By: Chef Milton
Milton hails from the Honduras capitol city of Tegucigalpa. On finishing his High school Milton attended the culinary arts school of Honduras for 2 years before honing his skills at a couple of the city’s top end restaurants before moving to the USA to broaden his cooking Knowledge.
He enjoyed two years learning southern style cooking in New Orleans combining his Spanish creole style with the distinctive food from the deep south and a twang of Cajon thrown in.
Missing his home country, Milton relocated to the island of Roatan and was soux chef at the 2 top restaurants on the island specializing in fresh local seafood and farm to the table cuisine.
We are very lucky to have had Chef Milton onboard the Roatan Aggressor for the past 4 years and during our downtime through Covid Milton honed his baking skills by volunteering as a bread baker at the city’s largest bakery. Yum! Always smiling and willing to go the extra mile in creating well prepared exciting local & international meals onboard.
