Superyacht Chefs Competition at the YCM

Superyacht Chefs Competition at the YCM

By Staff Writer - February 27, 2019

Some of the region’s finest yachting chefs will come together for the second edition of the Superyacht Chefs Competition in Monaco.

The Monaco Yacht Club, as part of its ‘La Belle Classe Academy’ training centre, is partnering with Bluewater to organise the culinary competition, under the presidency of H.S.H. Prince Albert II. The event will bring together 12 chefs working on superyachts over 40 metres in length.


Over the course of four 30-minute rounds, three chefs will each prepare an original dish based on a basket of mystery ingredients comprised of fresh products and herbs. Only three finalists will be able to compete in a grand finale where they will once again have to cook with a mystery basket of ingredients in only 45 minutes.


The competition will be judged by some of the great names from the catering world, including Michelin starred chefs Virginie Basselot, Jacques Maximin, Thierry Thiercelin, Christian Plumail, and Cedric Seguela (founder of Secrets de cuisines in Antibes and former on-board chef).


This year will also see a Mixology Competition, organised and led by YCM bartender Giorgio Rocchino, voted the best Italian bartender and recognised as 3rd best in Europe. Nine candidates will have to prepare a cocktail with prescribed ingredients and will only have 10 minutes to make their beverage, while following very strict rules. Only three will be chosen as winners, judged by three judges of excellence in this field.

The event will be held on 18th April, with the Yacht Club aiming to highlight certain trades of yachting, which is the 4th largest industry in the Principality. It also continues the YCM’s goal of positioning Monaco as a centre of excellence in the yachting sector.
