The Hosts

CHRISTINE HMIEL From nine-to-five, Christine works in the non-profit world of affordable housing and community development. After hours, you can find her cooking up a storm in her teeny tiny kitchen, curled up on the couch with a stack of good books, or hosting wild one-person dance parties. Christine lives in downtown Albany and likes to imagine a life filled with freshly baked bread, tea parties and 1970s kitchenware. She is passionate about the need to build vibrant communities that are connected to healthy, sustainable food sources and she thinks From Scratch Club is a great place to figure out how to do it. Christine writes about her efforts to create meaningful traditions and experiences over at her blog Unspeakable Visions. Christine is the Managing Editor & Podcast Captain at From Scratch Club.

CHRISTINA DAVIS Finding her true calling, connecting people to their local foodshed, Christina is the CSA Coordinator for Kilpatrick Family Farm. At the homestead, she is the Chef de Cuisine, Master Baker & Head Food Preservationist to her husband Charles and their 2 year old son, Miles Jae. Although always a supporter of local, sustainable, humane and whole foods, Chris is now on a serious mission to bring those principles into her kitchen due to Miles Jae’s multiple food allergy diagnosis, asthma and the rare disease, EE. All of her recipes are dairy, soy, tree nuts, peanuts, gluten/wheat, pea, corn & sesame free. She is the Editor & Founder of From Scratch Club.
