Chef / Hostess
Adriana, radiant and cheerful, is the chef / hostess of BLUE DEER. With an incredible eye for detail, she has sagely managed to unite the great passions of her life: cooking, traveling and sailing. Her first training ground was in the family restaurants, from which she learned not only culinary technique but also the secret of fusing tradition with modernity. She polished her skills at yacht clubs in Ischia, the island she calls home, as well as in Naples and Sardinia. All of these experiences have been enhanced by a passion for travel, out of which her new interpretations of the classic Mediterranean recipes she learned from her grandmother have emerged.
Maurilio is the steward of BLUE DEER. After completing his hospitality training in 2007, he furthered his chosen vocation at hotels and restaurants in Rimini, Siena, Forte dei Marmi and Les Deux Alpes. He has maintained a steadfast passion for sailing as well, working first as an instructor of windsurfing and sailing at Forte dei Marmi, Cagliari and Villasimius and then moving on to larger and larger boats, all the way up to Maxi 87 Fortuna Lights. Attentive and thoughtful, he is on hand to ensure that your experience aboard proves to be as magical as it is satisfying.
