Cristina Maria Curp is a blogger, chef and photographer with a background in market research and advertising. Cristina’s formal education includes a Bachelor’s in sociology and anthropology, with a strong focus on research methods. During her college years she also worked at Miami Market Research where she gained experience with leading brands. Later she interned at Frank Worldwide, a boutique advertising agency and had the chance to work on some of their largest accounts like Volkswagen, and pitch new ideas to brands like Tropicana. While she succeeded in that area, the kitchen called to her.
Eventually she left the corporate world to join her mother and sister open Green Gables Café, a farm to table restaurant in Miami, Fl. There she fine-tuned her natural cooking abilities into commercial chef skills while using her networking and marketing experience to promote and grow the cafe’s business. Her restaurant experience now also includes head chef at Harvest Kitchen in San Diego, and a pop up restaurant; Blue Plate.
The Castaway Kitchen was created in 2015 when she moved to Hawaii and felt the need to continue to share her love of real, whole ingredient food and healthy meals. Starting the blog prompted her to delve deeper into her autoimmune health and so began her healing journey. Two years later Cristina has healed her body through a paleo diet and lifestyle as well as grown a once hobby blog into a business.
