- Norwegian Cruise Line’s Extraordinary Chefs Table Experience -
Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled an intimate, once-in-a-lifetime gourmet dining experience, introducing the Chefs Table fleet-wide. Guests who attend the Chefs Table dining experience will marvel at the incredible culinary adventure, as they feast on a nine-course, upscale menu consisting of unique and contemporary creations. The highest quality ingredients, sophisticated cooking techniques, flavorful compositions and captivating presentations highlight the dining experience. All courses are accompanied by wines that are specially paired by a Master Sommelier.
The two-and-a-half hour Chefs Table dining experience begins with an intimate reception where guests enjoy a glass of champagne as they mingle with the ship’s Executive Chef, Food and Beverage Director, Restaurant Manager, Assistant Maître d’ and Head Wine Steward. Following the reception, guests are invited to take a group photo. Their gourmet culinary experience then unfolds in a luxurious and intimate restaurant setting which provides privacy and exclusivity. As the event begins, the Executive Chef welcomes the group, and describes the first two courses: an Amuse Bouche ‘Molecular Gastronome’ consisting of Spherical Mango, Vodka & Jalapeno Ravioli, and an Orange-Wasabi Glazed Ahi Tuna Tartar with freshly-baked Sesame Crisp.
Chefs Table Wines Selected by A Master Sommelier
Courses one and two are accompanied by the Master Sommelier’s first expertly paired wine selection. Asparagus Cream is served for course three, followed by the fourth course, a Short Crust Tartlet. A delightful Grapefruit and Moscato Granite is served as course number five. As the Executive Chef describes the ingredients and technique used to create courses three through five, the second wine selection is served and the Chef invites questions about the dishes. Course six consists of a Plantain Crusted, Pan Seared Sea Bass accompanied by Mango, Papaya & Avocado Salsa and Lobster Veloute. A Milk-Fed Veal Chop with Anna Potatoes, Sautéed Spinach and Truffle Veal Jus rounds out course number seven. A specially selected cheese platter that boasts an assortment of gourmet cheeses is served as course eight. The grand finale, course nine, is a tantalizing dessert selection. Guests may choose a Yogurt-Mousse Dome with Lychee Raspberry Crème, Hazel Sablee and Lime Vanilla Reduction, or a Chocolate Log with ‘Spiced’ Dark Rum, Infused Banana and Cocoa Mousse.
