About Chef Christine Burns Rudalevige
Christine is a seasoned food writer and classically trained cook living in Brunswick, Maine. Her work and original recipes appear regularly in print for publications like Cooking Light, Eating Well, Fine Cooking, Edible Maine and The Coastal Table as well as online for Food52. Her weekly column in the Portland Press Herald, “Green Plate Special,” focuses on cooking and eating sustainably sourced foods from both land and sea. (Her award-winning cookbook published by Islandport Press in 2017 shares the same name.) Christine started working in professional kitchens at age 15, completed her formal culinary school training at 42 and has most recently enjoyed the thrill of co-owning Butter + Salt, a pop-up restaurant company based in Brunswick. She is also doing her part to make cooking at home once again commonplace, conducting monthly classes for students of all income levels.
