Yorkshire Foodies Get Chance To Sail With TV Chef

TV Chef Daniel Galmiche

Four-times Michelin-star chef Daniel Galmiche will celebrate the best of French cuisine with guests on Saga’s new ship Spirit of Adventure when it sets sail for its 12-night all-inclusive A Taste of France and Spain cruise in 12 months.

On board the all-balcony ship chef Daniel, whose regular TV appearances include BBC’s Saturday Kitchen, will hold masterclasses and work alongside the executive chef to create regional specialities.

During ports of call the cruise-loving chef will also jump ashore to go food shopping and says ‘he can’t wait’ to buy produce and share his love of ‘proper French-Mediterranean cooking’ with guests in September 2020.

From Montoir, he and guests will visit the Loire Valley and an overnight stop in Bordeaux will provide more opportunities to buy wine, cheese and local specialities.

Daniel, who was brought up to appreciate organic food at his great aunt’s smallholding in the Franche-Comté region of France, said: “From an early age I understood ‘happy farming’. The animals and poultry were very well looked after but I always knew they would go in the family pot. It was the reward of happy farming.

“All around me was great cooking and baking, too, and my passion continues – I love a proper French brasserie, it is the best kind of restaurant.”

Expert wine writer and broadcaster Ewan Lacey, of Channel 4’s The Cookery School, will also join the cruise to share his knowledge at tastings and during tours to wine regions.

The 999-passenger boutique ship also calls into Leixoes for Oporto in Portugal, Brest in France, and St Peter Port in Guernsey.
