Antigua Yacht Show: Top Yacht Chefs

Top Yacht Chef and Crew Awards 

Capt. Jan Robinson

The top 3 reasons people charter a yacht are the itinerary, the yacht and, of course, the food.  Savvy yacht owners thus strive for high quality cuisine.  At the 2015 Antigua Yacht Show, the culinary contest was amply impressive.  Here we recap a personal visit to the show’s culinary competition.  Congratulations to all the winners for your spectacular creations.  Enjoy these brief video interviews with Capt. Jan Robinson, herself an award winning author who has coordinated the contest for a number of years, and Chef Michelle Bonetti, voted Top Yacht Chef.   ~Carol.
