Market trips, tastings, lectures, classes
S.A.L.T. will be tailored according to the region sailed and will incorporate ship 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 other enhancements.
A dedicated S.A.L.T. Lab will provide the setting for exploring 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.
S.A.L.T. will make authentic and local cuisine available to all passengers with a holistic journey of culinary discovery that extends throughout the cruise, on board and ashore, through curated experiences.
Sachs will use his wealth of experience to help craft these culinary journeys. A three-time winner of the James Beard Journalism Award and the recipient of several travel writing awards, Sachs has published his work in many leading newspapers and magazines.
Exploring culinary traditions of the destinations
'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,' Sachs said. '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,' he continued.
Further details are to come.
