This is me.
My name is Christina Lazarakis and this is Small Kitchen Chronicles. I am an actress by trade, a singer by evolvement, and a lover by heart. I create.
I am at my happiest when I do.
Cooking has been a lifelong love of mine ever since I was a little peanut. Having both a Greek mom and dad, I grew up around master cooks, who through example taught me that food equaled family and that love and magic were indeed, very, very real because they existed in every meal.
With a rolling-pin in one hand and a chef’s knife in the other, little Christina inevitably turned into big Christina, and though my creative journeys took many forms throughout the years (actress, director, singer, writer, visual artist, you name it), cooking stayed, steadfast and by my side, the entire time.
Small Kitchen Chronicles are my recipes, stories, tips, and advise inspired by, in, and around, my twenty-five and a half foot kitchen.
‘Cause even though your kitchen may be small, doesn’t mean you can’t cook and live big.
