I agree with Tim. On "who's really cooking," on board. Not "Prepared by Private Chef?"

Wordplay is the key here?

your crew bios don't really say that much about your cooking abilities or any credentials in that area (beyond Candace's experience as head cocktail waitress)
That right there. Is probably why you're getting this, "who cooks the food listed on your menu?" banter?

Hopefully, a little retyping will change all of that. Probably best writing it down on paper. And read it off to Candice. And then decide from there, Sean?

He is not a bicycle racer, or any kind of athlete that might feel the need to cut wind resistance.

What We Have, is a Failure to Communicate…

If I read carefully, knowing what I'm looking for, I can figure it out. But at first glance, one does wonder if you have a chef stowed away somewhere on board.

I'm sure if you gave a bit more info. on your cooking skills, and her cooking and catering, there would be an "Oh, I get it" on the part of the reader.

You promote the food, but not the hands that shop, chop, stew and braise. Maybe beef up your individual bios., or create a leader at the top of the "Sample Menu" page. Something that speaks to qualifications. To the public, "captain" and "first mate" carry fairly narrow pictures of job descriptions, which usually don't include training at the Cordon Bleu.


P.S.— top notch web design and overall usefulness.
