Bridging the gap between ship & shore

Training centers
Antibes, Secrets De Cuisine
For more information regarding those courses, do not hesitate to contact our training centers.
A major new initiative of 2010 has been the installation of our yacht training galley in Antibes. With eight student stations and one for the instructor, the galley simulates the conditions found on a yacht.
Whatever the size of yacht, providing excellent food for both guests and crew is a crucial ingredient in the recipe for successful yacht operation.

The chef's role varies on every yacht. Although larger yachts are run like Michelin star kitchens, smaller yachts will often employ dual role stewardesses, engineers or deck crew to run the galley. We offer an array of courses to suit cooks & chefs looking to broaden their skills and develop menu plans. The galley foundation course is designed for smaller yacht chefs and crew cooks whereas the seasoned chef course was created to convert highly trained shorebased professionals into sea going yacht chefs ready for action.

Also, hygiene courses are obligatory for all crew involved in handling and serving food. Bluewater will be delivering food safety courses in the near future in time for yachts to comply with forthcoming legislation.
After having completed the galley course in bluewater, I feel much more secure in the galley preparing adventurous meals using ingredients that I would not have used before the training. We have already completed 6 weeks of charter this season and so far all of the guests have been blown away by what I have been serving...
