British Virgin Islands Charter Yacht Show 2019 Top Yacht Chefs

Share

The 38th BVI Charter Yacht Show, hosted by Nanny Cay Marina, was held from November 7-10, 2019 in Tortola, British Virgin Islands. More than 60 yachts and 100 yacht charter professionals attended the on-water charter show to vet the very best in the upcoming charter season. The much-anticipated Culinary Contest reveals the talents and commitment to charter brokers and ultimately to charter guests when crew participate with their hearts and souls.

Congratulations to all the players! Here are this year’s Top Yacht Chefs and winning yachts at the 2019 BVI Charter Yacht Show.

Theme: “Under the Sea”

Coordinator, judge and author of Ship to Shore Cookbooks Jan Robinson is shown above with 2019 BVICYS Top Yacht Chefs Hannah (S/Y LUNA) and Nia Mora (S/Y JAN’S FELION). Captain Jan Robinson advises participating chefs when he/she can expect the judges to visit his/her boat. Judges are prompt.

Chefs are expected to prepare 2 dishes – one for tasting (and 4 forks, please), and the other for photography purposes.

Preparation should be done by the Cook/Chef as representative of a dish they would serve on charter.

Along with awards for best in each category there is an award for the best use of local produce.
