    Who will be teaching? 

    Cristina (she/her) is a secondary school Food Studies teacher who loves all things food related!

    She moved to Melbourne and away from her mum’s delicious Taiwanese cooking and has since, out of desperation for the taste of home, learned many of her favourite foods through virtual cooking classes with her mum.

    She is now working through writing a cookbook honouring her mum’s recipes while putting an ethical and sustainable twist to it.
