Having hosted Best Recipes Ever on CBC TV, Christine’s first book, Honest to Goodness was recently published to rave reviews. Her skills include professional food styling and recipe development.
This Newfoundland native and mother of two has been passionate about food, film, fashion and television for as long as she can remember.
She was scouted in a mall fashion show at the age of 15 and, soon after being ‘discovered’, Christine began modeling for beauty campaigns around the world. Building on her modeling career, she then honed her talents as a trained actor for both film and television and has appeared on-screen in high-profile productions for networks including HBO and ABC Family.
No matter where her adventures in front of the camera would take her though, her obsession for food and healthy eating was always there. She never forgot her love of cooking at an early age and longed to return to those culinary roots. She rekindled her love for cooking by enrolling in the Chef Training program at George Brown College in Toronto.
Christine’s culinary accomplishments include: regular guest chef appearances on daytime TV shows such as Rogers, Cityline, CTV’s Marilyn Denis, and CBC’s Steven and Chris. She was thrilled to join CBC Television and Canada’s most popular daily food show, BEST RECIPES EVER, as its new host. You will find her working behind the scenes as a food stylist, food writer and recipe developer. She has also worked in culinary production for shows such as Masterchef Canada and W Networks Pressure Cooker.
Christine is most at home in her kitchen crafting homemade artisanal goods. Whether she is doing a food demo at a trade show or teaching a cooking class, her down home personality mixed with culinary technique, makes cooking look easy.
Her new cookbook Honest to Goodness, published through Whitecap Books, was released August 2017 and it is not surprising that it is packed with mouth-watering, family friendly homemade recipes.
Christine’s down-to-earth and vivacious personality is contagious. She believes in looking and feeling good and is always eager to share her enthusiasm for great food and good living with others.
Christine Tizzard lives in Toronto with her two children.
