James Beard House to Serve Dinner Prepared by Celebrity Cruises Chefs

The James Beard House will be host to Celebrity Cruises chefs, including Jacques Van Staden and John Suley, for a dinner taking place on April 5, 2012. Van Staden and Suley have shaped a six-course menu, with Celebrity’s in-house sommelier and beverage programming expert, Chanelle Duarte, developing the wine selections to complement each course.

The dinner marks the second time that Van Staden, Celebrity’s VP of Culinary Operations, has cooked at the James Beard House and the third time that Suley, Director of Culinary Operations, has done so, in roles held before they joined Celebrity. Duarte curated the wine selections for one of Suley’s previous James Beard House dinners.

Both chefs will be part of Celebrity’s Excite the Senses culinary-themed cruise sailing on the Celebrity Eclipse from Miami on March 24, 2012.
