Holland America Line is launching a new treat for its guests' inner foodie, debuting five new America's Test Kitchen shows aboard their ships in 2019. 

The new themes include:


  • Sweet and Fruity Desserts: The naturally sweet, tart flavors of apples and raspberries take centre stage in two knockout desserts: apple crisp and cheese blintzes with raspberry sauce.
  • Dinner Classics for Two: Learn the secrets for perfect chicken Marsala, rice pilaf and warm chocolate fudge cakes to make an elegant meal for two.
  • Mediterranean Medley: This easy weeknight meal is an assortment of dishes from countries along the Mediterranean, including restaurant-style hummus and tender lamb meatballs with couscous and yogourt sauce.
  • Serious Tacos: Two new recipes that elevate the taco game, shredded chicken tacos braised in a deeply flavoured sauce and easy (and crispy) shrimp tacos.
  • Make Your Own Takeout: Learn how to make your own authentic versions takeout favourites like pad Thai and scallion pancakes at home.


Holland America chefs trained by America's Test Kitchen culinary experts host the new 45-minute live cooking presentations that provide guests with live demonstrations, recipes and expert tips.

“Holland America Line guests are knowledge seekers, foodies and learners, and our America’s Test Kitchen shows really resonate with them — which is why they’re wildly popular and draw standing-room-only crowds,” said Orlando Ashford, Holland America Line’s president. “We’re excited to expand on the already exceptional menu of shows offered by America’s Test Kitchen to include some fun topics that easily transition to the home kitchen.”

All Holland America Line ships (except Maasdam) feature an onboard venue replicating that of the popular television show, America’s Test Kitchen. The five new cooking shows join a collection of 14 other cooking demonstrations.

In addition to the shows, Holland America Line guests have 24-hour access to episodes of “America’s Test Kitchen” and “Cook’s Country” television programs in their staterooms.
