One of the most important jobs for a successful stewardess is to make sure that guests on board have gourmet yacht food complemented by equally generous quantities of wine, for the length of their trip.
So, before heading off as crew on a superyacht this summer, why not take a look at the following pointers from yacht provisioning experts Gourmet Deliveries.
It is a good idea to use a yacht provisioning template to make sure you have stocked up on the right products before leaving port. Sourcing the provisions you need in advance will help you a great deal. However, you may often receive unexpected and even strange requests for certain food or beverages that would need to be satisfied in a short period of time. It might be a nightmare running around a port you barely know and shopping for produce that is hard to find. Therefore, it is suggested that you always have contact details of a reputed yacht supplier, who can take care of any unexpected provisioning needs. With yacht guests, it is very important to get all their orders right as anything other than perfect execution of their demands is seen as a failure.
Once you have ordered food items make sure that they will be delivered to your yacht in refrigerated vans and in good time. There is nothing worse than waiting for a delivery, which arrives just as the guest does.
When it comes to sourcing fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and fish, find a reputable local yacht supplier to guarantee quality. Additionally, make sure that your yacht supplier delivers fruit and vegetables that have not been on shelves or in the heat. Some yacht provisioning companies go an extra mile to ensure the top quality of the produce they source and check individually each item of produce for bruising or damages.
Be careful to check with guests if they have any dietary requirements or need special ingredients such as kosher meat, for example. If you are not sure of where to find such ingredients, enlist the help of yacht provisioning experts, who can help source almost any item you may need to keep a yacht guest happy.
