Chef Nobu Matsuhisa To Join Crystal Serenity President Cruise In 2015

Master Chef Nobu Matsuhisa is to bring his internationally acclaimed expertise to Crystal Serenity’s Epicurean Escape cruise from Lisbon to Dover in July 2015.

The special dinners to be held onboard, sake tastings and celebrations set to feature Nobu’s famous Peruvian-infused Japanese cuisine will only enhance the special atmosphere onboard, as the sailing celebrates Crystal’s 25th Anniversary and is hosted by the lines president and COO Edie Rodriguez. Throughout the 13-night voyage, Nobu – whose signature cuisine is featured in Crystal’s Silk Road and The Sushi Bar – will share his talents and famously personable panache during cooking demos, book signings and Sake tastings with Sake Master Hazu – it really is going to be a voyage with a difference.

Guests will also have the opportunity to enjoy two very special dinners. Two omakase, or chef’s choice, dinners in Silk Road, with menus by Nobu featuring Connoisseur ingredients - including toro tuna - paired with champagne and rare, specially-crafted Hokustsu “Northern Snow” Sake and Ongaku-shu “Musical Sake”. The $250 per person dinners also offers guests a complimentary signed cookbook and photo with Nobu. Also available will be a rather extravagant, $1,000-per-guest Ultimate Vintage Room dinner with a specially designed menu complete with champagne and wine pairings for just 12 guests.

Nobu’s Japanese-Peruvian fusion cuisine has been served complimentary in Silk Road and The Sushi Bar onboard every Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity sailing since 2003 and 2008, respectively. Nobu personally trains all chefs, designs all menus and frequently visits the ships for ongoing refinement.
