About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Renovating my home kitchen / Making people happy with good food.

ABOUT ME

I am mad about food. I like to travel and getting to know all the specialties (food, culture) of your World. And when you are in Poznan, you probably have a chance to visit me on one of my couchsurfing-dinner-parties. Besides that I was DJing (rock/pop/indie), love to dance and watch bizzare movies (fantasy, SiFi, Horror, Trash).

Update: I moved to Poznan and work as freelance chef, culinary tourguide and in organising foodfestivals. You can find some of my works on www.facebook.com/kuchniachrisa

PHILOSOPHY

relax ! After a ventricular fibrillration in 2007, I realized, what an amazing gift life is. And that we should not stress ourself too much.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

The regular thursday meetings of CS started in my restaurant in Poznan in 2010. I do dinnerpaties where I try to bring as many nationalities as possible together at my table.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have not surved so much but having a huge hosting experience ! I studied at the european filmcollege where we have been 120 students from 27 different nations and whenever I needed a place to stay in other capitols around europe I just contacted one of my collegues like they do when the are in Berlin or now in Poznan. Every single experience was great , I am happy that I learned something from every single Surfer that has visited me.
In my first year in CS I hosted over 50 people. Back then I also organized many CS meetings.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I survived a ventricular fibrillation. Not that it is an "amazing" thing by itself, but it changes your view on life. You see the world with different eyes.
