After 10 years of creating cuisine for cruise guests, Chef Charlie Palmer will complete his role as Seabourn’s Consulting Executive Chef in December 2011.

“It has been a fulfilling journey to work with Seabourn and introduce creative dishes that showcase familiar and fresh ingredients,” explains Palmer. “Seabourn’s clientele demands five-star hospitality and I was determined to demonstrate that five-star cuisine could be a part of that experience.”

“We are grateful to Charlie for the expertise and insight he has provided us,” said Seabourn President Richard Meadows. “It has indeed been a fulfilling journey and, I might add, a delicious one. Charlie’s guidance to Seabourn’s highly-skilled culinary team has helped bring Seabourn’s cuisine on par with the best in the world.”

Chef Palmer will continue to open new restaurant and hotel concepts across the U.S.
