A luxury cruise & gastronomy with Michelin star chef Atul Kochhar
Experience the White Continent with The Great Majestic Explorer and Indian gastronomy.
Twice Michelin starred Chef Atul Kochhar has unveiled the preview of his menu exclusively created for The Q Experiences, an Indian travel company which is organizing India’s first luxury cruise expedition to Antarctica in “The Great Majestic Explorer” – a sleek, gorgeous yacht, which would have 132 elegant staterooms and suites.
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.”
