The celebration of Oceania Cruises’ 10th anniversary continues on
the Scandinavian Serenade sailing
onboard Marina. As we sailed into
Copenhagen this weekend, Chef Alexis Quaretti created a magnificent celebratory
brunch. The centerpiece was a chocolate castle and a cake to commemorate this
milestone anniversary. You will note that there were already a couple pieces of
cake missing by the time I took the photo. I am not an early riser, and
apparently some of the early birds have sweet tooths.
The chefs created a spectacular feast for us. There were a number of
carving stations, making it particularly challenging to select my entrée from
the many appealing options. I finally settled on the salmon in puff pastry with
spinach mousse, and I was very pleased with my choice. Since we were
breakfasting, I felt obligated to include some eggs with my meal, so I doubled
up on the béarnaise sauce.
It is also important to eat six servings of fruit and vegetables
each day, so I toughed it out and had two large servings of this luscious fruit
For this celebratory event, the chefs not only created beautiful
dishes but also sculpted culinary masterpieces to adorn the Grand Dining Room.
You would be amazed at what these talented chefs can create from sugar and
fruit – true works of art.
It was a brunch befitting a 10th anniversary celebration and a
wonderful start to another day exploring the wonders of Scandinavia.
