With just weeks to go until the launch of new ships Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden, P&O Australia have taken a trip down memory lane to celebrate the 5th anniversary of its first celebrity chef restaurant at sea, Salt Grill, releasing a new YouTube video series which aims to capture the “food revolution” currently taking place aboard the P&O Australia fleet.
The short video – which was released earlier today on the cruise line’s dedicated YouTube channel – stars celebrity chef and restaurateur Luke Mangan, as well as P&O Australia’s Senior Vice President, Sture Myrmell.
During the video, the duo chat about the origins of P&O’s first at-sea celebrity restaurant, with Mangan stating that taking his ‘Salt Grill’ restaurant to the sea was one of the best decisions he has ever made.
Mangan said: “I think Salt Grill aligns with P&O because we were after freshness, creativeness and simplicity, and we’ve got the best ingredients and beautiful dining spaces.”
“We had the same vision – we wanted to have the best restaurant at sea.”
The Salt Grill restaurant has become a much-loved dining favourite since its launch in 2010, serving a delicious array of locally sourced seafood among other contemporary dishes. Mangan’s dining concept will be extended to P&O’s new ships, Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden, when they’re launched later this year – something Myrmell states will help keep P&O at the forefront of modern, at-sea dining in Australia.
He said: “Food is the main driver of satisfaction when people are travelling. That’s why it’s important that we have really top-notch offerings onboard – and that’s where Luke’s restaurant comes in”
“P&Os food revolution is something we’re really excited about. It’s about stepping away from the traditional and creating choice and variety.”
In the run up to the launch of Aria and Eden, P&O has said it will release a further four videos in celebration of its continuing culinary revolution. To keep up to date with the forthcoming videos, consider subscribing to P&O Australia’s YouTube channel.Book a P&O Cruise Today
