Prestigious James Beard House to Feature Celebrity Cruises Chefs in an Industry-First Culinary Celebration

Anyone who believes that cruise ship dining is driven by quantity over quality has not experienced Celebrity Cruises' award-winning cuisine, a leading component of the modern luxury vacation offered on its stylish ships. The esteemed James Beard House in New York City has taken note of Celebrity's culinary leadership, and as a result will feature cruise line chefs for the first time on April 5, 2012, when Celebrity's master chefs Jacques Van Staden and John Suley will cook at the legendary historic venue.

The James Beard House is known for its events, including guest chef-led dinners, which aim to educate, inspire, entertain and foster an appreciation of cuisine among members as well as the general public, while benefiting the non-profit James Beard Foundation. Once the home of American culinary pioneer James Beard, who laid the groundwork for America's gastronomic excellence, the James Beard House is today regarded as a culinary performance space.

"We selected Jacques and John to cook at the James Beard House because the culinary journey that they have created for guests on Celebrity Cruises' ships truly is outstanding," said Izabela Wojcik, Director of House Programming, The James Beard Foundation. "Their incredible creativity is the reason why Celebrity's guests have the opportunity to delve into an extraordinary range of globally influenced flavors and presentations."

"We are incredibly honored that Celebrity Cruises is being recognized by an institution wholly committed to culinary excellence, education and exploration," said Van Staden. "We want people to realize that the cuisine we're serving on our ships is extraordinarily unique, creative, and modern, and it's a large part of what makes the Celebrity vacation experience unique. What we offer has in many ways changed the dynamics of cruise ship dining, and there's no better way to tell our story than by cooking at the James Beard House."

Van Staden and Suley have shaped a six-course menu reflective not only of Celebrity's modern, innovative cuisine, but also of their own ingenuity, technical prowess and globally influenced style. The menu for the April 5 dinner showcases the chefs' adeptness at merging a range of ingredients, spices, techniques and flavor profiles to create a brilliant progression of tastes, from light and clean to rich and dense. Celebrity's in-house sommelier and beverage programming expert, Chanelle Duarte, developed the wine selections to complement each course. Selections were chosen not only for their texture, body and flavor, but also for their prestige and, in some cases, boutique nature – characteristics which align with Celebrity's cuisine.
