Menu featuring cuisine from top Dutch chef now on two Holland America Line 
SEATTLE, Sept. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Last year Holland America Line debuted a new 
alternative dining option exclusively aboard ms Rotterdam called "Taste of De 
Librije" featuring the cuisine of Culinary Council member and Michelin Three 
Star Chef Jonnie Boer. Given its popularity and success as an alternative 
dining option, the line has extended the experience to ms Eurodam. 
Named after Boer's restaurant in the Netherlands, the menu showcases a 
selection of starters, soups, entrees and desserts from his land-based eatery. 
Once per cruise the Pinnacle Grill is transformed for dinner with service 
staff wearing the uniform livery from De Librije, the restaurant's table 
set-up is replicated and the wine list highlights a selection of labels from 
the Lady De Librije collection. Reservations can be made for "Taste of De 
Librije" for a US $69 surcharge per person including wine pairings. 
"Taste of De Librije is being expanded because the experience has been so 
popular with not only our Dutch guests who know Jonnie well, but with all our 
of guests who have enjoyed the opportunity to sample his remarkable cuisine," 
said Richard Meadows, executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest 
programs for Holland America Line. "We continue to be excited to work with 
Jonnie beyond his role on our Culinary Council and look forward to offering 
this new dining option to guests sailing on ms Eurodam." 
The five-course menu starts with North Sea Scallops served to all diners. From 
there, guests can select among three appetizers, two soups, four entrees and 
three desserts. The tantalizing dishes include Oysters on the Beach with micro 
greens; Torched Langoustine with green bean coulis; Potato Soup with lobster 
and chorizo; Seared North Sea Cod with Speck Ham; Beef Tenderloin with bulgur 
wheat and smoked olive oil foam; Deconstructed Apple Pie with vanilla gelato 
and Chantilly-style cream, and Rice Chocolate Stones with tuile and 
When guests return to their stateroom following the dining experience, they 
will find a special Jonnie Boer surprise gift. 
Boer is a rising star of the Dutch culinary scene. In addition to being a 
member of Holland America Line's esteemed Culinary Council composed of six 
international chefs, he is chef and co-owner of Michelin-rated De Librije 
Restaurant and De Librije Hotel in Zwolle, Netherlands. Boer holds the Relais 
& Chateaux grand chef designation.
