Wiring exterior kitchen and deck lighting

Planning on running a new 20 amp circuit from my existing house panel to power my outside kitchen outlets and small (5 cf) fridge on my deck and some low voltage deck lighting. Couple of questions:
1. Do I need to run a separate circuit for the Kitchen (fridge) and lighting?
2. This is an above ground deck attached to the house so I plan on using UF wire from the basement (panel location) through the wall and along the beam of the deck to the kitchen location....no conduit, just water tight boxes? Is this satisfactory?

No.

Yes so long as it is under the deck. (The deck provides protection.) Where it comes out from under the deck it should be sleeved with PVC conduit to protect it.


I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Be careful as some places follow the definition of a kitchen as a sink and permanent food prep and cooking appliance regardless of inside or outside.
