Chef Kristina Kuzmic
Winner of "Your OWN Show"
Born and raised in Croatia, Kristina is a Southern California based chef. In 2010, Kristina launched a website, stickycook.com, featuring stories, recipes and videos. A month after launching the site, Kristina entered the “Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star” competition. Two months later, she was in a face-to-face interview with Oprah Winfrey. Kristina was eventually crowned the winner and awarded a cooking show called The Ambush Cook on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
Energetic, funny, and obsessed with food and creativity, Kristina blends recipes she learned as a child from her beloved grandmother in Croatia, with fresh and innovative ideas that appeal to a wide audience of novices and seasoned cooks alike. Her dishes range from healthy to sinfully decadent, but all encourage people to enjoy the cooking process.
When not inventing new recipes and encouraging people to cook, you can catch Kristina speaking at various conferences and seminars, encouraging people to go after their passion and live fearlessly.
