Lunch aboard Greek Motor Yacht
Milos at Sea
The warm ocean breeze kissed our faces as we boarded MILOS AT SEA. Her name derives from the owner’s six Milos restaurants located in Athens, Montreal, New York, Miami, London, and Las Vegas. Every charter with MILOS AT SEA brings the Chef Periklis Panayotou’s fine dining selections to the table. Couple that with the incredible Mediterranean views, and you may never want to head back to land. My lunch aboard Greek motor yacht MILOS AT SEA…
Cruise with Milos at Sea
Today’s fare included three Greek wine selections from local vineyards, each carefully selected for their grape variety, serving temperature, and fermentation process. Two of the wines were produced from organically cultivated grapes, fermented by indigenous yeast for pure terroir expression.
Tomato Salad with extra virgin olive oil and barrel-aged feta. The bright yellowy gold hue of the oil revealed that it was virgin oil. The juicy tomato salad was spotted with olives and onions, a true tribute to Greek flavors. The olive oil and tangy feta cheese added richness to our first course.
Milos thin zucchini, eggplant, and lightly fried graviera cheese served with tzatziki. The zucchini and eggplant were delicious! I thoroughly enjoyed my fill of this course, as I am a plant-based eater. One of the highlights of a yacht charter is the customizable meal plans adaptable to any diet.
Platter with Raw Fish avgataracho, gavros, salmon, seabass, and crayfish. Other guests onboard spoke of the flavor, commenting on the freshness of the fish.
The Main Delight
Seabass in Sea Salt Crust baked in the oven, served with seasonal “Horta”. What an experience! The presentation alone had me wanting more. The seabass is expertly baked in sea salt for 20-30 minutes causing the sea salt to form a hard crust. Removing the crust and carving the fish was a delicate operation performed a tableside for all to see. The filet was tender and juicy and was absolutely the highlight of the lunch!
Homemade Ice Cream and Lemon Sorbet
You cannot go wrong with a delicious and light dessert. Sweet vanilla and cane sugar paired nicely in the homemade ice cream while the tartness of the fresh lemon zest in the sorbet cleansed our palates to prepare us for the final course.
Loukoumades with honey from Kythera and Walnuts. This traditional Greek dumpling was a sweet end to a perfect meal. The honey was light and the walnuts were wonderful.
My lunch aboard Greek motor yacht MILOS AT SEA was a seven-course meal that lasted about 2 ½ hours. It was generously accompanied by liberal pours of the suggested wines. Chef Periklis made his appearance at the end of lunch, greeted by a well-deserved round of applause.
