The end of Superyacht Chef

You may want to read my new blog here

Well folks it's a sad day as i have to announce my retirement from the world of yachting. After three years and travel to all corners of the world i am finally calling it quits! Nothing to do with the job but more to do with what is happening over at my other blog iFoods .I started it just over a month ago with all the best video recipe i have and it has turned into a bigger success story than even i could ever have imagined! So now myself and a group of investors have deceided to make it into a professional company and produce over 500 video demonstrations with proper camera men and a full production company. We will be filming in Ireland in May and launching at the start of June. We are looking to bring large partners into our operation and have some intersting options already, we never could have imagined the interest there was out there for this sort of stuff.

So where does this blog go from here? I guess it continues following me around and i take the camera with me but instead of exotic locations and superyachts you will get an insight into the world of starting a company and rapidly expanding a golbal brand and a whole new way of cooking! The most important thing for me is the fundraising and i hope to continue that and indeed think i will be in an even better position not that i will be able to leverage my higher profile to make more money for the cause! For those of you interested in cooking, just go to iFoods . I also have connections in the yachting world an will continue to write and post videos about superyachts.

Don't worry we still have a month of travelling around the caribbean and exotic places before i go into filming Ifoods. The onlt thing that worries me is going back to rainy Ireland, how will i ever cope???

Congratulations! We in the yachting world will miss your "life aboard" posts, but I know you'll do well with iFoods. Your passion for cooking and for food comes shining through, and I wish you great success.

Don't worry about the weather back home! It's been blue skies for the last few days! Temperature might not be great but.....

For all of us who dream of spending our days cruising round paradise, it's worrying when someone decides it ain't what it's marked up to be!
Good luck with the new venture, and look forward to seeing you when you get down to West Cork!

Hey Sauceboat!

I hear you are coming back to the real world - Northern Ireland draws everyone home eventually and you know it makes sense or you wouldn't be doing it! You never know who you will bump into when you get back to Tyrone....
Think of all the stories you will be able to tell for the rest of your life.
It's a big step but the right one.x

I would love to know how does one apply for such a job? I have 8+ years experience as a chef in NY, DC, LA and Vancouver. I am trained in traditional kaiseki and Mediterranean (Greek, Italian, Lebanese, French). I am multi-lingual (Greek, Italian, Spanish, Russian, English). I have found it hard to break into the yachting world as they seem to want yachting experience, which I don't have but I have fine dining experience and as a Greek woman, I lived aboard my uncle's (sea captain) ships, as a child. I would love some feedback from you and maybe even some assistance, which I would be immensely grateful for. I could email my resume and references. Thank you for listening and good luck on your future endeavors.
