Maria Cristina Berg is a chef, certified health coach, studying herbalist and reiki practitioner.
She has been in the food service industry for over 30 years. Over these years, many of her paths have changed, but food has remained her passion. With a big Italian family, she was always Moms helper in the kitchen and learned to feed a large group with the labor of love. At 15, she became a hostess in a friends Italian restaurant and fell in love with the business. She ended up in culinary school and studied the fine art of becoming a chef. Finding herself gaining weight and feeling exhausted, she started studying about health. This led to becoming a health coach and studying how food affects you, herbs and Reiki.
Food has always been there. Though the years she has moved through different phases from Italian, French, Mexican and Asian… finally taking all she learned and transforming it into healthier versions. She now has her own business, Food is Therapy, as a health coach and private chef.
Maria Cristina’s son Joseph has now joined the team as her partner. He is a graduate of culinary school as of 2021 and works as a line cook in fine dining. Joseph is Maria Cristina’s right arm in the kitchen and events. Great having Mom and her son’s in the kitchen!
