Company recruits chefs for superyachts

Posted on

Gladstone Park Chefs is advertising the services of its Michelin Star “chefs-for-hire” via Yachtingpages.com.

Gladstone Park Chefs, of London, began marketing to the superyachters when four superyacht owners approached managing director John Bowman-Baker looking for on-board chefs, Yachting Pages marketing executive Kerry O’Neill said in a statement. “He spotted a niche and jumped right in,” she said.

The chefs had been referred by other yacht owners, Bowman-Baker said in a statement.

“Superyachts present unique opportunities for talented chefs,” Bowman-Baker said. “We at Gladstone are uniquely positioned to place our Michelin Star chefs and sous-chefs aboard them. Why? Due to our position in London’s top-end restaurant trade, we have developed unparalleled access to chefs working at hotels and restaurants with anything from 2 AA Rosettes up to several Michelin Stars. We are not specialist crew recruiters and do not advertise ourselves thus. But we are most definitely specialist chef recruiters. Ultimately, it’s easier for a Michelin Star chef to adapt to life aboard than it is for a galley cook to acquire a Michelin star.”

According to Berkeley Scott’s 2013 salary survey, a head chef in a London restaurant can expect to earn as much as 50,000 pounds. Though declining to comment on the earning potential for Michelin Star chefs aboard superyachts, John said compensation was “more than satisfactory.”
