P&O Reveal 'Food Heroes' For New Ship Britannia

Date Posted: 13 Feb 2014

P&O Cruises last night announced five celebrity chefs to feature alongside each other on new ship Britannia.

At an exciting press launch last night at Forman’s Fish Island in London it was revealed five famous chefs will feature on the same ship together for the first time.

Food will be a key focus on Britannia and truly represent the varied, cultural and unique culinary delights we have a passion for in Britain. With exquisite dining venues, enticing menus and interactive cookery classes - taste buds will be set alight.

P&O favourites Marco Pierre White, Atul Kochhar and Olly Smith are set to feature onboard the British-themed ship to present popular dishes aswell as take part in intercative classes.

Saturday Kitchen star James Martin was revealed to join the star studded line up of chefs. Having presented BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen for over six years, he has set up a new feature onboard Britannia called The Cookery Club. This will see himself and fellow celebrity chefs teach groups of passengers the secrets behind their world-class cooking.

The fifth 'hero' announced was master patissier, Eric Lanlard. Having impressed the culinary world with his passion for baking, he will now bring his expertise to The Market Café. Baking an array of fresh cakes and sweet desserts, it will be a foodie heaven!

Christopher Edgigton, New Marketing Director of P&O Cruises said “We are incredibly honoured to have secured the services of the best chefs at sea.”

Britannia will launch in March 2015 as is the newest and biggest ship built specifically for the British market. See Britannia Itineraries here.
