The Celebrity Chef Will Return to Crystal for a Mouthwatering Global Tour
You may have had the pleasure of meeting celebrity Chef Jon Ashton aboard a Crystal voyage and, even better, sampled his signature dishes including his very popular cookie of the day that he’s shared on numerous voyages and during cooking demos and workshops. In fact, Chef Ashton recently sailed on Crystal Symphony and chronicled the ship’s many wonderful culinary offerings.
You might also recognize him from cooking segments on NBC’s Today and The Tonight Show, where his warmth and personality are nearly as inviting as his entrees. Whether or not you are familiar with his impressive menu of culinary accomplishments and accessible recipes, we are delighted to introduce him again on The Crystal Insider.
Jon – a passionate foodie and traveler who recommends singing while cooking and getting creative with recipe rules – is teaming up with Crystal’s own talented chefs and wine experts for a video series called “A Culinary Journey with Crystal Cruises Hosted by Chef Jon Ashton,” filmed by Jon Ashton productions and exploring the cuisine of various destinations and the global culinary offerings found aboard Crystal’s ships. Sailing on Crystal Serenity’s Grand Continental Odysseys World Cruise, Jon will feature local chefs, farmers and guides in several ports of call – along with in-depth exploration of Crystal’s own culinary world – and share his learnings with guests and viewers.
The cuisine, and the traditions that surround it, are often what bring new destinations to life as we travel the globe, as food is the heart of so many cultures. From Australia and New Zealand to South Africa and Crystal’s own Michelin-inspired cuisine, join Chef Jon Ashton and Crystal culinary team for a delicious adventure.
You’ll find Chef Jon’s delectable dispatches here on the Crystal Insider over the next several months, so stay tuned!
