Chef Shailen Sewlall hails from the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, and it was there that he completed his professional training at the Hotel School of Mauritius. Shailens career has taken him to several top hotels throughout the region including the Lemuria Resort, Seychelles Islands. He worked there as Sous Chef under Robert Lalleman, a third generation French chef. Lalleman was acclaimed as one of the top seven chefs of Provence for his inspired cuisine at LAuberge de Noves in Avignon. In 2004, Shailen decided to leave terra firma behind and joined the cruise ship Pearl of Seychelles as Head Chef. After a very successful year there, he came to join DOUCE FRANCE. As one would expect of a chef who comes from an island paradise, Shailen specializes in fresh seafood - usually caught from the yacht that day! He also lists fusion, a tantalizing blend of French and Creole cooking from his native Mauritius as a specialty. Shailen's cuisine receives rave reviews from all guests on board DOUCE FRANCE.
