Luxury Cruise Line Cunard has announced a world-class line-up for their first-ever Festival of Food & Wine on board Queen Mary 2.
The seven-night Transatlantic crossing will bring together leading authorities in the food and wine industry, including legendary chef Michel Roux Jr.
As chef patron of one of the UK’s finest Michelin-starred French cuisine restaurants, Le Gavroche, Roux will indulge guests in a feast of the senses with a series of hosted dinners in the Verandah restaurant as well as a three-course signature gala menu in the Britannia Grill.
He will be joined by Le Gavroche executive chef, Rachel Humphrey, and will also be holding a cooking demonstration during the crossing.
Roux said: “I am thrilled to be joining Cunard on the first ever Festival of Food & Wine voyage on their flagship Queen Mary 2, alongside a host of experts in their fields.
“For the first time ever, I will be taking Le Gavroche to sea – offering spectacular menus for guests to enjoy across the week.
“This will be a very special voyage, and I can’t wait to get on board.”
Steven Spurrier, the wine critic behind the Judgement of Paris, will also take part in a talk and wine tastings.
