Best Dish Overall
Khalila Bartley aboard Laurel Lee
At the Culinary Contest sponsored by Veuve Clicquot, recent graduate of the Ashburton Chef’s Academy, Khalila Bartley, took top prize. The eating habits of charter guests have changed dramatically since the early days of chartering.
Chefs must be able to accommodate the variety of lifestyle disciplines adopted by their guests. With that in mind, this year’s theme was “Discover Plants: Eat Vegan”.
