Oceania Cruises is unveiling new dinner menus, featuring an all-new Executive Chef’s Food & Wine Pairing, available every evening and featuring the chef’s selection of dishes.
“These spectacular new menus exemplify our commitment to culinary excellence and offering our guests not just the finest cuisine at sea, but diverse dining choices that surprise and delight the palate,” stated Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.
New Dining Choices Offer Flexibility and Customization at Sea
Each evening in the Grand Dining Room, guests will be treated to more than two dozen dishes to choose from – six appetizers, three soups, four salads, nine main courses, and nine side dishes. Every menu incorporates vegetarian dishes along with Canyon Ranch Balanced Selections. All in all, the menus comprise more than 800 dishes. Guests may choose as many, or few courses as they wish along with their side dishes and all accompaniments, which are ordered a la carte.
Hundreds of New Dishes Accompany Time-Honored Favorites
“The new Grand Dining Room dinner menus are truly the most creative and varied that you will find at sea. I’m so tremendously proud of our entire culinary team as every member had a hand in the crafting of these amazing creations,” stated Franck Garanger, Corporate Executive Chef for Oceania Cruises.
New additions such as herb-crusted cornish hen diavolo, Palermo-style grilled swordfish, smoked ricotta risotto, and Paul Bocuse’s Alaskan halibut Viennoise, accompany old favorites such as Jacques Pepin’s quartet of beef bourginon, salmon supreme, steak frittes, and herb-crusted rotisserie chicken. Other classics being reprised include involtini di melanzane alla parmigiana, traditional coq au vin, golden-friend wiener schnitzel, and dover sole meuniere.
Perfect Pairings for a Perfect Evening
Reflecting Oceania Cruises’ globe-trotting adventures, the new menus feature a Global Cuisine tasting every evening that focuses on a particular region, specific country, or particular cooking style – Asia, France, Cuba, India, United States, Spain, Thailand, Morocco, Polynesian, Greek, South America, and Japan. For those seeking a healthy choice, Balanced Selection offers up four courses of lighter offerings. The Food & Wine Pairing menu offers up four courses selected by our master chefs which are expertly paired with four different wines selected by our head sommelier to present a perfectly-paired gourmet tasting menu each evening.
These new menus are currently available onboard Riviera and will be introduced aboard Sirena in May, Insignia in June, Nautica and Marina in July, and Regatta in August.
