With its intimate fleet of five all-suite vessels, Silversea Cruises has earned a reputation for personalized, culturally enriching voyages, each offering its own unique experience. For food lovers, Silversea has created its Culinary Arts series, a collection of seven different culinary themed cruises. This late-2012 through spring 2013 series will showcase some of the world’s finest chefs and culinary experts and include cooking demonstrations, escorted shore excursions to local markets, food and wine pairings and five-course grand gourmet dinners.

Throughout the sailings, guests will enjoy insights into the signature dishes of chefs such as the Chinese-born Ying Compestine, cookbook author and former food editor for Martha Stewart’s Whole Living magazine, or Norwegian superstar Eyvind Hellstrøm, the man behind Oslo’s wildly successful Bagatelle restaurant. A series highlight, the Lisbon to Portsmouth “Flavours of Europe” cruise will take place from April 29 to May 13, 2013. Including singular opportunities for hosted visits to a farm in Bordeaux and a seafood market in Spain, this voyage will be led by Silversea culinary director chef Rudi Scholdix and feature David Bilsland, culinary trainer for the Relais & Châteaux L’Ecole des Chefs.
