We are excited to launch the “Penum Yacht Chef Mentor Program”. The goal of this informal program is to connect established Yachting Head Chefs with: Crew Chefs, Second Chefs, Sole Chefs, Junior Chefs, Sous Chefs – all aspiring young Yacht Chefs.

At Penum, we feel lucky to be supplying yacht provisions to talented and experienced Head Chefs, that are happy to give back to the industry.

What can you expect in the 'Penum Yacht Chef Mentor Program'

Mentee: The benefit for the Mentee, is to gain a buddy, that’s made it, in the Yacht Chef industry. Be connected by email, and gain a contact to ask advice on “stepping up to Head Chef”, constructive menu critiques, general galley questions etc.

Mentor:  The benefits of mentoring are many! Share your knowledge and help your buddy avoid those mistakes you made early on in your Yacht Chef career. Volunteering is a fantastic way to show your ability to lead and help others, above and beyond your immediate work environment.  By sharing your knowledge, you are assisting a junior chef along their yachting journey. The time you can spare in mentoring is completely at your discretion.


If you are interested in applying as a mentee, or;
If you are already a Head Chef, and are interested in mentoring,
Please contact Ellie Barker via 'Contact Author' below or by email:

Please include in your email: a few details about yourself, your current position, and why you would like to be in the program.  We have limited places available at the moment, but are hopeful to expand and grow the program after this first phase.

This goodwill program has no cost, or contracts, just connecting those with knowledge, with those wanting to move on up. Enthusiastic and positive young Chefs please apply!
