Grace Dvornik is a freelance yacht chef from Clearwater Beach, Florida. Growing up cooking in her grandparent’s kitchen, she draws inspiration from old family recipes and describes her culinary style as “upscale, down-home cooking.” Grace strives to cater specifically to her client’s dietary requests and recreate their favorite meals with a personal flare in order to serve food that is meaningful or tells a story.

As a yacht chef, Grace has freelanced on private and charter yachts ranging from 64-130ft. throughout the Caribbean and East Coast USA. She has also worked as a personal chef and sous chef on private estates in New England and Florida, private islands in the Bahamas, and a 15,000 acre cattle ranch in Wyoming. Grace has had the privilege to work for an array of high profile clientele including innovators in technology, former U.S. politicians and Middle Eastern royalty.

Grace has professional training and certifications from George Brown Chef School (Toronto, ON) and Ashburton Chefs Academy (Devon, UK). When not traveling for work, Grace is based in Clearwater, FL, where she enjoys scuba diving and testing new recipes to share with family and friends.
