Welcome To Jimmy T’s Yacht Provisions!
Open now dockside at the Los Suenos Marina at Playa Herradura, Jimmy T’s Provisions and Gourmet Foods offer a wide variety of imported and local food stuffs for the most discerning chef or the ambitious land-locked amateur Cook.
Jimmy T’s offers a wide variety of American food stuffs such as Buckhead Beef from Atlanta, Georgia. Jimmy T’s also offers organic produce and a wide variety of cheeses, local and imported, a wide range of marinades, Asian specialties and Italian products in addition to spices and condiments necessary to stock a gourmet kitchen or galley.
In addition to offering a well stocked gourmet store complete with deli, Jimmy T’s offers a wide range of ready-to-go cheese, cold cuts and vegetable platters for the busy host or hostess. Jimmy has recently added concierge and chef services for those who come to Costa Rica to vacation, not to cook. The concierge services include both shopping and stocking the refrigerator in the clients home or condo while the chef service provides a three meal a day prix fixe menu for those clents for the duration of their vacation.
Owner Jimmy Tancrell, as a former chef on a megayacht, often had difficulty finding local suppliers who could provide the foodstuffs and condiments necessary for the gourmet meals expected by his clients. During long days at sea under star-filled skys, the crew and staff would talk about their dreams of ‘life after yachting’. And for Jimmy Tancrell a dream was born … to provide a service for other ‘yachty’ chefs who were in the same boat as Jimmy so far as the need for adequetely stocking their galleys with condiments, spices, good beef, fresh vegetables, fruits and cheeses.
Life after yachting led him to Los Suenos at Herradura on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast where Jimmy had already discovered the year ’round availability of wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables offered on Fridays at Jaco’s Mercado Movil or farmers market. A store became available dockside at Los Suenos and Jimmy T’s Provisions and Gourmet foods opened in May 2007.
