Enjoy the Pleasures of Lebanon with Cristina Topham
 

Cristina Topham of Spread Catering will present a delicious menu of specialties from her Lebanese heritage. 

Chef Cristina is a Bay Area native and third-generation Lebanese-American who has catered for Wine Country events since 2016, combining the influences of Lebanon with her French training and experience from cooking around the world. Her menu:

  • Fattoush Salad - Chopped Vegetable Salad with Spiced Pita Chips & Sumac Vinaigrette
  • Kibbeh Karaz - Lamb Kibbeh Meatballs with Sour Cherry & Pomegranate Sauce, Vermicelli Rice & Lemony Greens 
  • Mahoullabiya - Milk Pudding with Pistachios, Almonds & Orange Blossom Syrup

Her culinary journey began in 1999 when she graduated from the French Culinary Institute in New York City and became a line cook at Les Olivades in Paris, moving to Julia's Kitchen in Napa and The Savoy in New York City. In 2005, she became a chef in the yacht industry and cooked her way through Europe, the Caribbean, and Mexico, before returning to the Wine Country as a chef for wineries and private events.

Join us to learn about the exotic and delicious foods of Lebanon!
