Celebrated UK Chef Antony Worrall Thompson sets sail with MSC Cruises

MSC Cruises is delighted to announce that Antony Worrall Thompson, one of the UK’s most popular and successful chefs, will be performing a unique series of demonstrations on board MSC Splendida next February.

Antony is an award winning chef, restaurateur, author, television presenter and broadcaster, whose on screen credits have encompassed everything from Ready Steady Cook and I’m A Celebrity Get Me out of Here through to Panorama and Question Time.

He will be joining MSC Splendida in Barcelona on Sunday 5th February 2012. A series of appearances at sea on Monday 6th February will then see this culinary maestro showcase some of his best loved dishes – and a selection unique to MSC.

Commented Worrall Thompson: “I have always loved messing about in boats, so when MSC Cruises asked me to come on board and cook for some of its guests, it was too good an opportunity to miss. Particularly when the request comes from a company that places such importance on great food.

“I will be demonstrating some of my favourite dishes, plus a couple of surprises that I am preparing specially for the occasion.”


New for the 2011-2012 season, Antony is among five of Europe’s top chefs who will be joining the MSC fleet for a series of special theme cruises.

Other chefs taking part are Michelin starred French chef Gilles Epié, Kolja Kleeberg (Germany), Filippo La Mantia (Italy) and the Michelin star winner Paco Roncero (Spain).

Antony will be joining MSC Splendida on her 8 day, 7 night cruise departing 4th February 2012 (Genoa, Barcelona, Valletta, La Goulette (Tunisia), Civitavecchia (Rome), Marseille, Genoa).
