Margot Laurent – Chef SW105 Sorvind
Margot, you are a young and talented chef with good sailing skills too. You have been on board SW105 Sørvind from the delivery in Cape Town in April 2022 all way through the intense summer cruising and charter season in Med. Like other creatives, each chef has a unique vision for food. What is your cooking style for charter guests?
I do what every chef would do, and all of the guests that we had were happy as soon as I started working my magic and wowing them. I was lucky, I guess. Some of the guests that we had last summer had more sophisticated tastes, some more classic, but pretty much everybody agreed on my cooking.
How useful are the Charter Guests Preference Sheets in helping you to organize the menus?
It really helped me that the brokers went over the Preference Sheet so carefully with the charter guests before they arrived. I had also had in depth phone calls with each of the principle charterers so that I could directly discover the unique preferences and expectations of each party. That played a major part in helping me provision and be prepared as best as I possibly could for the upcoming charter.
