Charter Yacht Chef

Charter Yacht Chef Hannah is Chef Extraordinaire aboard power yacht¬†First-A-Fence. She’s also an experienced mariner and expert charter hostess. Charter guests on board Charter Yacht Chef Hannah's Top RecipesFirst-A-Fence are continually delighted with her recipes, but she hasn’t gotten around to publishing a cookbook yet. So, we are especially thrilled that Hannah has agreed to share her recipes here, as well as a little bit about herself.

Hannah grew up “in the biz”

Her Mother owned a coffee shop in Southampton, UK. As soon as she was tall enough to peer over the counter she started helping out after school. By the age of 14 she was a wiz at making Charter Yacht Chef Hannah's Top Recipesand serving sandwiches, salads, cakes, coffees and tea. Later, she attended college, Hannah worked as a waitress in a hotel, studying the daily menu and observing the chefs’ techniques, from preparation to plating. She realized she had a passion for the amazing artistry involved in being a chef.

Sailing to new horizons

Hannah’s launch into the charter industry began as a love story, when Hannah re-met Stuart. He was working on a 250-footer called Charter Yacht Chef Hannah's Top RecipesTalitha. They’d been friends and got back together when he returned briefly to the UK on holiday. It was perfect kismet! Six months later she quit her job and headed off to Turkey to work beside him on a monohull. She found her calling. Inspired, she returned to the UK in 2014 to attend Ashburton Cookery School and Chefs Academy.

For Hannah, the experience was rewarding. She says, “Ashburton, has the most amazing Charter Yacht Chef Hannah's Top Recipestutors. It is really in a class of its own. The school has won lots of awards. I loved the fact that I could literally cook all day. Ingredients are locally sourced from nearby farms, with fresh fish from the Devonshire and Cornish Coast. The downside – I put on lots of weight!!! We sat down to lunch and dinner everyday, snacking on the desserts and cookies we made in between.”
