Meet the Chef
Christina Bailey created Edible Times Culinary Services out of her passion for fresh, nourishing, and most importantly delicious food. Using her experience from cooking in award-winning and Michelin-star restaurants, Christina developed a style of service that's Martha Stewart meets Thomas Keller. Think delicious, from-scratch meals enjoyed in the comfort of your own home, prepared using the highest of professional standards.
Passionate about both food and nutrition, Christina helps private clients achieve their dietary goals by sourcing fresh, local, and organic ingredients and preparing them with the utmost care. Christina graduated at the top of her class from the Culinary Institute of America, in Hyde Park, New York. Her journey through the restaurant industry includes time spent in Thomas Keller's flagship Bouchon Bistro in Yountville, California, SusieCakes Bakery in Brentwood, California, and the award-winning SideBern's (now Haven) of the Bern's Steakhouse family in Tampa, Florida. She is now a private chef in Boise, Idaho, serving clients with a variety of culinary experiences.
All recreational cooking classes are crafted to be a hands-on experience (knife work is adapted for young chefs). Chef Christina travels throughout the greater Treasure Valley area including the cities of Boise, Meridian, and Eagle. Locations in the Treasure Valley such as Caldwell and Nampa will incur a small travel fee.
While Chef Christina enjoys cooking and teaching Mediterranean cuisine. But she is well-versed in a range of cuisines and works with you to find a menu you are excited to cook. The chef sources and brings all of the ingredients and equipment. And is happy to make beer, wine, and cocktail recommendations.
A minimum of four students is required to book a class. Prices start at $115 per person for baking and pastry technique classes. Three-course dinner menus start at $125 per person.
Chef Christina prepares all the elements of your chosen menu from scratch using both traditional and modern cooking techniques (modernist macaroni and cheese, anyone?). With a focus on the current growing season, she recommends and sources local and organic ingredients whenever possible. A minimum of four guests is required, and a 50% deposit of the final menu is required to secure your date. Read more about private dining experiences from Edible Times here.
