Oceania Cruises has announced another expansion to its popular Culinary Discovery Tours by unveiling new experiences for St. Lucia and Antigua that are set to debut during the forthcoming Caribbean season aboard Riviera.
Culinary Discovery Tours provide Oceania guests interested in epicurean treats a unique opportunity to explore local food markets, vineyards, farms and restaurants with a knowledgeable chef from the Bon Appétit Culinary Center.
The new Culinary Discovery Tours will be offered during the Holidays In The Tropics sailing (from £3,829pp) departing Miami on 23 December and on two Island Paradise voyages embarking in early 2015 (from £2,099pp). Highlights include:
St Lucia - Spices Cooking Studio
Guests begin the tour with a scenic drive through Rodney Bay Village to a magnificent private estate situated on the grounds of a former sugar cane plantation on the Atlantic side of the island. Using fresh, local ingredients, guests will prepare a menu of authentic St Lucian cuisine while learning about the subtleties of flavour and historical influences from the chef.
Antigua – Market Visit & Cooking Demo
Guests will enjoy a short ride to the centre of downtown St John’s and walk the local market with their Bon Appétit Culinary Center chef, who will show them a wide variety of typical local fruits such as breadfruit, mangoes, sour sap and dasheen. Following a hands-on cooking demonstration, guests will enjoy local, seasonal favourites for lunch while overlooking the beachfront property. After lunch, guests can go for a stroll on the private beach or relax at the property and perhaps peruse a book from the extensive library.
Cruise prices include all meals, return UK flights, complimentary bottled water and soft drinks.
