Chef Christina M. Astuto - Starting November 1st, 2021

QUALIFICATION
● STCW 95/10, Basic Safety Training
● Food and Hygiene Level II
● First Aid/CPR
● TABC Certification

A true New Yorker born and raised in Staten Island from two parents who grew up in Brooklyn, Christina prides herself on her personality and respectful family values. She believes this is what has shaped her personality which has been the foundation for her life. As an Italian American, food has always been an important part of her life. She believes there is no better way to spread love than with a home cooked meal, some great wine, and really good company.

After graduating with a Masters Degree in Special Education, Christina worked as a preschool teacher in the greater New York area for over 5 years. It wasn’t until she took a trip to South Africa to teach English did she realize that her passion for travel, culture, and exploration exceeded her expectations. It was then that she realized she was settling for a comfortable life which she was good at, but ultimately it did not feed her soul. Unexpected events, call it serendipitous or not, have brought her to the sea and she could not have been more grateful. Prior to her 3 seasons in the Virgin Islands, she has worked two and a half seasons as a chef & hostess in destinations such as Greece, Croatia, Sardinia, and Montenegro. She has worked on a variety of different sailboats which allowed her to really grow her passion for sailing.

As a chef Christina likes to keep her meals as healthy and tasty as possible. To her, flavor is most important and shouldn’t be compromised. Christina likes to cook with the best local ingredients she can find, and believes freshness is key. Her cuisine is very eclectic and she uses a variety of flavors, spices, and herbs. Although she does like to treat people with her Italian specialities, from time to time! Christina believes people should have a cultural culinary experience when they are eating. She wants you to remember your sailing experience from that moment you see the breathtaking morning sunrise over the horizon to the smell of roasted chicken coming fresh out of the boat’s oven. She truly believes that sailing is an experience for your senses and she’s fully on board to give the best experience she possibly can.
