Kristina Kurek (she/her) is a Recipe Developer for several Hearst publications, including Good Housekeeping, Women’s Health and Prevention. In her nearly 30 years cooking professionally, she’s had her hand in many pots, including being at the helm at some of NYC’s top restaurant kitchens and serving as a culinary producer, magazine food editor, cookbook co-author, food stylist and private chef. She considers herself somewhat of a jack-of-all-trades in the kitchen but developing health-driven recipes that are nutritious, delicious and beautiful really lights her fire. When she is not geeking out over creating the most scrumptious recipes possible, she can be found snuggling with her dog, Nori, and/or nurturing her vegetable garden in the lower Hudson Valley whilst contemplating which seeds to plant next…..and then, of course, dreaming of what to cook up with the harvest!
