In the video below, Rost walks Culinary-TV viewers through the steps of making a rhubarb tart:
Rost is the author of three cookbooks and a television and radio personality who’s passionately dedicated to the celebration of home and family. Her focus on sustainability, farm-to-plate and cooking with local ingredients is heavily influenced by living in the American West. She has a commitment to sustainability that comes from working with farmers, ranchers and food artisans, and being intimately connected each day with the land, water and nature that surrounds her.
Rost’s ongoing fascination with history, food and people of the American West is reflected in her more recent immersion into cowboy cuisine and live-fire cooking. She will be introducing the Culinary Channel’s audiences to American Frontier and Native American heritage foods such as bison, venison, lamb, beans and corn in addition to family-fun cuisines such as mac and cheese, fresh fruit salads and pizza. Rost provides tasty solutions for today’s healthy diets and a connection with American West culture.
Rost was the host and executive producer of her own Texas television cooking and lifestyle show, “Just Like Home,” for 12 years. She has been interviewed by Oprah.com and Martha Stewart Radio and is a frequent guest on WGN-TV in Chicago, FOX-4 in Dallas and KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh for her expertise in cooking, entertaining and easy mealtime solutions.
The Culinary Channel, who set multiple records for its February 2021 Roku Ratings, welcomes Christy Rost who is certain to delight viewers across the United States. The Culinary Channel drew record numbers of Men, Women and Households with an average of 3.1 million viewers each month in the United States, over 400,000 in Canada and 250,000 viewers in the UK.
