Silversea Unveils Immersive Culinary Enrichment Program

Open Jaw

Silversea Cruises has announced a new culinary enrichment program – S.A.L.T., or ‘Sea and Land Taste’ – which has been crafted with immersive culinary experiences in mind. Designed in collaboration with Adam Sachs, a multi-award winning journalist and former editor-in-chief at a leading culinary magazine, Silversea’s Sea and Land Taste project will enable guests to travel deeper through a range of culinary insights, once it is inaugurated with the launch of Silver Moon in AUG 2020.

The new program will be tailored according to the sailed region and will incorporate both ship-based and shoreside enrichments, including market trips, winery visits, and dining experiences in regional restaurants and bars; food and wine tastings; special dinners with guest hosts; insightful food lectures; cooking classes and demonstrations from local guest chefs and food experts; and more. A dedicated S.A.L.T. Lab will provide the setting for guests to explore culinary cultures from around the world, while a new S.A.L.T. restaurant will serve regional cuisine that will adapt according to the sailed destination.

“I’m excited to join Silversea to help the cruise line deliver on its pledge to ‘travel deeper’ by creating meaningful connections between our guests and the tastes and culinary traditions of the places we go,” said Sachs, who is directing this project. “My mission in this new role is simply an extension of the approach I’ve always taken as a food and travel writer: to apply an endless curiosity and adventurous appetite to deep-dive explorations of the ingredients, cuisine and rituals of the countries and communities we visit. There’s no better—or more enjoyable—way to engage and understand the world than through the flavors and stories of its food and wine culture and the people and personalities behind it. With our new initiative, the S.A.L.T. project, there will be no better place to explore it all than with Silversea.”
