Silversea has announced that Michelin star chef, Jason Atherton, will cook for guests onboard Silver Shadow's Hong Kong to Singapore Cruise on 25th November 2013.
Atherton, a Michelin star chef in his own right who has also worked for Pierre Koffmann, Nico Ladenis, Marco Pierre White and Gordon Ramsey, will cook guests a unique four course meal. Though the menu remains in development, Atherton is known around the world for his signature dishes that includes his Scallop Sashimi.
Guests will also be treated to a tour of one of Ha Long Bay's markets with Atherton, where he will give guests tips of choosing fresh fish and meat as well as tips on planning a menu.
Mike Bonner, Silversea General Manager UK, Ireland & Middle East, commented: "Jason Atherton is one of the finest chefs of his generation. He is producing high-quality, much sought-after world-class food at his restaurants in Europe and Asia and we are delighted to welcome him on Silver Shadow to cook for our guests. This voyage will be the ultimate in fine dining in 2013."
Jason Atherton added: "I am very excited to be boarding my first ever sea journey and cooking for these distinguished guests. It will not only be a first for me but also a great challenge to deliver Michelin-star cuisine on board one of Silversea’s premier ships. The market trip will provide me with the opportunity to pass on years of experience to the guests who join me, from cooking tips to choosing fresh fish and meat, as well as menu planning. It will also be a lot of fun!"
Silversea already offer one of the most luxurious experiences at sea, with some of the finest cuisine in cruising, but this guest appearance really will be the icing on the cake for anyone onboard.
