Starting on 9th of December this year, the liner will sail from Ushuaia, Argentina. ‘The White Continent’ is an 11 day trip curated by The Q Experiences, carrying 200 travelers only, to Antarctica – across the Drake Passage into the Land of Ice.

To ensure a superior gastronomic experience to the travelers aboard the luxury ship, Kochhar will be curating the finest of Indian regional cuisine and vegan cuisine on board – this is a first as no other ship on polar waters offers Indian cuisine.

Vegetarian specialties like Rajma chawal tikki along with non-vegetarian delicacy like Coronation chicken Tartine, and his signature desserts like carrot Baklava and white chocolate brownie will feature on the menu.

Kochhar said: “The idea of cooking in such extreme places is always challenging. My team has tried to incorporate a combination of aspirational food to some real home style food. We want our country people to have a great time while in Antarctica, but still fulfill their desire to have a great Indian meal on the cruise journey.”

Vasim Shaikh, Founder of The Q Experiences, said: “We are delighted to share the exquisite cuisine of celebrated Chef Atul Kochhar on our maiden journey to Antarctica. It is a pleasure to have Atul working with our team and presenting a handcrafted Indian and vegan menu during the trip.”
