On the Chefs Without Restaurants podcast this week I have chef Christina Pirello of Christina Cooks. After already losing her mother to cancer, Christina was diagnosed with terminal leukemia in her mid-20’s. Not wanting to undergo traditional treatment for cancer, she ultimately changed her diet and lifestyle, and her cancer went into remission. She’s been cancer-free for more than 35 years now.

Christina wanted to share what she’d learned about food and cooking, and Christina Cooks was born. She started a cooking show on PBS (and won an Emmy in her first season), and has published eight cookbooks. While Christina maintains a vegan diet, she isn’t preachy about it.

We talked about her early days working in a professional kitchen, her journey to wellness, and how she built and grew the Christina Cooks brand.

Research Chef Shola Olunyolo of Studio Kitchen

You can listen to the show on BuzzsproutITunesSpotifyTuneInStitcherAmazon MusicPandora and I Heart Radio.

This week I speak with Philadelphia  chef Shola Olunyloyo. Shola has carved out a creative niche in modern cooking instruction as a consulting chef. The Studiokitchen was created as a research and idea space to support his manufacturer partner and client projects. He uses contemporary cooking techniques to create increased value and high impact flavor. His Studiokitchen has exposed guests and clients to an entirely unique approach to dining by immersive exploration of various culinary concepts, global ingredients, and useful modern cooking technology. 

Shola just finished a month long chef-in-residence program at the Stone Barnes Center in New York with chef Dan Barber. While there, he prepared his native Nigerian cuisine, using the bounty of the Hudson Valley. We talk about this experience, as well as staging, cultural appropriation and classical cooking techniques.
