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.

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.

雲頂香港營運總監蘇敬德先生表示麗星郵輪一直致力提升旅客郵輪旅遊體驗,「香港名廚星光饗宴」系列便是其中一個活動。蘇先生說:「麗星郵輪的環球美食一向獲得亞洲以至國際旅客好評,這次加入陳師傅的創意及高超的技藝,又將麗星郵輪的高水準美食體驗提升到新的境界。麗星郵輪亦致力推廣我們運營所在地區的本土文化,而飲食文化是無論男女老幼都感興趣的題材,我們將繼續邀請更多星級廚師登上我們的船隊,向來自世界各地的旅客推廣他們的拿手菜式。」

此外,陳師傅亦會現身於5月14日及21日出發的4日3夜台中-高雄航次,於船上親自作廚藝示範。陳師傅更會邀請幸運旅客一起烹調薑蔥爆鮑魚仔、驢打滾等菜式,從此在家中做出米芝蓮星級美味就再不是難事。

陳師傅還將擔任岸上美食旅遊團的星級領隊,特別設計的岸上美食旅遊團將帶領遊客發掘台中及高雄的風味美食,包括台中的正宗農家菜及高雄的街頭小食。各位老饕切勿錯過5月14日及21日出發的航次中陳師傅領隊的岸上美食旅遊團。
