Holland America Line's Culinary Council Gathers Onboard ms Eurodam In New York
For Second Annual Meeting And Cooking Demonstrations
SEATTLE, Oct. 8, 2012 /CNW/ - Holland America Line's esteemed Culinary Council
culminated its second annual two-day meeting aboard ms Eurodam in New York on
Oct. 4. While council members consult with the line throughout the year, they
gather annually as a group to discuss current culinary trends, share
information about what they are seeing in their own businesses and share ideas
for Holland America's cuisine for the coming year. The council first met at
Fort Lauderdale in 2011 aboard ms Noordam.
Following the meeting, an interactive cooking demonstration was held in the
ship's state-of-the-art Culinary Arts Center. Holland America Line's Master
Chef and Culinary Council Chairman Rudi Sodamin, along with council members
Jonnie Boer, David Burke, Jacques Torres and Charlie Trotter, each showcased
how to prepare one of their specialty dishes which were later served during a
gourmet lunch to media and travel industry guests in the elegant Pinnacle
Sodamin featured Grilled Lime Marinated Scallops, Burke presented a Parfait of
Salmon and Tuna Tartares, Boer's signature dish was Cod with Lemongrass
Reduction, Trotter offered Lamb Loin with Artichokes and Red Wine Kalamata
Olive Sauce, and Torres completed the meal with a decadent Esterel Cake topped
with a layer of fresh raspberries.
As part of Holland America Line's innovative culinary program, the line
features recipes from the world-renowned Culinary Council members onboard all
Holland America Line cruises.
