HI, I AM LAURA.
And I am your personal yacht and villa chef.
I began my culinary career in 1993 in London. From there, cooking shoulder to shoulder with amazing chefs, I discovered different cuisines and approaches to food.
In 2001 I started to work on amazing sailing boats learning how to deal with a constantly challenging environment and changing types of ingredients available.
Well versed in preparing ethnic food using the freshest ingredients, I enjoy creating unique dishes that blend unexpected flavour combinations.
dishes i created for boat owners, regattas and villas
FOOD IS A TRUE SOURCE OF INSPIRATION FOR ME
Let me take you on a journey and make your day special through my cuisine.
WHAT MAKES ME SPECIAL
I’m able to work as a sole chef for different guests with different needs.
Using the freshest, local and seasonal ingredients I love to bring the full flavour of every single element to a dish.
For me cooking is a holistic process, paying the dishes I prepare the respect and love they deserve.
I believe food is the primary step to gaining a healthy body, soul and mind. By what we eat we can make a real difference to our unique Mother Earth.
Things that define me:
Able to work under pressure, very organized, meticulous about paying attention to each detail and keeping the kitchen always clean.
PLACES I HAVE WORKED IN
EXPERIENCE & LICENSES
Over the course of my career I had the chance to cook in many different environments: In mountain lodges over 2.000 meters high; in slow food restaurants where I would only cook on a wooden stove of the eighteenth century; on one-design sailing boats around the world taking care of a galley over the polar circle up to the north pole …
Nowadays I am based in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, and it is time for me to offer my experience and approach to food as a private yacht and villa chef on a freelance basis. Feel free to reach out and tell me your needs.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT ME
Laura is a brilliant chef and definitely loves what she is doing. During her time onboard she spoiled my crew and me with excellent food. I highly recommend her as a chef.
Laura is very passionate about what she does. You can easily tell by the dishes she creates. It was a real pleasure having her cook for us. Thanks so much for your great service, Laura!
Laura’s food is excellent and a real joy. Every day she managed to surprise me and my guests by adding a special touch or a little twist to it. Even under tough conditions when we were out at sea for a couple of weeks with no land stop she still managed to make everyone happy.
