Christine Cushing

Born in Athens, Greece, Christine immigrated to Canada with her family at the age of one. While growing up in Toronto, her easy-bake oven soon became her most prized possession. At age nine, she graduated to a real stove and began cooking alongside her father – an accomplished home chef – who taught her how to be fearless in the kitchen.

After completing the Food and Beverage Management Program at George Brown College, Christine went on to graduate at the top of her class at the Paris based École de Cuisine La Varenne. That year forever changed her philosophy of food and made her drive even harder to follow a career in the culinary arts. She has worked in such renowned kitchens as Toronto’s The Four Seasons Hotel, King Ranch Health Spa and Scaramouche Restaurant. Christine also successfully launched her own business, focusing on catering, recipe development and food styling. Her love of teaching spun off a cooking school called “Cooking Chez Toi”, where she would conduct teaching cooking parties in people’s homes.

Christine Cushing is one of the trailblazers of Food Network in Canada with an eight-year stint as a TV chef. The only chef in Canada to host a live-to-air program, she was the dynamic host of Christine Cushing Live – the flagship show – for 4 seasons. She has hosted and cooked along side many of the world’s top chefs – from Tom Colicchio and Anthony Bourdain, to Eric Ripert, Jamie Oliver and Martin Yan.

She has written two best selling cookbooks and her third, called “Pure Food” will launch the fall of 2007.

The birth of her product line, “Pure”, by Christine Cushing is a culmination of many years of tasting, researching and determination. The line features a spectacular, award winning extra virgin olive oil from the sunny island of Crete and a series of three delicious, all natural sauces (Grand Prix finalist) made from California tomatoes from Christine’s personal recipe in small batches.

Eat pure. Feel Pure.
