Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - CRUISING -

RIVER: Food­ies and wine lovers are spoilt for choice when cruis­ing on Europe’s rivers – every coun­try you can name has hun­dreds of re­gional dishes and wine va­ri­eties to sam­ple as you sail through them. There are nu­mer­ous cruises for all sorts of con­nois­seurs but Scenic is the first line to of­fer cook­ing classes on board its river ships. Culi­nary schools on ocean-go­ing ships are in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar, so Scenic Culi­naire is right on trend. French cook­ing classes for up to 10 pas­sen­gers are held sev­eral times per cruise on Scenic’s Bordeaux and Rhône itin­er­ar­ies, fea­tur­ing in­gre­di­ents you will have bought ear­lier with the chef. Af­ter­wards, you get to savour your cre­ations. See scenic.com.au, phone 0800 441 611.

OCEAN: Aus­tralian best-sell­ing cook­book au­thor Lyn­dey Mi­lan is host­ing her third Gourmet Western Mediter­ranean cruise in Oc­to­ber, on board Celebrity Con­stel­la­tion. Lyn­dey will lead tours to some of her favourite foodie places in Europe, in­clud­ing fab­u­lous markets in Spain, Italy and Cor­sica, local vine­yards and restau­rants. As her catch­phrase is “hos­pi­tal­ity of the table”, you’ll have lots of fun while soak­ing up valu­able in­sider tips. See trav­el­rite.com.au.
