Private Yacht Cuisine Rivals 5 Stars. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Seven Five
Star establishments have been reserved exclusively for you and your guests.
There are no menus and each guests' meal is being handcrafted by a world class
trained chef while the rest of the white-gloved staff are focused on creating
an absolutely divine dining experience for you. It doesnt matter if you charter
a power yacht
or a monohull sailing yacht
enjoy scrumptious and delightful cuisine that is paired perfectly with a fine
wine chosen expertly by your sommelier.
Laurel Evans, a cookbook author and food writer in the USA, best defines what to expect from your chef on a luxurious yacht vacation. "For me, a true fine dining experience must include
some eye-widening element of surprise. Something in the menu, the presentation, the atmosphere and the flavors should startle my senses into paying undivided attention to the moment.
If a dish can make me laugh out loud, in amused stupefaction and delight, I consider myself finely dined."
Fine dining at its very best with delectable cuisine is what you can expect
on a daily basis during the entire time that you are on your power
. At every meal your chef will prepare your favorite foods using
only the finest and freshest ingredients and perhaps you are seeking new and
tantalizing foods that you have always wanted to try but may never found them
offered on any menu.
Have you ever tried braised rabbit with pears and turnips, or oven roasted bacon wrapped quail, or even clams and chorizo sausage cataplana?
Do you have a penchant for sweets? Perhaps you'd like to try "Death by Chocolate"
with a crème Anglaise sauce, or caramelized banana spring rolls with a caramel
sauce, or a dark chocolate and mascarpone layered mouse served in a chilled
martini glass with cookie cigar? Whatever you like, whenever you like -just
let the captain and chef know and they will do their best to make sure that
you get it.
Recently, I had the opportunity to spend some time over lunch with Chef Joseph
Stiles, an award-winning chef on the luxurious 120' motor
. Chef Joseph was trained at the acclaimed Western Culinary
Institute, a Le Cordon Bleu accredited school in Portland, Oregon. It was a
slightly one sided conversation as I kept busy sampling the various dishes he
prepared so I could experience first hand his culinary skills. It was during
this lopsided conversation that he told me that 'pastries and sauces' are his
best-kept secrets. One of his accolades includes winning the 'Best Entree' in
the Taste of St. Croix.
Joseph brings his passion for food and wine to the intimate setting of Freedom. He strongly believes that "simple food prepared to perfection is the mother of all foods".
Yacht owners are very successful and wealthy individuals who want and demand the best for themselves and their families. That definitely includes selecting the very best captain,

So how does one let the captain and crew know what you like to eat, what wines
and liquor to have on board, where you want to go and what you want to do when
you get there? You tell them. About 2 weeks before your charter vacation begins
you are sent a Food and Beverage Preference questionnaire to fill out. It is
on this form where each person gets to select their choices foods, drinks, snacks.
Any special needs/requests as well as any dietary restrictions or requirements.
Also you can indicate to the captain crew what level and types of activity in which you'd like to be engaged whether laid back, active or even spontaneous, early or late risers, places
you'd like to see, etc. About 10 days prior to your charter, the captain of your yacht will call you to discuss your upcoming holiday and answer any questions you may have. Let him know
if you plan to celebrate a special occasion. By letting the crews know in advance they can make the appropriate plans to ensure your celebration will be extraordinary.
Every tasty morsel served to you will be delightful whether it is a fabulous five course meal or canopies and h'ordoerves your food will always be exquisite. Now add in superb service
