Pelican’s chef, York Dunbar, graduated with a Grande Diploma from the prestigious Silwood School of Cookery in Cape Town, South Africa. Armed with the culinary knowledge of this world-class institution, he worked at various fine dining establishments – most notably Luke Dale Roberts’ Pot Luck Club and The Test Kitchen – both synonymous with the most innovative food in South Africa.
York’s time aboard the Pelican allows him to bring a new sense of adventure to his food – thanks to fresh and exciting tropical ingredients, and the truly magnificent environment in which he gets to cook them. Passionate about sustainability, York loves building relationships with local farmers and producers on the islands to ensure only the very best seasonal ingredients. Exploring the fusion of different cultures and cuisines, York’s refined take on farm-to-table cooking has all the excitement of unknown flavours, whilst simultaneously making you feel wonderfully at home.
