Silversea Has Launched
Viking Cooking School
Silversea Cruises has expanded its enrichment portfolio with the official launch of the Viking Cooking School onboard its ships.
Developed through the company's partnership with Viking Range Corporation, the Viking Cooking School on select Silversea voyages now features a custom-designed demonstration culinary theater.
The theater is equipped with state-of-the-art induction stove, sophisticated convection-microwave oven and Viking professional-caliber cookware, cutlery and countertop appliances.
Plus, guests on the select voyages hosted by Viking chefs will easily view cooking techniques on a large rear projection screen
Highlights include cooking demonstrations with wine pairings and interactive Q&A sessions; a "Lunch and Learn" event giving groups of 12-16 guests a chance to sample a delicious meal of specially prepared dishes; and a "Market to the Plate" experience. The latter is offered on certain voyages (when the itinerary permits) and provides an escorted tour of a local market followed by a cooking class.
"This alliance was a natural one for us and we are thrilled to be the only cruise line to partner with this renowned luxury company," said Erling Frydenberg, Silversea's chief operations officer.
"There are land-based Viking Cooking Schools in select cities, but our ships are the first in the cruise industry to present the exclusive Viking curriculum in custom-designed culinary theaters at sea," he added.

"Many of our guests have Viking appliances at home, so the interactive cooking demonstrations not only entertain and educate, but are a great opportunity for guests to ask questions and learn more about how to get the most benefits from their own high-performance culinary equipment," Frydenberg noted.
