Upon graduation she worked for two years as an Environmental Engineer at a consulting firm before trading in her hard hat and steel-toed boots for flip flops and sunnies.

Shannon Sanderson | Chef
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Shannon spent most of her life working in the hospitality and tourism industries on the New England coastal island of Martha’s Vineyard. Shannon’s grandmother spent 30 years working as a private chef and doing day sails down in Jamaica before she decided to call Martha’s Vineyard home in the early 70’s. At an early age, Shannon started following in her grandmother’s footsteps, spending summers cooking breakfast for guests of a family-friend’s bed & breakfast in their small town of Aquinnah. She then began to focus further on food service by working in front of the house operations in busy restaurants doing everything from bartending to waiting tables. However, her boss could never keep her out of the kitchen. One day, while working as a waitress, the head chef approached her and said, “You’re always in the kitchen. If you would rather work back here, just ask, and I will teach you everything you need to know.” So, that’s what she did! Through this restaurant experience Shannon discovered her true passion was in the kitchens of these fine restaurants where she continued to apprentice under several great chefs. Shannon soon turned this experience into her career and learned that she could combine her love of travel and cooking, by working as a chef on board yachts. She started as a stewardess & crew chef on large motor yachts, always pushing her way deeper into the galley, absorbing as much as possible. Now, Shannon has spent 3 years as a full-time yacht chef, traveling the world. Her smallest boat was a 45 foot Catamaran, and the largest has been an 80m mega yacht.
After her first job on a large sailing yacht- she realized she had more than just a passion for cooking & for the sea, but also for sailing. With a few Caribbean seasons and an Atlantic crossing under her belt - she set out to sail across the Pacific Ocean as the chef on a 37m sailing yacht. Starting from Antigua, and ending in Australia, she spent a season in French Polynesia which will forever have a huge space in her heart. While here she was taught to make their local tuna ceviche, called Poisson Cru, made with fresh coconut milk, a favorite of hers to this day. Shannon’s favorite cuisine to make is Italian and she recently studied authentic Italian cuisine in Italy.
In her free time, she’s learning to speak Italian. Her next culinary adventure is to perfect her Asian cuisine by doing a course specialized for yacht chefs in Thailand. She hopes to one day own a restaurant somewhere tropical that features local dishes from the places she’s traveled to.
