Chefs on Board: Alessandro Pavoni from a’Mare

The cure for whatever ails you is said to be saltwater. So, is it any wonder cruising Sydney Harbour aboard one of the country’s finest charter yachts – enjoying scintillating conversation, superb cuisine and the scenery the city is famous for – fills our happiness cup to overflowing?

On a buoyant blue-sky Monday, a day charter aboard the 33-metre M/Y Mohasuwei for a business-meets-pleasure luncheon is the quintessential Sydney experience and eminently appropriate for discussing the threats facing our oceans. It’s a weighty subject, fraught with urgent warnings, dire predictions, competing interests and, in many cases, crisis fatigue.

But, sharing a roundtable discussion with some of the creative minds behind the Sapphire Project, a platform for Australian philanthropists to support ocean conservation while savouring morsels by one of Australia’s most inspired chefs Alessandro Pavoni from a’Mare at Crown Sydney, is a sure cure for apathy and a reason to be optimistic.

Our luncheon party included Sapphire Project committee members and supporters, such as Ryan Gollan, entrepreneur and founder of the Sapphire Project; Ian Thorpe, Olympian and Sapphire Project committee member; Luke Hepworth, adventure philanthropist; Woollahra Mayor and Councillor Susan Wynne; Matt Suleau, Fox Sports and Sky News presenter; journalist and commentator Deborah Clay; and from Ocean Media, Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief Hillary Buckman and Contributing Editor, Jeni Bone. 

The full Chefs on Board feature, including recipes, appears in the current issue of Ocean magazine #108.
