Fernando, originally from St.Lucia crewed on yachts for 18 years in the Mediterranean and Caribbean where he became well known for his cooking expertise.
He had a reputation as the best charter boat chef throughout the Caribbean for several years so much so that charter boat guests followed him from boat to boat in pursuit of his culinary delights. Fernando has also owned 2 restaurants and has written several cook books with Caribbean and vegetarian recipes.
Now he changed tack with his own yacht Calliope and cooks by special request only.
Like all professional cooks, Fernando can pleasantly surprise his guests in a tasteful manner. From Calliope’s well equipped galley, Fernando can thrill and delight you with the tastes and aroma of exquisite Caribbean cooking.
