Con­tiki goes Gourmet

Travel Bulletin - - FOOD & WINE TRAVEL -

YOUTH tour­ing com­pa­nies are recog­nis­ing the im­por­tance of pro­vid­ing top qual­ity food of­fer­ings to their clients. In an in­ter­view with trav­el­bul­letin dur­ing his most re­cent trip Down Un­der, Con­tiki’s CEO Casper Urham­mer said trav­ellers on next year’s Euro­pean itin­er­ar­ies would be pleas­antly sur­prised to learn their menus had been com­pletely over­hauled. “Food is now be­com­ing in­creas­ingly im­por­tant to younger peo­ple,” Urham­mer ex­plained, go­ing on to say Con­tiki had pin­pointed food as one of the next big travel trends in its market. In plan­ning the re­fresh, Con­tiki sent Euro­pean Masterchef judge Thomas Cast­berg to all of its prop­er­ties in Europe to work with lo­cal teams to “lift their game” on the fare they’re serv­ing. “In all the places where we do the cooking the menus have been re­designed by a Masterchef judge,” Urham­mer said. “It’s not just down to what they’re eat­ing but how it’s served and what the story is be­hind it”.
