Mia grew up on the water in Sydney’s Northern Beaches cruising on her family’s yachts in the majestic Pittwater harbor. She has absolutely fallen in love with the sailing charter lifestyle as it brings all her passions together; cooking, traveling and the water.
After studying marketing and working in a corporate job in Sydney for 5 years she decided to pursue her passion of working on a yacht as a professional chef. Two and half years later she is still living her wildest dreams after cooking aboard yachts in Croatia, Greece, Montenegro, Italy, France, the BVI, St Maarten & surrounds.
While her cooking repertoire is broad; she loves to cook fresh and healthy dishes incorporating local delicacies with the freshest produce. She loves the craft of putting tastes, textures and aromas together and believes that good food creates wonderful experiences that bring people together.
Growing up in a large family cooking and baking for large groups was a daily occurrence and led her to studying hospitality at school and working in cafés that have provided her the fundamentals of cooking. She has been developing her skills and she learns more every time she creates a new dish.
She is enthusiastic, sociable, and a positive person and loves bringing people together to share delicious food.
