I am Chef Amina Ly. I was born in Senegal.

I moved to Europe, where I pursued the Culinary Arts. I spent my youth working across the French and Italy, in different restaurants as a hostess, eventually moving into the kitchen. 

After years of training at top Culinary Schools, I decided to take to the sea, working on a yacht. For years, I was the yacht chef learning the creative flexibility needed to provide fresh high quality meals while moving across oceans.

In those times, not on the water, I enjoyed cooking at the Monaco Grand Prix - including the honor of cooking for the Prince of Monaco. I’ve had the pleasure of cooking for royalty, now it is my great pleasure to cook for you.

Please come and say hello.

my husband matteo and I have a dream - and you are in it.
