Now, after more than 15 years cancer-free, Christina Pirello is the Emmy award-winning host of Christina Cooks! on National Public Television, teaching whole foods cooking classes and lecturing nationwide. Christina is the author of Cooking the Whole Foods Way, Christina Cooks, and, most recently, This Crazy Vegan Life. She and her husband publish a natural foods magazine, Macrochef.
