Dining with a Private Chef Aboard Your Yacht Charter- What to Expect
"What's for dinner?" Is that a dreaded question in your house? You feel uninspired and tired. The last thing you want to do is cook and have your family not want to eat what you cook.
What if you could let someone else do the work? You could sit back, relax, and simply arrive at the dinner table when it's time to eat.
Most of us don't have the luxury of having a private chef on call 24/7, but you can have one for a week. Spend a week with us on an Alaskan yacht cruise and enjoy the luxury of having someone else do the work of preparing your meals.
How it Works
When you charter a yacht in Alaska you should expect to have the highest quality of service. This means having a knowledgeable captain, attentive first mate and expert chef.
A quality chef will want to ensure that your dining experience is just as unforgettable as the rest of the experience. They will customize your dining experience to suit your family's tastes while also offering suggestions for new things to try.
Before arriving for your week of cruising in Alaska, you will be asked to fill out a preference sheet. Filling out this sheet is very important as it lets the chef know what to prepare and what to avoid. This sheet becomes even more important if someone in your party has allergies or specific dietary needs.
Don't be shy about letting the crew know what you want or don't want! Your charter crew is there to ensure that you have a fabulous time, they can't do that if you don't tell them your preferences. Expect your chef to include some local tastes. This lets you get a feel for the local delicacies.
A Win for Everyone
Your chef is there to cook for you and your guests. This is a big change of pace from cooking in a restaurant where you don't have personal interaction with your guests and the goal is to cook as many dishes as possible in an evening.
With cooking in a galley aboard your yacht charter, our chef gets to be creative, personalize dishes, and take care of you. You'll also find that many yacht charter chefs have diverse backgrounds. This enable them to create some amazing dishes.
You get to try new things while still having dishes that cater to you and your guests tastes.
