Life's a beach...

It's not that there hasn't been much to write about - just a little crazed at the moment. A big post is in the works.

In the meantime, I have back-to-back interviews all day today for yacht chef positions heading to the Mediterranean. The most promising so far is a sous-chef position aboard a 55m (175 ft.) super yacht leaving for Monaco in just a few weeks. The boat is one of the busiest charter boats in the Caribbean and Med. (meaning lots of big tips) and has an excellent reputation in the industry for treating the crew well. There are 14 crew which I would be cooking for and then assisting the head chef with the preperation for up to 12 guests. Since I've never worked in the Med before this would give me the opportunity to learn how and where to provision, build up my confidence, learn from an experienced mega-yacht chef how the big yachts really work and it would be an excellent stepping stone as after this I would be able to basically choose any boat I could possibly want to work on. I meet the rest of the crew and the chef this afternoon (I interviewed with the chief stew and captain yesterday) and see the galley...

Other than that - been snorkeling in St. Barth and Anguilla, went to Moonsplash (a big reggae fest in Anguilla - and if you like reggae you should definately check out Muju Banton and Bankie Banx!). Averaging 3 calls a day for chefs jobs... So yeah, life's a beach...

More food posts coming soon.

Peace out.
