My name is Christina Xenos. Welcome to my kitchen!
I am a professional chef, cookbook author, recipe developer, and journalist based in Los Angeles, California. My company, Sweet Greek Personal Chef Services, tantalizes palates throughout the city with full culinary services, cooking classes, and Greek-themed pop-up dining experiences, which have been featured in Food & Wine magazine among other media outlets.
I provide busy professionals, families and food lovers with an array of professionally prepared, fully customized menus, created with hand-selected fresh ingredients. These meals are prepared from scratch in your home; then packaged, stored and labeled with simple re-heating instructions. All you have to do is come home to a spotless kitchen and enjoy.
In addition to my in-home personal chef and meal prep services, I am also available to cook for private parties and offer private and group cooking classes where you can learn to make everything from baklava to braised short ribs.
I am the co-author of 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. I’ve also worked with brands like MorningStar Farms, Athens Foods, Ninja, Russell Stover Chocolates,  and Thermomix to collaborate and develop recipes around their product lines.

My goal is not only to create delicious food for you, but also to teach you how to feed yourself and your family. You can find some of my most popular cooking videos here, or check out my YouTube channel for a larger selection. I have also recently appeared on The Cooking Channel’s Food: Fact or Fiction and NBC’s A New Leaf.

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.
I am Greek-American, with family roots on the islands of Crete and Milos. My culinary career began at an early age baking Greek delicacies for Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church festival in Dayton, Ohio. I honed my chef skills in professional cooking and baking at the New School of Cooking in Los Angeles, and I often return to Greece — especially my family’s home on the south coast of Crete — to indulge in the local offerings.
