Hailing from Phillipsburg, NJ, Chef Christina Wilson moved to Philadelphia to pursue her cooking passions.
In 2005, Chef Wilson jumped head first into an unpaid apprentice position at Stella Blu, later becoming sous chef. She then shifted gears to kitchen manager of Gypsy Saloon located in West Conshohocken to pay her way through Temple University.
Natural talent and self guided passion helped Christina climb to sous chef within two years of prepping her first kitchen shift. Having learned all that was available to her at Stella Blu, Wilson lmoved to Center City, Philadelphia to tackle her next position head on as sous chef at 13th Street’s, Lolita (Philly Top 10 Traditional Mexican Cuisine Restaurant), in 2009.
Christina quickly became accustomed and took both creative and managerial command of the kitchen and ascended to Chef de Cuisine in under a year. Yearning for more knowledge and varied experience, Chef Wilson later moved to Top 50 Philadelphia restaurant, Mercato, as Chef de Cuisine. Christina created trendsetting and unique daily specials for the Italian eatery in addition to launching its lunch service this past spring.
