Chris hails from Brooklyn but has called Denver home since his family relocated in 1995 to open a pizzeria.  Growing up in an Italian family, food was his second language.

An accomplished comedian, Chris has been performing stand-up since 1999 when he made his debut at Comedy Works.  When he's not guiding food tours, Chris can be found in his kitchen serving up delicious home-cooked meals.
