I’m resting my soul and my mind in my house in the Tuscan mountains, working in the garden, enjoying the freshness of the air and the clean water
My mom, she has a very amazing developed palate, a good sense of spicing, is great with mixing flavours and a good eye for presentation.
Salt, garlic and onions.
I don’t really have favourite, I love them all and have a lot….
My paring knife, microplane, scraper.
Magimix, Kitchen Aid, Paco Jet, Anova, professional fast speed blender, grain cooker, Dyson.
Tuna but that’s my personal dislike.
Buckwheat, wild garlic, beetroot, horseradish.
My ice creams!
Japanese chef Jiro Ono, I would be super exited to taste sushi prepared by him
Depends on the time of the day and the mood, if I need to speed up, feel happy mixes, at nights something more relaxing.
Clean as you go!
Martinique, I could not find anything! But we managed to keep going for few days with what we had on the boat….My only advice would be to use great provisioners!
Occasionally working in a badly designed domestically-equipped galley – that can be challenging.
It’s frustrating when you are overlooked for a job because of your age or nationality, that can definitely be a problem in the yachting industry and it would be nice to see more equal opportunities for all and for jobs to be awarded on ability to do the job rather than factors that don’t influence how good a chef you are.
Some people are very passionate about what they do…everyone is different.
All can be solved in a good manner by talking…I think we need to be thankful for everything provided for us. Chefs do know that people are people and everyone misses home and their own fridges… We need to appreciate everything in life and what’s given to us and show respect.
Indian chicken curry with only chicken breast for crew.
A birthday cake last year for the boss’s birthday.
You can never know, you just take a chance on a person.
Recycling would be ideal, but on the boats it’s not always possible. Would love to work with no waste, but it’s not always possible ether. I guess just be cautious.
Buy quantities needed, try to use foods wisely, and give extra food to the crew… haha!
An architect, landscape designer or fashion buyer.
