Cooking demonstrations

windstar cruises cuisine

Sea, sails and seasonal ingredients

Windstar Cruises, the official cruise line of the prestigious James Beard foundation, knows a thing or two about good food. That’s why it appointed chef Graeme Cockburn to oversee its culinary experiences in March this year. An innovator affiliated with the crème de la crème of cuisine (The Gleneagles Hotel, Scotland, Boodles, London; the Pompadour Restaurant, Edinburgh; training under Michel Roux), Cockburn has been developing port-to-port gastronomic experiences, including local market tours, that focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients, and the stories of local sellers, as a portal into the culture of destination guests have docked in.

The Phang factor

Celebrity chef Jonathan Phang, who presents Jonathan Phang’s Gourmet Trains on the Travel Channel, is always after new flavours. We can’t wait for his Caribbean-fusion showcase at the Festival!

“In Chile, I discovered I never want to eat guinea pig again, but fell in love with the carefully balanced flavours of ceviche. Southeast Asia always inspires me; Peranakan food is definitely the next big thing; a great mix of Chinese, Malay and Indonesian cuisine. Macanese food was a huge surprise too, with its blend of herbs and spices from around the world. From dosas and uttapams with green chilli prawns in New Delhi to stone crabs on Miami Beach, I’m inspired by everything I eat, wherever I go.”
