Chef Sara Nelson
Chef Sara hails from the farmlands of North Dakota. Although her former years were spent on a landlocked farm, she spent the majority of her childhood summers at her family’s lake cabin in Northern Minnesota and fell completely in love with being on the water. Just 3 years ago she decided to turn her passion into reality and leave her career in sales to live an adventurous life at sea – trading in miles of pounding the pavement for miles of exploring the open ocean.
Sara has traveled all over Europe inspiring her new life as chef and first mate on many different yachts in Greece, Croatia, the Bahamas, and Italy (Sardinia & Corsica). Eventually she made her way to the beautiful crystal blue waters of the Virgin Islands. She’s so grateful for her travels and experiences around Europe, but is truly thrilled to call Tellstar and the Virgin Islands her new home.
Sara earned a Yacht Chef certificate from the Super Yacht Culinary Academy in Cape Town, South Africa. She loves cooking almost as much as she loves eating. Her farm roots inspire made from scratch recipes and her work ethic is demonstrated by her enthusiasm in the galley. She loves working with farmers on island to incorporate local produce as well as sourcing sustainably caught fish from local fisherman.
