Stewardess/Chef: Laura Fois, Italian, 25 y.o.
Laura is a very efficient stewardess and a particularly skilled chef.
Her strong social skills led her to pursue a career in Tourism, that’s why she decided to take her degree at the Hospitality training Institute, where she also developed cooking skills and followed a stage as a pastry-cook in a Sardinian bakery.
Then she started working in different positions and in different places: she was a coordinator in a tourist office, a bartender and a waitress in various pubs and restaurants in the UK, a shop assistant in Porto Rotondo and eventually, in 2015, a stewardess/chef on board a private yacht.
She’s very professional and discreet and her skills in patisserie and mixology allow her to really spoil her guests. Italian mother tongue, she speaks perfect English.
