Chef & Stewardess: Annick Denizot (France)
Annick is a French national, raised in the countryside of Villefranche sur Saône. She was very athletic as a child and was first introduced to sailing at summer camp. That was likely the spark that ignited her love of the sea. While she continues to enjoy sports of all kinds, sailing remains her top favorite.
Annick took courses in the hospitality industry, including a Professional Certificate of Kitchen. She also holds a nursing assistant certificate, which can be an asset for charter guests with special needs. Her 10 years of experience in the yachting industry have included working as a hostess and cook. The past seven months she has spent aboard MOOSE OF POOLE.
Mediterranean cooking is the style Annick enjoys most, particularly during European summers when local ingredients are fresh. Guests most rave about her fish tartare and cheese fondue. In the Caribbean, her menu is based on what is fresh and local. After a delicious meal, things don’t slow down if Annick has a say. She likes to sing and dance with her guests. It’s the most delightful way to burn off a few of the extra calories gained from such irresistible food.
