COOKING UP A STORM ON BOARD DENIKI

DENIKI 
LOA - 52.3m (171.6ft) / BUILT - Amels, The Netherlands, 2007 /
GUESTS - 10 / CREW - 12

HEAD CHEFS GARETH ALDER and BEN HARVEY (in rotation)
EXPERIENCE   Both these energetic young chefs have Michelin-starred restaurant experience and deliver exceptional dishes, beautifully presented with all the attention to detail and quality you’d expect from a world-class kitchen.  Gareth’s British training and European travels have made him a perfectionist, while Ben’s background (born in Australia, raised in South Africa, trained in London) gives him a passion for international and fusion cuisine.

Q How did the two of you arrive in your current roles?

BH I had been working at the famous Pied à Terre in London, and decided to take some time off to go snowboarding. While in Chamonix, I heard about the opportunities for chefs in yachting. I’ve been on board Deniki for five years.

GA Also via snowboarding! I was working as senior sous chef at a boutique hotel in the Alps before I joined Deniki in 2012.

Q What type of cuisine or dish do you enjoy preparing?

GA I am a perfectionist, and I have a passion for the finest ingredients, whatever style of dish I’m preparing.

BH I really like contrasts of colour, taste and texture, for example. Basil seeds add crunch to a roasted pineapple carpaccio; I’ll put chives, truffle and honey together with beef, or seared scallops with bright yellow fennel confit…

Q What would you choose for your last supper?

BH It would have to be a Braai [South African barbecue] with my family and friends. Or homemade lasagne, as prepared by my mother.

GA Simple, super-fresh seafood such as grilled langoustines or a whole mackerel en papillote.
