Meet Christy Rost

Public Television chef and host Christy Rost is the author of three cookbooks, a television and radio personality, lifestyle authority, entertaining guru, cooking teacher, recipe developer, home restoration expert, Registered Nurse, and popular guest chef for food and wine festivals, home shows, women’s expos, major retailers, and charity events.

Based in Texas and passionately dedicated to the celebration of Home and Family, Christy’s focus on sustainability, farm to plate, cooking with local ingredients, and food and wine pairings is heavily influenced by the months she lives and works in her recently-restored 1898 Breckenridge, Colorado historic mountain home. Conversing with farmers, ranchers, wine producers, distillers and food artisans, and being intimately connected each day with the land, water, and nature, has a profound effect on Christy’s commitment to sustainability.

BIG Flavors For The BIG GAME!

Millions of American football fans will be tuned into their television sets this Sunday to watch the faceoff in Houston, Texas between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots. Yes, I’ll be in front of my TV set too, but I’m mainly there for the ads and the FOOD!

These days, it seems the game-day buffet is every bit as popular as what's happening on the football field, and that can be a good thing, because food has always been a conduit to bring family and friends together. Chips, dips, hearty sandwiches, pizza, ribs, wings, and beer – traditional football fare is as varied as the household hosting the party. One thing these menus all have in common though, is bold flavors and food that’s easy and fun to eat.
