cooking has been my life. ( We couldn't afford the actual

oven but that's another story)

As the host of Food Network’s extraordinarily successful daily flagship series, Christine Cushing Live, her reality show, Fearless in the Kitchen, on the Oprah Winfrey Network, Christine has been showing Canada how to cook for  20 years. She is just wrapping  season three of her exciting series - Confucius Was a Foodie - airing on Nat. Geo in Asia.   Christine and her crew travelled to  8 countries to discover the history, evolution and incredible flavours of the vast Chinese cuisine.  As the resident chef on the highest rated talk show in Canada, the Marilyn Denis Show, Christine’s life revolves entirely around food.

Born in Athens, Greece, Christine immigrated to Canada with her family at the age of one. After graduating with honours from George Brown College, Christine went on to graduate at the top of her class at the famed Paris École de Cuisine La Varenne. 

She was the spokesperson for Cook for the Cure Breast Cancer campaign and a superhero for the Starbright foundation for Sick Kids hospital and currently a judge for the Gold Medal Plate annual fundraiser for the Olympic committee as well as a committed advocate of the Children's Breakfast Clubs . She has published three best-selling cookbooks, Dish it OutFearless in the Kitchen, and her third called Pure Food won a Gourmand world cookbook award in Spain (Whitecap2007). Her line of artisan food products is available across Canada in select stores. 

My culinary philosophy is simple: Start with the best ingredients, have fun and share everything you know about food.

Walking the cobblestone paths of Montmartre Paris, shooting Confucius was a Foodie takes me back to the time I spent here at culinary school. Ooh la la!

Mini Butter Tarts

This is a Canadian classic recipe re-imagined with maple syrup and dried blueberries and shrunk to a delicious mouth-sized morsel. For a quick cheat, use a pre-made pastry shell.

Walking through this shaded path in Montenegro, all I can smell is the incredibly fragrant aroma of pine and the fresh sea air.
