Silversea Cruises has announced a new culinary program to launch in August 2020 that emphasises cuisine that is local and authentic to the regions Silverseas’ ships sail to.
Entitled ‘Sea of Land Taste’ or S.A.L.T., the program will launch alongside Silver Moon, a new all-suite vessel, and has been designed in collaboration with Adam Sachs, a multi award-winning journalist and former editor-in-chief of Saveur magazine. A three-time winner of the prestigious James Beard Journalism Award and the recipient of several travel writing awards, Sachs will use his knowledge of global cuisine to help craft guests’ culinary journeys in his role as director of S.A.L.T.
“My mission in this new role is simply an extension of the approach I’ve always taken as a food and travel writer: to apply an endless curiosity and adventurous appetite to deep-dive explorations of the ingredients, cuisine and rituals of the countries and communities we visit,” Sachs said of his new role. “There’s no better—or more enjoyable—way to engage and understand the world than through the flavours and stories of its food and wine culture and the people and personalities behind it. With our new initiative, the S.A.L.T. project, there will be no better place to explore it all than with Silversea.”
The S.A.L.T. program will be tailored according to the sailed region and will incorporate both ship-based and shoreside enrichments, including market trips, winery visits, dining experiences in regional restaurants and bars, food and wine tastings, special dinners with guest hosts, food lectures, cooking classes as well as demonstrations from local guest chefs and food experts.
A dedicated S.A.L.T. Lab will provide a space for guests to explore culinary cultures from around the world, while a S.A.L.T. restaurant will serve regional cuisine that will adapt according to the sailed destination.
