Oceania Cruises is adding some extra culinary offerings to sailings this European season with new classes in the Bon Appétit Culinary Centers onboard Marina and Riviera and with two new Culinary Discovery Tours ashore.
New classes being offered on select Marina and Riviera sailings this season include:
- Healthy Greek: In this class, guests will learn cooking techniques that transform seasonal ingredients into fresh, healthy and flavorful dishes.
- Turkish Arabesque: In this class, guests will learn about the palace kitchens, ingredients and culinary traditions of the Ottoman Empire while learning recipes for local delicacies.
- Beyond Ratatouille: Inspired by Culinary Discovery Tours in Marseille and Nice, this class focuses on the cuisine of Provence. The class highlights favorite dishes of Oceania Cruises’ own Jacques Pépin as well as Guy Gedda.
- Modern Nordic: The dishes of Nordic restaurants like Noma and Geranium have changed the way the world views Nordic cuisine. Inspired by destinations along the Baltic Sea, this class is devoted to favorite regional recipes ranging from meat dishes to desserts.
In addition, Oceania Cruises is introducing two new Culinary Discovery Tours for Cork, Ireland, and Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
In Cork, guests will enjoy a day at a top culinary destination, Ballymaloe. This country estate has been converted into a world-renowned cooking school. Guests will tour the culinary and herb gardens, explore the free-range poultry farm and watch a cooking demonstration of a traditional Irish meal before sampling seasonal dishes from the famous Cookery School Gardens.
While in Palma de Mallorca, guests will tour a marketplace, sample varieties of olive oil at a country farm and savor lunch at El Faro, a restaurant perched above a horseshoe-shaped harbor.
