One of the biggest highlights on a Seabourn cruise is when guests head for the local markets and go shopping with the chef. During a recent stop in Syracuse, Sicily, a small group of Seabourn Spirit guests accompanied Chef Paskins to the market to learn about local produce and pick out the freshest ingredients for the Chef’s Dinner. What was on the shopping list? Fresh branzini, which is also known as Mediterranean sea bass.
Always friendly and welcoming, the owners of the market warmly greeted the group and shared some delicious cheese and wine during the visit. Guests were able to see and experience the many delicious flavors of Italy, from pesto, olives, local bread and cheeses, and fresh seafood, and fruit. And the best part of it all was when the guests were able to feast on the items after Chef Paskins prepared them for dinner and barbeque buffet!
