Guests aboard Seabourn Sojourn’s 116-day world cruise departing Los Angeles on January 4, 2014 will savor the professional expertise and sociable companionship of four Michelin-starred chefs during the voyage. Culinary Conversations is one element of the line’s diverse Seabourn Conversations onboard enrichment series. The renowned chefs will not only conduct cooking demonstrations and supply signature touches for the ship’s menus, they will also join in Seabourn Sojourn’s relaxed, casually elegant social ambience.
Seabourn’s own executive chefs also typically have backgrounds in Michelin-starred restaurants, so they are thrilled at the chance to meet and learn from another chef who shares their passion for cooking.
The chefs scheduled to appear during the voyage are:
• Bernd Siener, (pictured) Executive chef at Marburger Esszimmer in Marburg, Germany made his reputation at various venues in that town’s luxurious Vila Vita Rosenparc spa-resort. (Jan. 21 -31, 2014)
• Christian Lohse – Executive chef at Fischers Fritz in Berlin, Germany, has garnered multiple Michelin stars and Gault-Millaut points throughout his career. (Jan. 21 – 31, 2014)
