Silversea To Feature ‘Relais & Châteaux LÉcole des Chefs' School for 2012

Luxury cruise line Silversea Cruises has announced that 20 of their 2012 voyages will feature the exclusive ‘Relais & Châteaux LÉcole des Chefs’ Cooking School.

Silversea is the only cruise line to feature the unique cookery school devised by Relais & Châteaux. Hosted by Chef David Bilsland, the culinary school which is free of charge will offer a broad range of culinary events such as workshops, talks and demonstrations.

Highlights include workshops dedicated to a range of cookery topics from kitchen terminology, to baking and basic knife skills. Guests can participate in cooking demonstrations that feature wine pairing and Q&A sessions. There will be light-hearted cooking competitions between Chef Bilsland and Silversea’s culinary team, a “lunch and learn” event offering small groups a change to sample specially created dishes and “Take It Home” recipes class for guests who want to impress at their home dinner parties.

Each culinary event has been carefully designed to reflect the ships itinerary and offers guests the chance for culinary learning ashore. Highlights include the “Market to Plate” tour in which guests are escorted to the local market to shop for ingredients used to created dishes back onboard, and the “Culinary Outing,” escorting guests to local restaurants and hotels to sample the region’s top cuisine.
