Hi I’m Christina Xenos ~
Welcome to my kitchen!
Personal Chef Services
Cookbooks and Collaborations
I am the co-author of two cookbooks: Opa! The Healthy Greek Cookbook: Modern Mediterranean Recipes for Living the Good Life (Rockridge Press, Nov. 2017), a collection of 90 Greek recipes, which offers a creative new voice in the cannon of Greek cooking; and Saffron, an 88-page, full-color travel-cookbooklet that explores saffron in Greece, tips on best uses and storage of the spice, 12 lively saffron-forward recipes to inspire the beginner and advanced home cook, and a photography story of the annual saffron harvest in Krokos, one of forty small villages in the town of Kozani, Western Macedonia, Greece.
I’ve also worked with brands like MorningStar Farms, Athens Foods, Ninja, Russell Stover Chocolates, and Thermomix to collaborate and develop recipes and pop-up events around their product lines.
In March 2018, I was also one of six featured chefs and members of Les Dames d’Escoffier International to cook with Master Chef Argiro Barbarigou at the James Beard House for her Aegean Secrets dinner, where we served an 8-course menu celebrating the cuisine of the Southern Aegean Islands.
