Chef Sophie L. Bardon
Sophie has been cooking most of her life. From a young age she helped her aunt who arranged private functions, from cocktail parties to weddings for over 200 people. She continued to work in this area, including a few small restaurants, until she decided to go to sea.
She attended a Rosie Davies cooking course in the south of England. She also completed a 2 week Thai gourmet course, as well as some classes in fruit carving.
Sophie has been sailing since she was very young on small boats and Hoby Cats. She worked for one year as stewardess aboard SY Capercaillie, then spent the next three years as chef aboard the same vessel. She has completed several crossings on other sailing vessels, one a three-masted schooner, and gained a lot of knowledge of cooking at sea.
Having grown up in Mallorca, Sophie’s specialties are mainly Mediterranean in style. She has also worked for Italian owners thereby perfecting her Italian cuisine. Thai is a specialty that she loves to create, with its wonderful varying flavors. Desserts are a special love, as she enjoys the time and patience they take and has a developed a great flare in presentation.
When you sail aboard ICARUS, your appetite will be satisfied by a variety of delicious food, prepared by an experienced, imaginative chef.
