Cooking School on Silversea Cruises


On select voyages (19 of them through 2012), Silversea guests can experience a unique cooking school concept at the first Relais & Châteaux L’École des Chefs at Silver Shadow dessertsea. 

A tantalising list of culinary events has been designed exclusively for Silversea by Relais & Châteaux. Witness culinary vision and creativity up close with an exciting array of cooking classes hosted by Silversea’s Culinary Trainer, Chef David Bilsland.


  • Cooking Demonstrations— Watch the chef at work creating his favourite dishes, which are then paired with the perfect wine by the head sommelier.
  • Lunch & Learn — Join a small group of fellow epicureans at this intimate cooking and lunching event. The chef will demonstrate preparation of your appetiser, main course and dessert, serving each course while preparing the next.
  • Market to Plate — Embark on a market tour to shop for fresh ingredients that will later be skilfully transformed into masterpieces of regional specialities — either during a cooking class on board or at an actual Relais & Châteaux property. This unique shoreside event and Slow Food experience is offered in select ports only.
  • Cooking Competitions — Guests will be entertained and educated by inspiring cooking demonstrations that showcase the very best in culinary finesse.

Plus there’s all the great dining to be had onboard, from casual to formal.
