Charter yacht chefs win during Antigua Charter Yacht Show

Antigua Charter Yacht Show

The chef and interior crew of M/Y Sweet Escapes win during the Antigua Charter Yacht Show this year.

Charter yacht chefs worked their magic during the Antigua Charter Yacht Show last week, creating a three-course gourmet Caribbean gluten-free dinner and beverage as part of the competition’s healthy theme.

No pre-made items such as gluten-free pasta or bread could be used, and one dish, course or element had to be baked using a gluten-free flour. The judges tasted a starter, main dish and dessert from each of the chefs and judged them on the level of originality/creativity, presentation, taste/flavor, use of local Caribbean ingredients, execution of craft/technique, and overall impression.

Winners in the category of charter yachts of 160 feet and larger are:

1st place: Chef Craig Stevens of M/Y Icon

2nd place: Chef Gareth Alder of M/Y Deniki

3rd place: Chef Shannon Bates of M/Y Aquavita

Winners in the category of charter yachts of 100-159 feet are:

1st place: Chef Kyd Lyne of M/Y Sweet Escape

2nd place: Chef Michael Hobbins of S/Y State of Grace

3rd place: Chef Ryan Craig of S/Y Andromeda La Dea

Winners in the category of charter yachts up to 100 feet are:

1st place: Chef Sibylla Beebe of S/Y Lush

2nd place: Chef Audrey Harper of S/Y Aletheia

3rd place: Chef Sara Manning of S/Y Windquest

Overall Best Effort was given to Chef Claudia Salomon of S/Y Clevelander.

Interior crew were challenged as well in a tablescaping competition. This year’s theme was the welcoming pineapple; the national fruit of Antigua is the black pineapple.

Stews were judged on originality/creativity, style, suitability to the gluten-free Caribbean dinner, and presentation.

Winners in the category of charter yachts of 160 feet and larger are:

1st place: Nadine Coronado of M/Y Aquavita

2nd place: Valve Saarma of M/Y Nero

Winners in the category of charter yachts of 100-159 feet are:

1st place: Amy Cook, Nic and Kiki of M/Y Sweet Escape

2nd place: Estee Steyn of M/Y Capricorn

Winners in the category of charter yachts up to 100 feet are:

1st place: Chloe Vagg of S/Y Lush

2nd place: Corina Istrate of M/Y Soleado
