It's my lucky year ! Yacht chef to be

2figs | Apr 11, 2009 11:40 AM

And indeed it is; few months back a client of mine at the resaurant I was Head chef asked me to be his chef on his yacht - I have been chewing over but as opportunities like this do not come so often - I did an all in!!!! I start in 8 weeks and getting organised...after working in the industry for over 16 years I have practically touched everything and feel confident but I also believe in not being too cocky and be prepared - the cooking might be the same but the challenges different!!
Could anyone of you guys who have or still work on board a vessel please give me some tips in private yachting. I understand that sometmes one does not find all products so one has to be very creative etc and that's no problem.
Will I have to bake my own bakeries for breakfast everyday!? If so I need ample stores of kilos of flour etc
I know I might be difficult - and I understand if I get no replies!! I always believe that one must try. Thanks
