"The worst difficulties a yacht chef can face come from lack of sleep. I have had guests that pound music until 5 am and party and want snacks and what not all night but breakfast is still expected at 8am. It can be a 24-hour-a-day job. The last owner I worked for was like that. Oddest request? Hmmm...there's been a lot. I recently had a Mexican guest request cactus salad. I wasn't sure what that was or where to get cactus."
"This wasn't on a boat I worked on, but a friend of mine worked a charter for a Saudi billionaire and he tipped each member of the 15-man crew a brand new Mercedes-Benz S-Class."
"Fish and Chips as well as cheeseburgers get requested pretty often. I worked for a billionaire once who literally dipped everything in tartar sauce."
"I didn't commit to being a chef until my late 20's. I actually went to college for engineering! I cooked all the way up until I finished school and always knew I was good at it. I didn't commit until a really good job fell on my lap when I was helping with an engineering project in the engine room on a yacht."
