It is always a special experience to board a cruise ship even if it is only for a few hours. So it was with anticipation when we boarded Emerald Princess at dock in San Pedro.. .It was to take part at an exclusive luncheon with Celebrity Chef Curtis Stone. It was to show his new restaurant called Share, his first restaurant aboard a ship.
Our luncheon menu offered a preview of some of the new starters and entrees that have been crafted by Curtis Stone. We opened with Nduja with Duck Speck an Epi Baguette as the starter and followed with a salad called. Kanpachi Crudo. The pasta, which is made fresh daily, was Ricotta Cavatelli. Course four was soup and a very unique Lobster Bisque. Main course was Duroc Pork Chop with Toffee Cheesecake as course six and dessert. Each course was described personally by Chef Stone.
Some of the other specialties that will be on the Share Restaurant menu included Steamed Mussels, Choprizo and white wine; beef tenderlolin tips & mushroom cobbler; chicken with leek pot pie and roast pork belly.
Other members of the Emerald culinary staff were also present for the luncheon and shared in the appreciation of the attending media.
Gordon Ho, senior vice president for Princess Cruises, explained that Share Restaurant is just one of Princess' new designed for fresh culinary approaches. We left the Emerald Princess somewhat reluctantly since it was about to sail to Hawaii with out us.
