Recipes by Odyssey Explorer's Head Cook:

Genny J. Malacad

My name is Genny J. Malacad and I am the head cook on the Odyssey Explorer. I plan and prepare all of the meals for the Odyssey's hungry crew. I am 30 years old and was born in Mindanao, Phillipines, where my lovely wife Benmarie gave birth on February 14, 2009 to our first child, a beautiful baby girl.

The menu below features some of the recipes I prepare aboard the ship which I am delighted to share with you.
