Seven Seas Splendor Culinary Arts

Seven Seas Splendor Culinary Arts

Regent Seven Seas Cruises has revealed 16 new Culinary Arts Kitchen classes for the 2020 inaugural season of Seven Seas Splendor. These include: ‘Island Fusion’; ‘Farmstand Fabulous’; ‘Treasure of the Aegean’; ‘Batter Up’; ‘The Nourished Kitchen-Plant Based Comforts’; ‘Sensuous Spain’; and ‘World of Flavours-Street Food’. The two-hour classes were designed by Kathryn Kelly, Regent Seven Seas’ executive director of culinary enrichment. Chef Kelly, a Culinary Institute of America graduate, has spent 40 years travelling to explore the world’s many different cuisines and the cultures that created them. She and other Master Instructors will teach the classes.

“Our curriculum appeals to a broad range of tastes and caters to all experience levels, from beginner to seasoned chefs, delivered in the most advanced teaching kitchen on the seas,” Kelly said. “We teach the culinary techniques that chefs use every day, build a recipe and skills repertoire that can be easily transferred to guests’ home kitchens, explore cuisines, spices, recipes and ingredients from our ports of call. Most of all, they have fun together sharing stories with people who enjoy cooking.

Chef Kelly continues, “When I was younger, we used to go to friends’ homes and they would pull out their projector and tell us about their trip through pictures. Today, our guests can share their cruise experiences at home by cooking meals for their friends that represent the destinations they explored during the voyage.”

The new classes will be expanded to Seven Seas Explorer in April 2020. Guests attending classes in the Culinary Arts Kitchen will receive highly individualized instruction, with each student cooking at their own personal workstation for authentic, hands-on training, and seeing close-up details on large-screen monitors.

Eighteen individual cooking stations sit atop three long curved rows with white quartzite countertops and stainless-steel accents. The workstations are fully equipped with top-of-the-line induction cook-tops, stainless steel sinks and a comprehensive collection of additional cooking essentials. The state-of-the-art culinary centre also features floor-to-ceiling windows offering magnificent ocean vista views from its aerie on Deck 11.
