Yawn reacted on Twitter, expressing that she was unhappy to listen to this from a chef she’s supported via the years. “Yep…was sad to hear that from Adam,” Yawn tweeted in response to a viewer’s remark. “He got 2 seasons on #BelowDeckMed, one of which was a redemption season. Hope he learned from his BDM experience and brought something special to #BelowDeckSailing. Thanks for your support of BDM!”

Captain Sandy explains why she is a bit more hands-on

The fan expressed that Yawn gave the impression to be extra concerned in meal preparation on the yacht than some other captain. Unfortunately this season, Yawn obtained a foul chef from the start. She changed the chef by giving the third stew a shot within the kitchen. But when the third stew expressed that she was having an excessive amount of nervousness, Yawn employed chef Ben Robinson to complete off the season.

She additionally has a historical past with Glick too. He sabotaged a visitor’s meals by including onions to dishes when the visitor shared on his desire sheet that he didn’t like onions. Rather than firing Glick, Yawn let him end the season. Plus she employed him once more and he redeemed himself within the kitchen.

So when a fan identified she was fairly hands-on she had the perfect response. “Appreciate the feedback,” she replied. “As Capts, we have to make sure the charter guests get the best service. If we don’t test things out, we don’t know where to make improvements. We are in the service industry at its highest level. We don’t want to disappoint the clients. Quality Control!”

It’s all about maximizing the visitor expertise

Another fan requested concerning the tablescapes and why stews have to embellish since that doesn’t happen in high-end eating places. “Tablescapes and theme parties are a big part of the superyacht experience. There are worldwide competitions that showcase creativity, fantasy, imagination and presentation. It’s next level private party and fine dining,” Yawn defined.

The fan tagged chief stew Kate Chastain from Below Deck within the Twitter query about tablescapes. Of course, the change ended with snark from the fan and Chastain. “What were the tablescapes like on all of the yachts you’ve vacationed on Monty? Do you have any pictures of those tablescapes from your yacht vacations you can show me? I’m so interested and curious,” she shot again.

But the fan (who’s clearly not a fan of Chastain’s) dug into the chief stew. “Dear Kate, yachting is not the only way to travel and see the world. Trying to belittle me for not yachting when you’re only the help is childish. Below Deck has shown you don’t take criticism well. So your centrepieces are tacky, big deal!You sculpt a mean d**k towel. Bisous.”
