MasterChef Professional winner Rhys Badcock has said that he counted the support of his fellow crew members on board the luxury vessel Kimberley Quest as a vital strength throughout the popular culinary marathon. Rhys has been Chef for the 25 metre, 18 passenger cruiser for multiple seasons.
“The Kimberley Quest is family owned, and the skipper Ben Bonnett and the crew are like family to me. And the northern coast of Western Australia is a dream place to work and experience.”
“The Kimberley region where we explore on each voyage is a cornucopia – I cook fresh barramundi, crabs, oysters, Mangrove Jack – all fabulous stuff. I really enjoy that passengers love coming into our open galley to watch me cooking, and we’ve done a couple of cooking classes on board already.”
“We are talking about doing more – my dream would be to have Marco Pierre White join me on board – he is my most revered role model, closely followed by Cape Lodge’s Tony Howell, with whom I have worked earlier in my career.”
“One of the highlights of this year’s cruise season for me is that Nathan Brindle joins us as alternate chef. Nathan and I became very close whilst contestants on MasterChef and his cooking has a huge intelligence.”
Kimberley Quest begins its 2013 season on 26th March and looks forward to Rhys returning and welcoming Nathan on board.
