For gourmet lovers, FLYING FOX offers a one-of-a-kind dining experience that is not to be missed. From sunset sushi with family and friends overlooking the French Riviera to freshly caught lobster on the grill whilst out in the Caribbean Sea; this gastronomic charter takes you on a wonderful journey! This experience will be a food lover’s paradise. The chefs make the most out of local delicacies and use the freshest ingredients. Whether this may be the rarest truffle mushrooms or the finest caviar, rest assured that everything used is only of the best quality.
Unlike other superyachts, FLYING FOX chefs have the option to cook with fire. Thanks to strict safety measures and careful procedures, this is made possible. Cooking on coal adds an unmatched dimension to food, as real foodies out there can testify! Guests can enjoy any kind of cuisine, thanks to its remarkable cooking stations. FLYING FOX boasts state-of-the-art appliances to satisfy the taste buds of all guests on-board.
The world-famous Josper grill is a coal-powered Spanish grill, used for grilling and roasting meats, fish and vegetables. As the Josper is a hybrid grill and oven, the Chef on-board will enhance the flavours of your meal with charcoal flavour and a charred texture, but control the oven temperature to preserve the succulence. In addition, a bread stone has been fitted for cooking delicious pizzas and focaccia.
A traditional Indian oven, Tandoor, fuelled by coal for that authentic taste, has also been installed. Perfect for making naan bread to accompany an Indian-themed dinner. The flatbreads are placed against the sides of the oven whilst the meats are placed on long skewer which are inserted into or on top of the oven.
Furthermore, guests will find a coal-powered wok used for specific Asian menus, such as stir fry dishes or delicious Pad Thai. The high walls of the wok allow the food to be tossed more easily, meaning the heat will be evenly distributed and ingredients mixed.
A full-sized rotisserie, capable of cooking a whole lamb or chicken, is also provided. The rotation of the meat bastes it internally and externally, resulting in an impeccable and succulent dish where the skin of the meat is crisp and charred and the inside is tender.
Last but not least, FLYING FOX has its own traditional Brazilian rotisserie called Churrasco. Here, a variety of meats are cooked on rotating skewers – the most famous being the delightful picanha steak. The chosen meat is placed on a skewer and cooked over an open fire. This Brazilian style is an exotic form of grilling meats.
Guests on-board will be spoilt for dining options – there will be no need to eat out on shore. With so many choices, entertaining guests is a remarkable experience. Let the crew know about any themed dinners you may desire and they will be happy to assist. FLYING FOX’s sumptuous seating on the aft bridge deck creates an elegant and comfortable dining experience. Guests are able to shut both sides with sliding glass windbreakers on those chilly nights. The formal dining table is well protected under the upper deck and can seat up to 24 people as well as seating at the counter for interactive dinners and live cooking with the chefs.
