Hi, my name is Jerry Lee Carmano and I am currently the head chef aboard the Belize Aggressor IV. I have always had a dream as a kid growing up to be a chef, to travel around the world and to be on the high seas. And here I am 27 years later living my dreams. My passion for cooking all started with grandma and my mom in the kitchen. I was always in there seeing and learning all the little secrets and the love of cooking. After I finished junior college, I decided it was time to follow my dreams and live them. In 1995 the opportunity came, and I started my dreams working as a steward for a company named Oceanwide Expeditions. I started there as a cabin/dining steward and after five years I was the chief steward/relieving chef. In 1999 I met the previous owners of the Aggressor Liveaboards, and they offered me a chef position of one of their yacht in the Silver Banks of the Dominican Republic. I have worked in Grand Turk, and Provo in the Turks and Caicos. I’ve worked out of Grand Bahama and the Great Exuma Islands in Bahamas. In the Bay Islands of Honduras, and here in Belize. In Belize I have spent my years working close to home. I have two favorite dishes; one is my pan seared snapper with Banana Salsa and Baked Pork Chops with Creamy Mushroom Sauce. So, I invite you all to come and join us in Belize for a great week of diving and dining. Happy Cooking!
