…I am a sailing yacht skipper living in Mallorca and have travelled most of the world. My love of food and cooking developed when sspending much time at sea and using local produce from the many regional markets I have visited in places such as Mexico, Chile, Peru, Egypt, Indonesia, Vanautu, Fiji, Australia, New Zealand. The only professional experience I have is catering fo charter guests on various yachts. I particularly enjoy foraging for seasonal foods and here in Mallorca I am lucky to have a plethora of foods to choose from: grapes, oranges, lemons, figs, numerous natual herbs, pork, lamb and of course fantastic fish. I enjoy cooking outside and often load up my car with my mobile kitchen and head for the mountains or coast and appreciate cooking in beautiful environments (without tourists!)
Good food is in the quality of the ingredients and if you can pick it from a tree or catch from the sea so much the better.
Fortunately my life has allowed me to eat in many diverse, quality, restaurants whether they have been in downtown Manhattan or on the beaches of Thailand it has always fascinated me how the same ingredients can be made to taste so differently.
I hope this says something.

Bookkeeper

…I love food and the food business. When someone gets obsessed as a foodie, there is no going back to mainstream prepared foods. Even as a bookkkeeper, I have spent the last 9 years in restaurants. I used to personal chef, but man does that get hard as a 50 year old girl when you have no help.

Please accept my application. I don't post unless I have something to say. I basically want to join so I can learn. And, there is always something more to learn.

Thanks,

Carol

Originally a lawyer, I changed careers 7 years ago to become a chef. I am selftaught but driven by passion and instinct.
I started my career as a private chef and word of mouth helped me rapidly grow in Dubai. Within 2 years I had created MArta's Kitchen, Dubai's prefered boutique catering company.
I also launched a small lunch-only restuarant 2 years ago. the menu changes daily and the chefs serve and explain the dishes. The restaurant received an award as "Best Hidden Gem" only months from opening.

I cook what I want, what I like and I believe others will enjoy too. And I believe one can serve an amazing meal using common seasonal produce.

I have always loved food and food sciences. I have a degree in the natural sciences. I was always in the Health and Safety Consulting world. Yet, a divorce allowed me to explore opportunities for a career change. The Culinary world was a perfect fit- family and friends agreed. Thus I recieved my Culinary management diploma and was an Intern at the Hilton in Barbados. I am now looking for other world wide opportunities. I love to explore new taste experiences and and apply science to find new and exciting food preparations and pairings. …
