A new six-course, fine-dining experience from award-winning Chef Curtis Stone is now available at SHARE aboard Princess Cruises.
The restaurant is featured aboard Emerald Princess and Ruby Princess and the refreshed menu comprises of artfully displayed dishes made from the finest ingredients at sea.
This includes mouth-watering dishes like butter-poached chunks of Alaskan King Crab and hard-roasted, double-boned Brown Butter Duroc Pork Chop. The menu also has wine pairings handpicked by Chef Stone and his personal sommelier.
Born in Melbourne, Australia and trained in Michelin-starred kitchens of Marco Pierre White, Chef Stone’s restaurants Maude and Gwen are two of Los Angeles’ most desired reservations.
“Throughout my partnership with Princess Cruises, we’ve always worked together to create inspired dishes using a fresh approach to fine dining,” said Chef Stone.
“We share a passion for bringing people together through food that creates happiness around the table. These new offerings at both SHARE and on the ‘Crafted by Curtis’ section of the main menu will continue to excite their senses, creating lifelong memories as they explore the world on their cruise.”
A sampling of the new menu will be available from November, including:
Kanpachi – salt-water amberjack tuna thinly sliced and quick-cured in lime, featuring chilies, avocado and almonds
Alaska King Crab – butter poached chunks of crab with “pee-wee potato salad” and confit egg yolk
Brown Butter Duroc Pork Chop for Two – a hard roasted double-bone pork rack, with confit carrots, broccoli purée and a jus of whole grain mustard
Almond Marzipan – warm cake paired with strawberry coulis, candied almonds and crème fraiche ice cream
In addition, new Crafted by Curtis dishes on the main dining room menu are also rolling out fleetwide. The new options include Steamed Mussels, Chorizo and White Wine, Beef Tenderloin Tips and Mushroom Cobbler. These new dishes join guest favourites Chicken and Leek Pot Pie and Roasted Pork Belly.
Australian and New Zealand cruisers will be able to experience the new menu closer to home, with just under a year to go until Ruby Princess makes her maiden arrival in Australia for the line’s biggest ever Australian and New Zealand season.
