This Newfoundland native and mother of two has been passionate about food, film, fashion and television for as long as she can remember.
She was scouted in a mall fashion show at the age of 15 and, soon after being ‘discovered’, Christine began modeling for beauty campaigns around the world. Building on her modeling career, she then honed her talents as a trained actor for both film and television and has appeared on-screen in high-profile productions for networks like HBO and ABC Family.
No matter where her adventures in front of the camera would take her, though, her obsession for food and healthy eating was always there. She never forgot her love of cooking at an early age and she longed to return to those culinary roots. She rekindled her love for cooking by enrolling in the Chef Training program at George Brown College in Toronto.
Christine’s culinary accomplishments include: regular guest chef appearances on daytime TV shows like Rogers’ Cityline, CTV’s Marilyn Denis, and CBC’s Steven and Chris. She was thrilled to join CBC Television and Canada’s most popular daily food show, BEST RECIPES EVER, as its new host where she got to choose her favourite dishes from Canadian Living’s renowned Tested-Till-Perfect recipe library and bring them to life every day for Canadians coast-to-coast. She has been a spokesperson and brand ambassador for such brands as Philips, Dairy Farmers of Ontario, and Bonne Maman to name a few. You will also find her working behind the scenes as a food stylist, food writer and recipe developer, and has worked culinary production for shows such as Masterchef Canada and W Network’s Pressure Cooker.
Christine is most at home in her kitchen crafting homemade artisanal goods, however, you can find her about town in various culinary media events. Whether she is doing a food demo at a trade show or teaching a cooking class, her down home personality mixed with culinary technique, makes cooking look easy. So it is no surprise that Christine will be taking you into her home and kitchen in a new YouTube cooking channel being launched in the next coming month.
Her new cookbook, published through Whitecap Books, will be released in 2017 and it is not surprising that it will be packed with mouth-watering, family friendly homemade recipes.
Christine’s down-to-earth and vivacious personality is contagious. She believes in looking and feeling good and is always eager to share her enthusiasm for great food and good living with others.
Christine Tizzard lives in Toronto with her two children.
