About Cristina

Hello! I’m Cristina Maria Curp, Cuban-American, mother, wife, eater and dreamer. The chef and creator of the Castaway Kitchen, a blog where I share my recipes, health journey and adventures in Hawai’i (or wherever I am living).  I have been able to heal my body and greatly improve my quality of life through diet. Paleo has helped me achieve a level of remission with my autoimmune diseases that I never thought possible. This is where my passion for paleo comes from.

Food, creating and cooking has always been a love of mine, but being able to heal through food changed my perspective on diet forever.I’m always quick to answer a question, reply to comments and emails. I like to be there for you all as the online paleo community was there for me during my healing process.

I was born in Miami to Cuban immigrants, my parent’s lives have been difficult, they suffered more than most before they were teenagers. It often seems as if their past, living in a communist country, being persecuted, fleeing in boats, starting from nothing, happened to other people. My parents are the most loving, hardworking and honest humans I have ever met. My childhood was that of dreams and fairy tales. So much love, amazing family adventures, and an abundance of good food. A lot of food.

A family of avid cooks and maternal figures that dote on their loved ones, usually by feeding them. Cooking is in my blood. My father owns a butcher shop and my mother a farm to table café. As school children, my sister and I were those kids that took giant thermos with picadilloand rice for lunch. Ana, my mother was and still is unwavering in her commitment to nourish her family, and everyone else. Famous for her delicious meals, our house was always brimming with guests relishing large vibrant salads and grilled meats. This is where my love of food was born, where I first learned to cook; an eat-in kitchen with a red ceramic sink and a table full of friends and family.
