Below Deck Mediterranean chief stew Hannah Ferrier knows it's very much a part of her job to deliver impeccable service to yacht charter guests... even if their requests seem completely bonkers. And she managed to make that happen when she read what she described as the craziest food request she ever saw on a guest's preference sheet.
"Probably the craziest thing — I had [a preference sheet of a guest and] literally the woman only ate berries," Hannah told The Feast at Bravo HQ in Los Angeles. "So all food was basically eliminated. "But I would still do like a three-course meal, but different berries for each course."
Sure, Hannah made it a point to deliver the request with a smile — and a straight face. But that doesn't mean she can't have an internal monologue on the matter.
"I think she needs to go under a microscope and be studied," Hannah told us. "That was weird."
In the end, she said, "You just pretend like it’s completely normal. It's like hearing the most ridiculous thing ever and you’re just like, 'Oh, yeah of course. I deal with that all the time! In fact I only eat berries myself for four weeks a year.' You’ve gotta make them feel like it’s normal when it’s not."
