Chef Katie: Katie is NexGen’s newest culinary procurement. She comes to us from a bustling student town in southern Ontario, Canada. It was here that her love for all things food and cooking originated. In the heart of her Nan’s kitchen when wobbly feet and curious fingers were her only tools. From weekend’s canning the garden harvest’s to festive meals with loved ones, an emotional bond with food had bloomed early for her. After completing high school, it was a natural and easy decision to find a culinary institute to hone these basic skills further. Graduating from the Stratford Chef’s School in 2015, this saw Katie’s skill and practical experience flourish. Seasonal private chef work became her focus, which worked harmoniously alongside of her newfound love of travel of adventure. After a summer gig at a private hunting lodge in Upstate New York, a break was needed to recharge. She trekked through Southeast Asia solo for a couple months, and explored parts of Europe and Mexico as well. These fond bouts of adventure are now seen throughout most of her meal offerings. Katie chose to make the world of yachting her new home in 2021, where she spent her first season in the Caribbean on an 80 ft motor yacht in the Bahamas, USVIs and BVIs. Katie hopes she can delight all who join on Adea, through tasty food and beverage offerings in some of the most picturesque places the world has to offer.
