One of the great joys of travel is discovering new ingredients and experiencing well-prepared food close to its source. “Good cooking always starts with top quality ingredients,” says Cornelius Gallagher, Celebrity Cruises’ Associate Vice President of Food & Beverage.
Even before you sail to one of our 300 cruise destinations, you can discover new flavors and ingredients by making the vacation meal recipes in this Taste for Travel collection, adapted from Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking.
Chef Pete Evans’ recipe for spicy Balinese roasted chicken introduces flavors of the South Pacific and hints at the influences of regional Indonesian, Thai, Chinese, and Indian culture on Bali’s cuisine. Garlic, ginger, Thai chilies, and turmeric are sauteed to make a quick rub for the chicken.
Fragrant leaves from the small pebbled makrut lime, a staple in Thai and Southeast Asian cuisines, are added to the chicken, which is then marinated for a few hours before baking.
Sip a Maui Mule, another of the Taste of Travel recipes, while the chicken bakes. This cocktail offers a new twist on the classic Moscow Mule and features Hawaiian vodka and turbinado sugar.
Show off your culinary chops at your next dinner party by serving Chef Pete’s recipe for little gem salad with prosciutto as a first course. This easy vacation meal of little gem or romaine lettuce is topped with a silky olive oil, honey, and whole-grain mustard vinaigrette and garnished with thinly sliced prosciutto di Parma.
Follow with an excellent main course using the recipe for Grilled skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, where popular skirt steak is grilled to perfection, sliced thin, and served with a vibrant green-herb sauce.
This easy vacation meal menu deserves a great cocktail, and the bourbon mojito recipe included in this palate-pleasing Taste of Travel recipe collection is just the ticket.
