Gastronomy Galore aboard a Hotel Barge – Gourmet Cuisine, Fine Wines and Delicious Cheeses

Gourmet CuisineWhether you’re a gourmet chef, wine guru, or cheese connoisseur – or simply love to sit back, relax, and indulge yourself in this refined type of cuisine while an aficionado in each area shares his expertise, you’ll find that dining aboard a hotel barge is right up your alley.  Take a few minutes to read through this article, watch the video, and get a better understanding of how upscale dining aboard a hotel barge is when you travel with PerryGolf.

The classic traditions of French and International cuisine are an unforgettable highlight of our hotel barge cruises.  Each morning you’ll wake up to newly baked breads, buttery croissants, and a variety of fresh pastries from the local patisserie.  Together with the aroma of fresh coffee brewing, enjoying your breakfast on deck is the perfect way to begin you day.

Fine WinesLuncheon, often enjoyed on the sun deck, will be a colorful arrangement of salads, pâtes, savory quiches and of course, a selection of cheeses, all accompanied by an excellent choice of wines from the barge cellar.

Dinner is the culinary highlight of each day. Served by candlelight, each course is a delicious creation, complemented by fine wines. Your chef will use the freshest ingredients, bought from the wonderful local markets, and pick herbs from the small on-board herb garden to produce wonderful regional and national dishes that are full of flavor.

Our hotel barge trips are not only fun, relaxing, and romantic, but are also educational.  Whether this is a new experience or not, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about the cuisine, wines, and area from your Chef, Captain, and Tour Guide.  The epicurean cuisine and overall experience will of course vary, depending on the trip.

Cheese BoardFor example, in the French experience regional specialties range from a Filet d’Agneau au Basilic to Magret de Canard to Poulet à L’Estragon.  For the wine gurus out there, the wine cellar offers a very impressive selection – to name just a few: Chateau de la Saule 2005, Domaine Corsin, Pouilly Fuisse, Domaine Laroche, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue.  Don’t forget the cheeses – there’s no better way to complement an excellent, aged bottle of wine with a variety such as these: Aisy Cendré, Bouton de Culotte, Epoisses, and Ami du Chambertin.

On the other hand, in the British Isles experience you’ll see regional specialties varying from a Munro of marinated Salmon to Pheasant breast with Horseradish sauce to Navarin of Lamb with fine herbs.  Expect an equally impressive selection of wines, but also an assortment of single malt whiskies and 80 Shilling Ales.  Be sure to pair these with Scottish Brie, Whisky Chase, Stratdown Blue, or Orkney smoked!

Fairmont Savoy Hotel, London

A while ago I added a blog about the refurbishment of the famous Savoy Hotel on The Strand in London.  I am delighted to report that the hotel opened its doors on Sunday the 10th of October 2010.  The 10/10/10 was projected by numerologists as a very prodigious day for romance, new projects and art – what better day to open a hotel with links to the Edwardian and Art Deco era and all its romance!

Bulgari – A New Luxury Hotel for London

Bulgari – a familiar name to the ladies for exclusive jewellery and exotic perfume (I am lucky enough to have a striking amber box on my dressing-table) – are to build an equally luxurious boutique hotel in Knightsbridge, London.  Influenced by the company’s history as silversmiths to the very rich and famous, the hotel will have silver as the main theme and has been designed on the same lines as the original Bulgari hotel in Milan, Italy and by the same designer.

The hotel will have 78 rooms including 6 luxurious apartments, and will be managed by Ritz-Carlton.   The new project, overlooking Knightsbridge Green, is to be started soon and is expected to open at the end of 2011.  Joining the newly opened Fairmont Savoy and shortly-to-be opened Four Seasons Park Lane, the Bulgari will offer the very latest 5* plus luxury.
