Meet the Chef
Chef Peter Ziegelmeier is a robust character coming from a large German-Italian family born in Long Island, NY.  His unmatched passion for cooking and cuisine and his love of the ocean has led him to the yachting industry. Shortly after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, the chef was off to begin his adventures upon the high seas and headed to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. 

 Prior to the world of yachting the chef has had a whirlwind career in corporate, mom and pop, country club, and casino cuisine cultures. The chef, also an avid photographer has 

taken all the delightful color photos that you will peruse whilst beginning your new culinary adventures with his new book, Chef Peter Ziegelmeier’s Dreams of A Yacht Chef – Food For Thought. The book allows your inner chef to come out and play by supplying a playground for inspiration and creativity. A journal style approach to your soon to be family heirloom, his new book will inspire your passion for cooking to emerge again and again.


Support the Cause
Student chefs who attend the ARC Broward Culinary Institute are offered real-
