The attending travel agents will be the first to experience the globally inspired delectable dishes that will feature on-board the new ship Celebrity Edge before it sets sails in December 2018.
Agents will indulge their inner foodie as they savour a wonderful mix of gastronomic delights inspired by some of the world’s foremost gourmet destinations including Tuscany and the Mediterranean.
Dedicated agent tastings will both bring to life the new dining experience on-board Celebrity Edge, and train agents to boost their confidence in selling cruises to those who love to travel for new food and drink experiences.
Agents will enjoy an exclusive chef’s table hosted by Michelin-starred Chef Cornelius Gallagher - the visionary behind Celebrity Edge’s 29 new restaurant and bar concepts. The carefully curated delicacies will be complemented by perfectly paired wines chosen by Joe Fattorini and Amelia Singer, resident wine experts of the international TV series, The Wine Show.
“We are excited to reveal the culinary experience that will be available on Celebrity Edge here in the UK to a small group of our agent partners, six months ahead of the ship’s launch. Taste of London is the perfect platform to showcase a little taster of the authentic culinary journey that explores the world without ever having to leave your table. We are thrilled to have our wonderful and talented Michelin-starred Chef Cornelius Gallagher and his team with us this year to add another dimension to our world class gastronomic journey. It’s our sixth year at Taste of London, and it promises to be our best yet.” Says Jo Rzymowska, vice president and managing director, UK, Ireland and Asia, Celebrity Cruises.
