Australian Cuisine on the Regent Seven Seas Mariner Cruise Ship

  • Vic Cherikoff and Benjamin Christie have recently returned from their 8-day cruise onboard the Regent Seven Seas Mariner from Darwin to Sydney where they showcased an Australian themed cuisine event as part of the Mariner’s “Spotlight on Wine & Food Tour”.

Cruise Director, Barry Hopkins interviewed Vic and Benjamin on the ship’s in house TV channel, Mariner Today, which is a recent addition to the cruise ship. Mariner Today is hosted by Barry and begins the day by detailing events about the cruise ship and what not to miss. The show also features interviews with Cruise Staff, Guests and even the Captain. Each day the show is filmed in different locations on the ship, dependent on the focus for the day.

The interview goes for about 10 minutes and Vic and Benjamin talk about some of the unique flavours they used for the cooking classes and dinner on board the ship earlier this month.

As part of this event, Vic and Benjamin hosted a native Australian dinner (read their menu below) and cooking classes which featured selected dishes from their menu:

– Wattleseed infused beef fillet with paperbark smoked mash & riberry confit

– Paperbark Smoked Vegetable Parcel served with Bush Tomato Chutney

Guests were also able to purchase signed Dining Downunder Cookbooks, our range of herbs, spices & seasonings, sauces and Vic’s newly developed Rainforest Mist facial spray.
