Carolina was born in Athens where she grew up in a family with a long culinary tradition. She graduated from the American College of Greece (Pierce College) in 1997 and moved to the UK for six years, where she completed a BA in Media and Cultural Studies (Sussex University, Brighton) and an MA on Arts Administration and Curating (Goldsmith's College, University of London). In 2005 she set her museum career aside to follow her true passion: cooking! Since then she has been working as a chef, restaurant consultant and food stylist. Along with her work as CB's Athens bureau chief, she has written for various publications including Greek gastronomy magazine Gefsignostis (Γευσιγνώστης). She is the Culinary Producer of My Greek Table, a TV series on Greek gastronomy, broadcasted on PBS across the US. She has appeared on various cooking shows on Greek and Spanish TV and gives cooking classes and workshops in Athens. She has studied the history of food, loves everything edible and is fluent in English and Spanish. She is currently writing a cookbook that will hopefully be published soon!
