Kristina Cho grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, where family and cooking were a huge part of her life. Before becoming a food blogger, Kristina studied and worked in architecture and interior design. Architecture introduced her to the work of Charles and Ray Eames, Mies van der Rohe, and Eero Saarinen. But she spent all her time outside of the architecture studios discovering the flavors of Skyline Chili, Goetta, and Graeter's Ice Cream--all southern Ohio culinary classics. Today she has dedicated her professional career to making, teaching, writing about, and photographing Chinese baked goods and cafe food. She runs a regular dumpling-making workshop and also has been an instructor at Dragers Cooking School in San Francisco. Kristina's website, EatChoFood, receives tens of thousands of visitors each month.
