YACHT CHEF

I am passionate about cooking modern French, Italian, Mediterranean food, and I have a good understanding of Asian Cuisine, simple and complex in flavor and plated beautifully. Provisioning in remote locations, requires organization, proper planning and detailed menus. I love to use fresh,  organic and local ingredients where possible.
