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 
Grill restaurant. 
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.
