Cristian Marino is a chef, blogger, and author who has traveled the world since 1999 and currently resides in the Maldives. He is also a Certified Health & Nutrition Life Coach.

Born in Milan in February 1982, he moved to Calabria at a very young age, and soon Cristian began learning cooking from their parents' restaurant. At the age of 17, he left the South. He moved back to the North of Italy where he studied at the prestigious institute "Erminio Maggia" Hotel school in Stresa on the shore of the Maggiore Lake and spent the evenings working in hotels and restaurants in the area, sometimes as a cook and others as a waiter.

Before leaving Italy to explore the world, Cristian made sure that he attained enough of what Italy had to offer by working in different regions of the "Bel Paese." From the sea to the mountains, South to north, passing through central Italy, including Abruzzo, Calabria, Piedmont, Aosta Valley, and Lombardy. Wich means assimilating different traditions and cultures and learning other ingredients and techniques.

From established Executive Chef of 5 stars Hotels to Culinary Consultant:

His passion has taken Cristian across Italy, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, where he has gained extensive culinary and life experiences.

Cristian's resume includes a travel experience in over 10 countries.

He has also obtained and maintained 'The Golden Q' from Ospitalità Italiana for most of the Italian restaurants he has worked.

He also received the 'Silver Plate "that he had obtained after a thematic dinner organized with the Accademia Italiana Della Cucina representative in one of the hotel's restaurants he had worked for.

He has experience in Italy, France, the UK, Spain, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Indonesia, and Dubai. The chef has also traveled and been inspired by the over 30 countries he has visited while working for Silversea – a multi-awarded six stars Cruise Ship.

He affirmed his career as Executive chef in Europe for Radisson Blu and InterContinental.

From 2019-2020, the Executive Chef served as a Complex Executive Chef for two pre-opening Marriott Hotels & Resorts in East Java-Indonesia.

He has now become an Italian Chef consultant for the global hospitality market and lives between Italy and the world.

Cristian Marino currently lives in the Maldives and works as an Executive Chef for one of the largest resorts in the country, gathering new experiences that will bring a unique "flavor" to his next book.
