Chef Krystina is a Greek-American, born in Sacramento, CA and currently resides in the foothills of Northern California.
Chef Krystina has a rich ancestry in Greek culture in that her father is 100% Greek, having been born in Mani, Greece. While she enjoys the history of both her parents through American
and Greek cultures, her heart has always longed for traditions passed down through her father and paternal grandmother. Growing up in a household of Greek customs, she learned to cook and prepare cultural dishes such as Spanakopita, Lemon Patates, Baklava, and Greek bread.
Krystina went on to work and live part-time in Greece as an adult and is a graduate of the Cordon Bleu Academy here in the USA. Moreover, Chef Krystina was raised on a lavender farm
in Northern California, as her family grew and produced an array of lavender products and still do to this day.
