Cristina in the kitchen is all about easy, affordable recipes and the culture, science and history behind the food we eat.
All the recipes are created by Cristina, that’s me. I do everything that has to do with this website and its social media.
All the recipes are either my creations or my interpretations of traditional recipes. I always try to offer alternatives and ideas, so feel free to suggest your own in the comments. Just don’t say that your grandma/uncle/neighbour does something in a different way, because these recipes are my way of doing them. I go as much as (without becoming Wikipedia) I can into the history and culture behind traditional dishes, but I could never make them the way people who belong to that culture would, and I would never pretend to.
About the website
Cristina in the Kitchen is updated 6 days a week, unless something weird happens! I run fortnightly (that’s 2 weeks for those not in the UK) topics, Monday to Saturday new posts go up.
Sometimes something random could be posted on Sunday.
As of the beginning of 2019 I am 33 and I live in Devon, England. I love food, but I don’t really consider myself a foodie. I enjoy learning about food, its culture and the science behind it. Of course, I love cooking and eating too!
I was born in Argentina, but have spent a third of my life there, another third in Spain and the last third in the UK, with some short stints in Chile and Norway. I also married a Ghanaian man 8 years ago.
I am a fully qualified primary school teacher specialised in modern foreign languages. However, after some years working in restaurants in front-of-house and manage roles I left the comfy waitress shows for a comfy desk chair and became a social media manager and content creator.
I work with companies and individuals to help them with their social media presence, but mostly I write for their blogs and some magazines too. Because that’s my job, I try to keep this website and its social media as far as possible from ‘professional’ as I can, while still looking nice. The main place where my laid-back attitude shows is with the photos, You won’t see staged photos at all. At the end of the day I am incredibly sick of them and I just want to cook something nice and eat it!
