About This Event

Embrace spring with the Lebanese-inpired dishes of Chef Cristina Topham, chef-owner of Spread Kitchen in Sonoma. Her menu includes classic flavors from the Mediterranean.

Her culinary journey began in 1999 when she quit a Wall Street job and graduated from The French Culinary Institute in New York City. Her career grew with line cook jobs in New York, catering for boutique wineries and heading kitchens for superyachts traveling the Mediterranean. 

She returned to Sonoma County seven years ago to open Spread Catering, which took root as a brick and mortar restaurant in 2022.
