From Auckland, New Zealand and currently residing in the south of France, Edward has always been around food and great ingredients. Initially trained in interior design at Auckland’s University of Technology, his passion and desire to cook came to the forefront and that could not be ignored. He went on to further his studies, training as a chef at the Auckland Hospitality School for Chefs. He’s 39 years old, a married father of one and moved to France around five years ago looking to further his career and knowledge, which eventually put him in the direction of working in yachting. Being from New Zealand and having grown up in and around yachting, the two seemed a perfect fit. He has worked on catamaran Muse for four seasons and going onto his fifth, having worked with three separate captains. He has worked as chef in multiple restaurants and also on previous yachts including motor, one which was based in Italy, where he was stationed for six months cooking for the owner on board and at his private villa. He enjoys cooking French, Italian and Asian cuisines but love learning. Having completed an Atlantic crossing a year ago, he looked forward to the challenge of the Caribbean and the wonderful new ingredients and challenges it proposed and it was everything and more than expected. His ultimate goal is to give the guests more than they could ask for on any given day and continue to learn and travel, gaining experience from all over the world and using that to make people happy through food.
