who will provide valuable information on health topics, including menopause, men’s health and non-medicinal treatments for cancer.

WHYY is the national presenting station for CHRISTINA COOKS, which is distributed by American Public Television.

Christina is author of three top-selling books, "Glow," "Cooking The Whole Foods Way" and "Cook Your Way to the Life You Want."
