Holland America’s Culinary Cruises to Feature its Culinary Council Chefs

Master Chef Rudi Sodamin

Holland America Line’s 2022 Culinary Cruises will feature a member from the line's Culinary Council, according to a press release.

The celebrity chefs will share their knowledge and secrets with the guests, who will be able to attend cooking demonstrations led by the chefs, take home recipes from each presentation, and participate in an intimate reservation-only dinner at Pinnacle Grill, Rudi's Sel de Mer, or Nami Sushi, depending on the chef. Chef signature dishes from the Culinary Council will be highlighted when they are available on all restaurant menus during the cruises, according to the company.

"It's not every day you learn a recipe directly from the famous chef who created it and hear their secrets to success in the kitchen. We have been eager to reengage our talented Culinary Council chefs to come back on board and offer guests this exclusive level of access,” commented Michael Stendebach, vice president of food, beverage and guest services, Holland America Line.
