Royal Caribbean International has partnered with
renowned Chefmakers Cooking Academy to bring unique cooking
programs to passengers.
Available now aboard Liberty of the Seas and
beginning in the fall aboard Freedom of the Seas, passengers, at
an additional cost, can choose from over a dozen Chefmakers at Sea
classes that are taught in the actual galleys of the ship.
Chefmakers at Sea’s hands-on classes range from
$40 to $125 and are suitable for both kitchen newbies and the
experienced home cook alike. With several essential programs like
Knife Skills, Quick & Easy Fish, and All About Chicken, to highly
social and interactive cooking parties like Asian Persuasion, New
American Cuisine, and Surf & Turf, there is an appetizing class
for every palate.
Successfully piloted aboard Mariner of the Seas,
the three-hour programs are open to guests 18 and over, who can
try their hand at a series of exciting recipes and new skills
under the careful guidance of the Chefmakers culinary team.
“At Chefmakers, we teach Royal Caribbean guests
the tricks of the trade, in turn providing a feeling of mastery
and confidence that will last long after their cruise,” said
Richard H. Klein, founder and CEO of Chefmakers Cooking Academy,
Other classes include: Small Bites; Quick & Easy
Pasta; Tamales; Lazy Day Brunch; California Cuisine; and Cooking
Around the World. In addition, Chefmakers at Sea offers a series
of festive holiday classes, such as: Pumpkin Carving; Gingerbread
House Decorating; Ultimate Thanksgiving; and Entertaining for New
Participants will receive their very own Chefmakers apron
and recipe cards for all menu items prepared, as well as
complimentary wine based on class selection. Guests will also have
the opportunity to purchase the high quality kitchenware and
utensils that they learn to use in the classes.
Little ones, from 4 to 11 years of age, can
kick-start their culinary careers with a one-hour “Kids with Kids
Baking” class. The future chefs learn to prepare homemade
sweet treats, like mini-puff pastry turnovers, learning lessons in
chemistry and kitchen hygiene along the way.
Guests can register and learn about the specific
classes being offered online using the Chefmakers pre-board
reservation system. Private Chefmakers at Sea programs also will
soon be available for various corporate groups that offer a very
unique team building experience as well as for families looking
for another memorable way to enjoy their cruise vacation.
