Chef Matea: Matea was born and raised in Split, Croatia. She spent most of her childhood with her grandparents on island Brač, where her grandpa had a small family boat. He often took her on adventures and sea shell diving so Matea has been on and around boats from an early age. Matea's grandma had a cookies and cakes shop, and she was her first mate in the kitchen ever since she could walk and that’s when her love of cooking started growing. She graduated at University of Split, Faculty of Economics, and has an Entrepreneurship undergrad degree and masters degree in Marketing. After working as a CEO assistant in a small consulting company, Matea realized an office job isn’t something her heart desires so she went on to pursue her true passion for cooking full time.
Matea first started working within the charter industry at the age of 21, as a summer job. She quickly realized cooking and serving her guests is the job she enjoys the most! Watching her guests enjoy her food always puts a smile on her face. Matea will be sure to cook up healthy and hearty meals for all of her guests!
Captain Anders and chef Matea look forward to welcoming you aboard Dreamcatcher!
