P&O Cruises Food Heroes will be travelling this year for a series of food and drink inspired holidays.
The Food Heroes, Marco Pierre White, Olly Smith, José Pizarro and Kjartan Skjelde will join guests across the P&O Cruises fleet for demonstrations, talks and hosted dinners.
P&O Cruises Food Hero Marco Pierre White said: “Whether I am designing menus for the Celebration night or doing a cookery demonstration for guests on board in my Cookery Club, I know that it has to make a holiday truly magical and memorable. Classic dishes made with seasonal and local ingredients will always create a fantastic dining experience.”
P&O Cruises Food Hero Olly Smith said: “It’s a joy to help guests choose the perfect drink to enjoy after a day exploring a spectacular destination or to accompany José’s glorious tapas in The Glass House. There is a wine out there for every palate and I love to give guests the opportunity to discover new grape varieties and styles for themselves.”
