The Windstar Culinary Cruise Collection kicked off on May 6 with a cooking demonstration and meal presented by Denver restaurant powerhouse Chef Jan Jasinski, a James Beard Foundation award-winner for Best Chef Southwest. With restaurants Rioja and Bistro Vendôme focusing on Mediterranean and Spanish cuisine, Chef Jasinski was a natural fit to host the Western Mediterranean cruise from Rome to Barcelona. Over half of the onboard cruisers attended her cooking demonstration, followed by a near-capacity dinner in AmphorA . Her dishes were the clear favorite, with offerings ranging from an heirloom tomato consommé with goat cheese ravioli, to seared sea scallops on a coconut risotto cake with mango salad and Thai green curry sauce.

You can still book your client’s on Lands of the Midnight Sun with Chef Paul Berglund!  Based in Minneapolis, his restaurant, the Bachelor Farmer, focuses on Scandinavian food heritage, with fresh and simple dishes that change daily.
