spice it up

Crystal Symphony

After the season of indulgence, why not spice things up for your taste buds aboard Crystal Symphony’s South American Food & Wine sailing in February? Escape winter’s chill while savoring the red hot flavors of South America.  Departing from Buenos Aires and sailing to Miami, let the culinary Latin locals lead the way.

Neriton Vasconcelos, owner and head chef of The Galley, one of the most exclusive restaurants in São Paulo; Matias Kyriazis & Estefania di Benedetto, owners and chefs at Paraje Arevalo in Buenos Aires;  and Eugenio Jardim,  Brazilian native and wine director at San Francisco’s Jardiniere with a reputation for seeking out unique and exciting vintages will all be aboard for tastings, demos, and special menus.

To wash it all down, “Modern Mixologist” Tony Abou-Ganim will provide onboard cocktail making sessions with tips and techniques on creating local concoctions.  Travelers can keep up the flavors off the ship with a cooking lesson at a local Brazilian restaurant led by Crystal chefs.

We recommend a tango lesson to burn those extra calories!
