"Yacht chefs work for a select international clientele who not only expect the best but demand excellence for every meal" said Executive Chef Philippe Gollino, Centre Formation d'Alain Ducasse (CFAD).
The courses are designed specifically for yacht chefs addressing the needs of some of the most demanding clientele in the world and will nurture skills for any event on board or on shore.

The four-day course covers everything from plated to finger food cuisine. Chefs will learn techniques to produce flawless international cuisine as well as how to design menus for demanding clientele.
