Culinary Cruising: Shopping with the Chef!

See also

No longer is it just an option to get on a cruise and make your way to the buffet, fill up on the goodies and slumber beside the pool. Too many cruisers want the full experience and for foodies, that means making the meal HAPPEN. Cruise lines are taking the meal experience to a new level by setting up shopping experiences with the chef. On these journeys they assist cruisers with gaining knowledge on picking out new and different foods in other ports of call.

Some cruise lines foodies can experience this adventure are:

Windstar Cruises
Will guide the guests around local markets with the chef discussing the specialties and the regional cooking techniques of the locals.

Seabourn Cruise Line
When you shop with the chef, you may enjoy a glass of wine or some cheese samplings while the chef picks out fresh fish from local vendors. Then you get to return to the ship and enjoy the meal exactly as you selected from the market.
