Chef Christina at Market

Hello BFM fans,

Chef Christina Crosdale embraces the
Jamaican side of her German-Jamaican heritage in the kitchen. She learned to
cook from her late great grandmother, beginning when she was five years old.
For more than a decade she worked for the US Postal Service while perfecting
her craft of cooking on the side. After obtaining her culinary arts degree from
the Art Institute of Washington, she went on to build her own catering company
The Exotic Chef — in 2012. Stop by the market table this weekend to sample her
freshly made Jamaican curry chicken.
