Cruise & Dine: Celebrity chef gives SuperStar Virgo Michelin flavors 星級名廚陳國強師傅為「處女星號」帶來米芝蓮滋味

• May 6, 2014


From May 11 to June 10, Michelin Chef Kenny Chan, winner of TVB cooking contest “Apprentice Chef” will be the first to kick start Cruise & Dine with Celebrity Chef on SuperStar Virgo, which will be homeported in Hong Kong from now to October 26. (From left to right) Genting Hong Kong Senior Vice President of Sales Mr. Michael Goh, Genting Hong Kong Chief Financial Officer Ms. Joyce Tan, SuperStar Virgo Executive Sous Chefs Chuah Choong Hooi and Alan Chan, SuperStar Virgo Executive Chef Reinhard Mammes, Celebrity Chef Kenny Chan, Genting Hong Kong Chief Operating Officer Mr. William Ng, Vice President of Sales Mr. Braydon Holland at the kickoff dinner for the promotion.

Hong Kong, 24 April, 2014 – Drawing upon Hong Kong’s reputation as a gourmet heaven, SuperStar Virgo will team up with celebrity chef Kenny Chan Kwok Keung to delight foodies from around the world with an authentic epicurean journey.

From 11 May to 10 June, Michelin Chef Kenny Chan, winner of TVB cooking contest “Apprentice Chef”, will be the first to kick start a series of Cruise & Dine with Celebrity Chef themed cruises on SuperStar Virgo, which is homeported in Hong Kong from now to October 26.

Hong Kong celebrity chef Kenny Chan teams up with SuperStar Virgo’s award-winning chef team to design more than 20 dishes for the ship’s Tuesday gala dinner and four restaurants—Noble House, Pavilion, Bella Vista and Mediterranean.

Chef Chan has tailored more than 20 dishes for the acclaimed restaurants on board. At premium restaurant Noble House, guests can try his award-winning masterpieces Stir-fried Prawn with Wild Mushroom (TVB “Apprentice Chef”: 1st Round Champion) and Wok-fried Crabmeat and Rock Lobster with Salted Egg Yolk on Rice Crackers (Hong Kong Tourism Board The Best of the Best Culinary Awards Stir Fried Category: Gold with Distinction Award). The master chef has also crafted items for the Tuesday gala dinner and the three inclusive restaurants on board—Pavilion, Bella Vista and Mediterranean. Guests will have an exclusive chance to taste all his signature dishes such as the original Barbecue Beef in Honey Sauce, Steamed Pork Balls with Crabmeat in Soup, and local favourite Fried Mantis Shrimp with Chilli & Spiced Salt in one go.

“It’s my aspiration as a Hong Kong homegrown chef to promote our cuisine to overseas travellers because it is a part of the local culture that I’m so proud of,” Chef Chan said. “When people think of Hong Kong, they often think of a melting pot of food where you can find authentic Cantonese food as well as East meets West fusion items. The menu I’ve created for SuperStar Virgo has elements of both so that passengers can get a slice of the best of Hong Kong.”

Genting Hong Kong Chief Operating Officer Mr. Blondel So said the Cruise & Dine with Celebrity Chef promotion is one of the ongoing initiatives to better the Star Cruises holiday experience. “The fantastic F&B offerings of Star Cruises are celebrated by Asian and international guests. With his creativity and masterful skills, Chef Chan will give our menu a spin and further raise our already high standards. Star Cruises has always been keen on promoting the local cultures of places we go to, and food culture is something that intrigues everyone. We’ll continue to invite well known celebrity chefs to come on board to help promote the cuisines they represent to guests from around the world.”

Other than the special menu, Chef Chan will conduct live cooking demonstrations on the two 4D3N Taichung/Kaohsiung cruises departing from Hong Kong on 14 and 21 May. Passengers can get up close and personal with the celebrity chef and pick up some of his cooking secrets. Lucky passengers can even win the chance to go on stage and be the apprentices of Chef Chan. Reproducing dishes such as Sautéed Abalone with Spring Onion and Ginger, and Glutinous Rice Ball Stuffed with Red Bean Paste at home will soon be a breeze.

Wok-fried Crabmeat and Rock Lobster with Salted Egg Yolk on Rice Crackers is the Gold with Distinction Award-winning dish of Hong Kong Tourism Board The Best of the Best Culinary Awards (Stir Fried Category) 2006.

Stir-fried Prawn with Wild Mushroom is the award-winning dish of TVB “Apprentice Chef”: 1st Round Champion.

As a culinary expert adorned with international accolades, Chef Chan enjoys sampling authentic local food wherever he goes. He will take cruisers to some of the best restaurants and food stalls in Taiwan to try delectable authentic farmer home dishes in Taichung and street snacks in Kaohsiung. Don’t miss the chance to join the special shore excursions led by Chef Chan during the cruises departing on 14 and 21 May.

The 75,338-tonne 13-deck SuperStar Virgo carries up to 2,500 passengers in its 935 cabins and 1,870 lower berths. During the six-month deployment, it will be offering weekly 4D3N cruises from Hong Kong to Kaohsiung and Taichung, 4D3N cruises to Sanya and Halong Bay and 1-night highseas cruises to South China Sea. Once a month, passengers can visit Taiwan’s three biggest cities—Taipei (Keelung), Kaohsiung and Taichung—on a 7D6N cruise.

On Star Cruises, every journey is a voyage of discovery and surprise.
