Yacht Chef Eric Davis won top honors at this year’s Yacht Chef Competition at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last night at Pier Sixty-Six. Four chefs, each with an assistant, cooked before an audience of more than a hundred people, as well as four celebrity judges. Separate kitchens were set up for each of the teams.

Davis has worked as a yacht chef on both private and charter yachts for the past six years. He has won several times at the Antigua Charter Boat Show Concours du Chef, including second place for yachts up to 125 feet in 2015 and first place for yachts of 125-164 feet in 2016.

Chefs prepared three dishes of their choice and judging was scored cumulatively, according to Derek Alleman, provisions, appliances and galley equipment specialist with National Marine Suppliers.

Other competitors were Chef Chris Parthemore, who has worked about five years in the yacht industry, primarily on M/Y Angel Wings, a 130-foot Westport; Chef Freddy Money, who works with the Tavistock Group, owners of Pier Sixty-Six  and The Sails marinas in Fort Lauderdale; and Chef Joel Collado, who has worked as a chef for the past decade.
