Brand new for our 2017 Bordeaux, Rhone and Saone River Cruises in France. We are offering our guests the chance to learn how to whip up local recipes in our exclusive, private Scenic Culinaire cooking classes.
We have transformed our on-board dining venues on our Space-Ships: Scenic Diamond, Scenic Emerald, and Scenic Sapphire to include a private cooking emporium offering tailored cooking classes for up to 10 guests. The dedicated space will feature cooking stations, a cheese and wine cellar, and our cooking instructors will source fresh ingredients from a local French market to introduce guests to regional recipes.
Shop with a chef then cook it all up
Spend the morning gathering fresh ingredients at a local market under the expert guidance of our chef, before heading back to the ship to cook up a storm in a Scenic Culinaire class.
From famed French pastries to the chocolate of Bordeaux; the seafood of the Arcachon coast or the carnivorous delights of Provence, we’ll tailor each Scenic Culinaire class to the region we’re cruising through to further enhance your experience of French cuisine.
Each Scenic Culinaire class caters exclusively to 10 guests to ensure an intimate experience and features a real-time camera and screen to ensure each participant can see every cooking move in detail. Plenty of sessions scheduled throughout the cruise, however with exclusive numbers, participants are encouraged to register their interest early.
Classes are limited to 10 guests so that we can ensure an intimate experience.
Reservations are made with your Cruise Director when you board one of our France River Cruises in 2017.
NB: Scenic Culinaire is not available on the Scenic Gem (Gems Of The Seine)
