Afrodite’s Kitchen

Blogger

Christina Loucas is a recipe developer, food photographer and creator of the popular food blog called “Afrodite’s Kitchen”. She specializes in simple, delicious recipes for a modern cook with a Cypriot touch. She is known for her beautiful food photography and for promoting traditional Cypriot food internationally through her writing and television appearances. She has a regular column in Taste Magazine. Her first international cookbook is due out in 2017. Before pursuing her love of food and photography, she obtained a law degree from Oxford University, as well as a BSc in Government and Economics from the LSE and practiced law for 6 years in London, England. Her passion for cooking comes from growing up in the restaurant business in Canada. Her dad was a successful restaurateur, and her mom a successful pastry chef with a focus on wedding cakes. She has an intermediate WSET certificate. She enjoys visiting her mother’s village in the Cypriot countryside, generally making a mess in her kitchen and growing her mismatched collection of kitchenware and cookbooks. She can usually be found cooking with her always-hungry pug by her feet, and photographing her food! Website, Instagram, Facebook
