Charter Yacht MIRA: New Chef

The charter yacht MIRA, a 70-foot Norlin/Sweden sloop, is pleased to introduce their delightful new chef, Athene Macrae. Athene, of British nationality, is most passionate about two things in life, culinary fare and the ocean, which makes her position on MIRA, the best of both worlds.

 Charter Yacht MIRA - Crewed Yacht Charters in the Caribbean & Eastern Mediterranean

Athene takes great pride in her ability to create healthy and exciting menus, taking inspiration from a wide variety of cuisines including Italian, French, Middle Eastern, Spanish, Indian and Asian.  She will use only the freshest ingredients available and sources organic produce wherever possible (and if you are lucky enough to be where the fish are biting, Athene will catch, prepare and serve them fresh from the Mediterranean to your dinner table!)
