Sit back and relax, our chefs have the cooking and washing up covered! They will keep the boat stocked up with delicious local delicacies.
We aim to make sailing accessible to everyone. Your skipper will navigate your yacht through paradise all week, while your chef gets creative on your floating home to provide you with the freshest local cuisine. And don't worry about cleaning up, they have that sorted too. These little extras will make a big difference to your dream holiday.
We will be in touch with you before you sail to make sure we know about any dietary requirements you might have so that your chef can build a delicious menu that suits you. With their vast knowledge and experience of each destination, they will be bringing you local delicacies daily. As well as keeping you looked after on-board, your chef will also be on hand to book any extra excursions for you throughout the week, recommend the absolute best restaurants from island to island, and introduce you to the locals!
San Francisco, CA by way of Boston, MA
Technically, I went to culinary school in Cambridge,MA, but my mom taught me how to be a great hostess. She has always thrown the best family gatherings and massive dinners. No one's glass is ever dry or their plate empty. When I moved to San Francisco, I began hosting my own dinner parties and discovered that nothing makes me happier than a table full of good friends laughing over great food and wine.
My first sailing trip was with friends in the British Virgin Islands in the spring of 2012. I was instantly addicted! Nothing beats waking up to a sunny day on clear blue waters in the middle of paradise. I made sure our skipper was always well fed and he taught me the basics of tacking and dropping anchor.
I love feeding large groups and using locally sourced food and wine. The mussels are amazing and so fresh! Especially when steamed in a white wine, garlic and butter sauce. I usually serve this with a light caramelized onion risotto and pair it with whatever wine I've used for the mussels. My favorites are the dry white wines from Vis, Croatia. For a light snack it's hard to go wrong with prosciutto wrapped melon and a glass of sparkling wine before dinner!
Having pre-dinner cocktails and snacks after mooring up in Primosten (Croatia). We were all relaxed after a full day of sailing and swimming, chatting about what everyone does back in the real world when the sun started setting over the cathedral in the center of Hvar. We all silently watched it sink down and each one of us forgot about the real world completely.
Catering for a bike and wine tour company in San Francisco and counting down the days until my next sailing adventure!
