Kristyna grew up on the move traveling with her parents and living in Thailand and the Canary Islands on their sailing boat. Later she came back to her homeland, the Czech Republic, where she studied and after graduating, she decided to continue traveling and left for Colombia and later to Panama, where she started working on various charter boats and yachts as a chef and stew. Before joining Sayang, she was a crew member on a sailing boat, travelling from Panama to French Polynesia. “Travelling is about knowing and exploring local culture and local cuisine”, says Kristyna. She likes to try and combine local recipes she has come across, while adding her own ideas and techniques she has learnt. She enjoys preparing meals from local fresh produce, especially seafood and fish.
“Being a chef on Sayang and other yachts combines my passion for the ocean and good food, which I am looking forward to share with our clients”
