Holland America Line’s Culinary Council met in New York for a two-day meeting last week aboard the ms Eurodam. During the meeting, the council discussed current culinary trends and shared information and ideas for Holland America’s cuisine for the upcoming year.
After the meeting, an interactive cooking demonstration was held in the ship’s state-of-the-art Culinary Arts Center. Holland America Line’s Master Chef and Culinary Council Chairman Rudi Sodamin, along with council members Jonnie Boer, David Burke, Jacques Torres, and Charlie Trotter, each showcased how to prepare one of their specialty dishes which were later served during a gourmet lunch to media and travel industry guests in the elegant Pinnacle Grill restaurant.
The first Culinary Council meeting was held in Fort Lauderdale in 2011 aboard the ms Noordam.
