Culinary Star Power on Holland America
Holland America Line is amplifying the star power of the culinary offerings aboard its fleet of 14 ships, including the line's newest ship Nieuw Statendam. Chef Ethan Stowell — whose highly acclaimed restaurants include Tavolàta, How to Cook a Wolf and Staple & Fancy Mercantile — has joined Holland America's Culinary Council, an elite team already including Master Chef Rudi Sodamin and international chefs Jonnie Boer, David Burke, Elizabeth Falkner and Jacques Torres. Chef Stowell will work collaboratively with the team to bring the unique flavours of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest on board Holland America's ships cruising the region. As well, all Holland America ships will feature menu items from Stowell including a signature appetizer and main course on each cruise's special Culinary Council menu.
