How fast a week goes by – when one is having fun!
Our voyage will come to an end in very short order but that does not stop us from enjoying all the ship has to offer.
All dressed up, Jerry and I joined 11 other guests for the very exclusive Chef’s Table on deck 11. It turned out that 6 guests were from California which made for great conversation. This optional 5 course meal comes with a sommeliers selection of paired wines. It was the highlight meal of the cruise – If your ship offers it, I highly recommend signing up for it in advance as it does sell out.
From top to bottom, our meal began with a scallop carpaccio with Yuzu vinaigrette. The course was paired with a Sauvignon blanc from Northern California.
The second course consisted of a smoked tomato soup served with an unoaked Chardonnay from Silver winery on the Monterey peninsula.
The third course teased our taste buds with poached lobster bites on a sliver of heart of palm amd pineapple with arugula and a vanilla dressing – Delish – especially with the French Chablis from Burgundy it was paired with.
Main course for most was a beautiful Angus fillet of beef with truffles linguine as a side plate. This course came paired with a Honig 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. It was heaven!
In all the excitement, I forgot to take a picture of desert. Sorry.
To top off the evening we grabbed center front seats for the show Blue Planet which featured many of our stars from Mamma Mia – what a treat!
