Oceania Cruises launch new culinary experience
The meal consists of seven courses, using seasonal vegetables and is based on the concept of sharing a meal with family or friends. Each course is paired with wines that complement the dish, drawing on the history and flavours that one might have experienced during the mid-20th century.
The menu represents the textures and flavours of the period, and each course brings not only incredible flavours but is a visual feast as well, with dishes served from silver trays in the best traditions of the century.
The dining experience features dished enjoyed by Oceania Cruises’ Executive Culinary Director, Master Chef Jacques Pépin, and is limited to only 24 guests and reservations are required.
“Pairing the wines took particular care and required extensive research to ensure that the wines featured with each course reflected the bright, approachable and celebratory nature of this dining experience”, stated Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.
