MIAMI, July 25, 2019 – The Stardust Supper Club – a new dining and entertainment concept that debuted aboard the award-winning Crystal Serenity following the ship’s dramatic 2018 makeover – takes the spotlight in the 11th episode of “Crystal Cruises Presents: A Culinary Journey Hosted by Jon Ashton.” The event takes place on the first and final “Black Tie Optional” evenings of voyages of eight days or more aboard Crystal Serenity, combining an intimate dining experience and with entertainment from Crystal Serenity’s Show Band and featured vocalist, Ballroom Dance Quartet and featured violinist that are reminiscent of the Sinatra and Martin heyday.
In the episode, Chef Jon Ashton joins Crystal’s own expert culinary team to create a menu of appetizers, soup, entrees and desserts that are indulgently classic of this era. Caviar, seared beef tenderloin, Chilean sea bass, white asparagus soup and decadent chocolate dessert are all featured, along with a glimpse into the creative process of both the event’s menu and its ambiance. The assistant cruise director, Raphael Derkson, takes viewers into the ship’s stylish Stardust Club for a look at how the space is transformed for the occasion before the final dishes for the evening are revealed.
Visiting an array of locales around the world with Crystal Serenity, the “Culinary Journey” video series features local chefs, farmers and expert guides showcasing the signature dishes – and tips for preparing them – in an array of locales, taking him and viewers off the beaten paths into the heart of each place’s culinary spirit. The videos are published on Crystal’s Crystal Insider blog and Crystal Cruises’ YouTube channel.
