I was born into a family of bakers in Punta del Este, Uruguay. My grandfather's delicious recipes and secret techniques were passed down to my father, who in turn passed them on to me. It was in the family bakery that, as a child, I first experienced the magical transformation that takes place when a few simple ingredients (treated with great love and care) can turn into delicacies that bring entire communities together. My family's bakery was more than just a quick stop. Intrinsic to our community, the bakery saw countless birthdays and weddings; it was a home for the cherished everyday moments between friends and family. I grew up knowing that the best tasting products contain not only the finest ingredients, but also the love and care that surrounds them.
After moving to New York City with my soon-to-be husband and having our first child, I began thinking of ways to pass on the magic I grew up with. My mission in founding CHRISTTINE is to create authentic products my grandfather and father would be proud of, and products you'll be proud to share with your family. I've gone through great lengths to ensure my products are organic, kosher, and always delicious. My expertise allows me to make many of my own ingredients, which not only guarantees consistently unparalleled taste, but also maintains the highest quality standards in the industry.
CHRISTTINE is a family company founded on the principles I grew up with: great ingredients, with a lot of love and care, become staples of our communities and deliciously essential parts of our lives.
