Furthermore, the British chef is the co-owner of two restaurants–Method Kitchen & Bar and Surfing Kitchen & Beach Bar–which are both located in France.

Dave White Partner
Talking about Dave White’s personal life, his relationship is largely unknown. On the show, he had intense chemistry with Chief Stew Natasha Webb. Natasha comes from a small town in West Yorkshire in the English countryside. She began yachting 10 years ago and did jobs on smaller motor yachts working her way up the ladder to Chief Stew on 100-plus meter superyachts.
Dave and Natasha even confirmed that they hooked up before working on the superyacht Home together. The head chef clarified that it was meant to be a secret because Natasha still had a boyfriend.
As of this writing, we don’t if they are still together. Unless one of them does not give any statement, it’s difficult to know if their relationship fizzled out to blossomed after their time on the show.
