COOKS RETURNS FOR AN EIGHTH SEASON
season has Mediterranean flair and simple (yet exciting!)
Pirello, renowned whole foods chef, will host the
eighth season of the Emmy Award-winning series,
From a brand-new
kitchen, Christina introduces viewers to a style
of healthy cooking that is decidedly Mediterranean
and relies on techniques and simple ingredients
that can be found at the average supermarket. But
this season, Christina takes it a step further --
with exciting recipes, the like of which viewers
have never seen!
to follow the pack and be 'just another cooking
show,' Christina has taken an innovative approach
to CHRISTINA COOKS once again. In this series, Christina
breaks the ingredients in foods down even further,
using everything form science to ancient Asian wisdom
to explain the what, where and why of antioxidants,
phytochemicals, enxymes, probiotics and other nutrients
essential to health. Topics include: eating soy
for women's health; how antioxidants can slow the
aging process; the importance of folic acid for
healthy red blood; and understanding what foods
to eat for optimal probiotics (or food digestion).
season of CHRISTINA COOKS will also feature a number
of entertaining cooking themes, such as eating to
feel happy; "The Freak Show," which shows
you how to eat coffee, chocolate and honey, without
feeling guilty; and "Aphrodisiacs," a
show about the rights foods to bring out romance.
last season, Christina is joined in the kitchen
by singer/songwriter Jon Michaels, who plays his
inspiring songs while she cooks.
as "the woman who put the fun back into healthy
cooking," Christina gives whole foods cooking
classes, seminars, workshops, catering and lectures
nationwide. She became interested in healthy cooking
after being diagnosed with terminal leukemia more
than 20 years ago. The leukemia disappeared within
a year and a half, and whole foods cooking has been
her passion ever since.
