Savor a cool, classic soup featuring almonds, grapes, and cucumbers

Celebrity Cruises partners with Fine Cooking magazine and their Emmy Award-nominated PBS series Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking to bring together premium travel and fine food on a new Moveable Feast cruise.

A recent Moveable Feast with Celebrity Cruises itinerary featured chef, restaurateur, and cookbook author Michelle Bernstein.

Chef Michelle Bernstein is a James Beard Award-winning chef and native of Miami who owns and operates MBC, Michelle Bernstein Catering Company, as well as Cafe La Trova in the Little Havana section of Miami. She also hosts a popular half-hour weekly television series, Check, Please! South Florida. Her take on casual and cosmopolitan Latin cuisine takes its cues from her Latin and Jewish roots along with her travels.

While sailing on a Moveable Feast with Celebrity Cruises, you’ll enjoy demonstrations of our featured chef’s best recipes. Accompany them, along with one of our onboard Celebrity chefs, for a Chef’s Market Discoveries shore excursion, where you’ll visit exciting food destinations, sample local specialties, and enjoy an exclusive onboard dinner inspired by the day’s market discoveries.

You don’t have to wait until you sail on one of our exclusive cruises to enjoy a chef’s delectable recipe. Prepare one of Chef Bernstein’s creations in your own kitchen using this recipe for White Almond Gazpacho.

Chef Bernstein’s recipe is her take on a classic white gazpacho. This blended cold soup is a staple in the Andalusia region of Spain where tender, sweet Marcona almonds are plentiful. The recipe incorporates salted Marcona almonds along with sweet green grapes and fragrant dill.

Rich extra virgin olive oil gives this cool, refreshing soup a creamy consistency, and the vegetable broth, garlic, and shallots kick up the vegetable quotient just the right amount.

Chef Michelle Bernstein’s recipe eschews adding the bread that’s classically called for. The result is a light, bright dish that makes her cuisine so popular.
