Annually, yacht chefs and cooks compete at the Caribbean and Mediterranean yacht charter shows – and we are there for it all! Top yacht chef competitions are both deliciously entertaining and tremendously helpful as charter brokers work hard to “pair” clients with chefs for the best possible results.
Everyone’s palate is different. I have clients who request special diets from low salt, vegan, pescatarian, kosher, diabetic, kiddie fare, simple meat and potatoes to foodies requesting wine pairings with locally-sourced products.
We vet the “galley geniuses” who delight and nourish our clients, from professionally-trained chefs to “self-taught” food experts with influence from “mamma’s kitchen”.
Support for Food and Culture
The mission of this exciting philanthropic group is “to inspire, advance and support women in food, beverage and hospitality to achieve excellence in leadership and philanthropy”.
Let’s look at the 2023 Top Yacht Chefs competition winners at the Mediterranean, British Virgin Island and US Virgin Island charter yacht shows.
For the curious
Here’s a fun read about 9th-century cooking competitions from Atlas Obscura:
In Medieval Baghdad, Rulers Held Elite Cook-Offs
The “Iron Chef of medieval times” could have serious consequences.
In the food-obsessed culture of ninth-century Baghdad, being a foodie was essential to getting ahead. Stories abound of the caliphs’, or rulers’, passion for cooking, eating, and talking about good food. They even participated in cooking contests, including one that ended in near-execution and exile.
