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.

These were places we’d always wanted to see – Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico, and Colorado’s Western Slope and eastern plains.
