Length34.1m (111'1) Guests 8Cruising areaCaribbean Prices fromUS$40,000 per week Being a superyacht chef is a 24/7 job for Peter Göppel. "I'm usually up at six in the morning,"he explains. "Those quiet hours are when I begin to prepare breakfast, visit the local marketsfor fresh food and work on menu-planning for the day. From eight until 12 it is all go. I have theguests' breakfast to serve and at the same time I start to prepare the crew's lunch. I'll then nipout on deck to chat with the guests about their food for the day before I head back to serve the crewwith one hand while preparing the guests' dishes with the other. Midday to three is all aboutserving up the guests' lunch, and from then until six o'clock I organise the crew's dinner, chat with theguests about their dinner, serve the crew, then start the guests' food. The final six hours of the day area balancing act of serving the guests' dinner, planning meals for the next day, writing shopping lists,ordering supplies, stock control and cleaning. I'd like to say I then get six hours deep sleep, but to behonest you're always on standby on a superyacht."A consummate professional, Göppel has been maintaining this hectic schedule for about five years,having previously worked on C'est la Vie, Opus II and 5 Fishes, before which he trained in restaurantsall over Europe for a decade. Göppel's culinary icons are perhaps the best indication of what you might expect cuisine-wise as acharter guest on board the 62m (203') RoMa. He lists Austrian chef Eckart Witzigmann, who is thefirst German-speaking chef to receive three Michelin stars for his Munich restaurant Aubergine;the two-Michelin starred chef Hans Haas, who also hails from Austria; and the UK's three-Michelinstarred creative phenomenon Heston Blumenthal, who is famed for his experimental cuisine and FatDuck restaurant in Berkshire. Göppel's own style reflects his Bavarian background and the Mediterranean influences he has sincebeen exposed to. While he is not a fan of fusion in the sense of mixing two styles within one dish, he isnot averse to serving his guests an Asian starter followed by a Mediterranean main course. "I would describe it as being a healthy crossover of Mediterranean, Asian, Caribbean andFrench cuisine," he says of his culinary style, which is greatly influenced by his way of life. Travellingso extensively on a superyacht, he has had exceptional opportunities to visit remote corners of theworld and experience first hand the gourmet treats and techniques of many regions."I always read the cookbooks of areas in which I'm travelling, and I visit the local marketsto get inspiration. I also keep in touch with restaurants I've worked for and exchange ideaswith former colleagues. And I love to visit restaurants in the areas in which we cruise. My favouriterestaurant in the world is Auberge Provençale in Cannes, France. It opened in 1860, makingit the oldest restaurant in Cannes, and the service and food are outstanding."Clearly a chef who embraces a challenge, Göppel suggests that as well as dealing with a hectic workschedule, remaining creative and cooking to suit a variety of tastes and requirements, another ever-morecrucial consideration is the need to provide healthy food for his guests. "Cuisine has become much lightersince I first started training. Now the focus is very much more on locally bought, fresh ingredients -ensuring that meals are nutritious as well as delicious is more important than ever."24Isea&iIWINTER 2012Taste notes with.Peter GöppelChef Peter Göppel describes his typical day on board the 62m (203') RoMa, andoutlines his inspirations for creative cuisine[]charter cuisinePhotography: Jeff BrowngourmetgossipLOBSTER MILLEFEUILLE WITH CAPSICUM PESTOServes 4INGREDIENTSfor the lobster. 2 medium-sized lobsters . 50g (1.7oz) butter. 1 sachet of bouquet garni.

Its Bosphorus is calming,its bazaars chaotic; its Ottoman and Byzantine décoraesthetically enriching and its food equally tantalising. Domesand minarets spiral up around every street corner behind a veilof mystical hookah smoke, and bazaars are a sensory overloadof volume, vibe and visual flamboyance with incense, spices andsmoke swirling together in an intoxicating concoction. Divide your time between ancient mosques and edgy streetcafés, linger in Prada boutiques and speed across theBosphorus. In the evening, swallow your reservations and diginto the mouthwatering contents of a döner, burrah, iskenderor shisk, for although the kebab might wallow at the bottomof the food chain elsewhere in the world, in Turkey it is not-to-be-missed fare. Restaurants and hotels range from traditional and quaint toultra modern and extravagant. In both types of venue, stylehas become a watchword, with minimalist principles flirtingwith the flamboyance of the country's incredible history. Thisis a city that truly triumphs in celebrating the best of east andwest, ancient and modern. PILLOW TALKFor boutique offerings, three hotels in particular stand out. A'jiaHotelis a traditional Ottoman mansion resplendent onthe edge of the Bosphorus. There are just 16 rooms andpure white glamour reigns inside and out. A complimentaryboat shuttle is available for trips to nearby attractions, of whichthere are many.Alternatively, The House Hotel Galatasaray, which openeda little over 18 months ago, is set in a four-storey mansiondatingback to the 1890s. Renovated by interior designerAutoban, it has 20 suites and a lounge and bar and reflectsboth vintage and modern with original marble staircases,fabulous leather sofas and roaring wood fires - everywhereyou glance is pure style. Also sporting Autoban inspirationis The House Hotel Nisantasi,near the Blue Mosque andGrand Bazaar and in the heart of the city's most exclusivedistrict for shopping, fashion and entertainment. A designconnoisseur's dream, it is full of earthy colours and white,with lots of welcoming curves and sleek Venetian blinds.There are 45 rooms and suites, with one of the nice touchesbeing the cocktail accessories that are provided so that youcan get creative with a shaker and spirits - one up on theusual hotel mini bar. istanbulArching from Europe to Asia, Istanbul is the only city in theworld to straddle two continents.
