P&O Cruises’ Food Heroes “jump ship” for land-based food tours

P&O Cruises has introduced new shore experiences, with their Food Heroes leading guests on a journey of discovery in Norway.

Chef Marco Pierre White, pâtissier Eric Lanlard and wine expert Olly Smith will each bring their expertise and flair to a series of excursions. They will guide small groups of guests on a mission to learn more about local delicacies and to discover how top Norwegian chefs create gourmet delights with regional produce.

The experiences will be available across seven cruises in 2019, before going on sale for Iona’s maiden season in the Norwegian Fjords from May 2020.

P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “We know our guests want to immerse themselves in new cultures and enjoy authentic experiences that provide a sense of the locality they visit. Food has an unmatched ability to communicate a unique sense of place, with local cuisine providing a direct connection to the history of a region, the soul of its people and the rhythm of daily life. Our Food Heroes will deliver a unique menu of experiences, with all the ingredients for the most appetising of adventures.”

Marco Pierre White will takes guests on a farm-to-table experience on two cruises: B913 Norwegian Fjords and B918 Norwegian Fjords. Eric Lanlard’s artisan foodie adventure can be enjoyed on three cruises next year: B911 Norwegian Fjords, B916 Norwegian Fjords and B924 Norwegian Fjords, and Olly Smith’s brewery tour will feature on B925 Mediterranean Cruise.
