Triton networks with Culinary Convenience on March 4.
The Triton is cooking up networking on the first Wednesday of the month in March with Culinary Convenience in Ft. Lauderdale. Captains, crew and industry professionals are invited to join and enjoy a beverage and light snack on March 4.
Until then learn more from president and founder Aaron J. Michaels.
How did this all get started?
Culinary Convenience was thought of in 2002. The concept started as a mobile toy store for chefs. I would show up in the back of people’s kitchens and offer them all types of smallwares, cutlery, apparel and knife sharpening. Then customers asked for more products so we started distributing glassware, flatware, china, equipment, refrigeration, furniture, tabletop accessories and more.
What is your background?
I have a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management from Roosevelt University in Chicago. And great experience working for Phil Stefani restaurants in Chicago, Hyatt Hotels, and Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami Beach.
My wife, Limor, has a culinary/hospitality degree from Tadmor Culinary School in Herziliah, Israel. She has extensive experience in luxury hotels and restaurants in Israel. She has been with Culinary Convenience since 2003, just after we got married.
What do you offer yachts?
We offer knife sharpening, chef supplies and uniforms, chief stew supplies and galley equipment. We offer consulting services and design food service establishments. We have also added a new line from Room360 for luxury bathroom items and fixtures. It made sense for us, as the stews usually come with the chef, so we are not straying from our goal of what we do best.
How can crew best do business with you?
They can call (+1 954-525-0011), e-mail (email@example.com) or visit our Web site for online ordering (www.culinary-convenience.com).
Our store hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. During the busy season (October until May) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. We also have a mobile store with services available by appointment.
What are favorite products of yacht crew?
Yacht crew love cutlery, uniforms, immersion circulators, fryers, kitchen gadgets, utensils, knife sharpening and more. There is so much for the galley.
Tell us about a few interesting products.
The DecoSpoon is a set of saucing spoons that give you the ability to draw intricate lines and patterns. They even allow you to write legibly with a variety of sauces. Chefs can use their creativity to create wide or thin strokes, overlays and dots. It’s a way to turn a plate into a canvas.
The Smoking Gun is great for finishing products that are cooked sous vide or other ways where food is not directly exposed to fire or smoke. Chefs can use flavors, such as hickory, mesquite, applewood, cherrywood and even lavender or clove.
The Immersion Circulator is excellent for preparing food sous vide. It uses precise temperature control.
What do you see as galley trends?
So far, anything cool and useful is what crew like. Ecological products are becoming much more popular, as are equipment and supplies catering to specific diets.
What do you see in the future for chefs and yacht galleys?
Specialized services catering to chefs and crew. And yacht galleys getting the equipment needed in order to satisfy the demands of dietary restrictions.
