(PRESS RELEASE)_SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (October 24, 2018) – The six-course, fine-dining experience from award-winning Chef Curtis Stone at SHARE aboard Princess Cruises has been revamped with fresh menu offerings, including butter-poached chunks of Alaska King Crab and hard-roasted, double-boned Brown Butter Duroc Pork Chop. In addition, new “Crafted by Curtis” dishes on the main dining room menu are also rolling out fleetwide.
Guests dining in SHARE aboard Emerald Princess and Ruby Princess have the rare opportunity to enjoy world-class cuisine of award-winning chef and restaurateur, Curtis Stone. Born in Melbourne, Australia and trained in Michelin-starred kitchens of Marco Pierre White, Stone’s restaurants Maude and Gwen are two of Los Angeles’ most desired reservations. Now brining his expertise to SHARE, he has curated this menu comprised of artfully displayed dishes made from the finest ingredients at sea for a dining experience guests savor for years to come.
“Throughout my partnership with Princess Cruises, we’ve always worked together to create inspired dishes using a fresh approach to fine dining,” said Chef Stone. “We share a passion for bringing people together through food that creates happiness around the table. These new offerings at both SHARE and on the ‘Crafted by Curtis’ section of the main menu will continue to excite their senses, creating lifelong memories as they explore the world on their cruise.”
A sampling of new SHARE menu items, available in November, include:
Kanpachi – salt-water amberjack tuna thinly sliced and quick-cured in lime, featuring chilies, avocado and almonds
Alaska King Crab – butter poached chunks of crab with “pee-wee potato salad” and confit egg yolk
Brown Butter Duroc Pork Chop for Two – a hard roasted double-bone pork rack, with confit carrots, broccoli purée and a jus of whole grain mustard
Almond Marzipan – warm cake paired with strawberry coulis, candied almonds and crème fraiche ice cream
SHARE guests begin with an appetizer, followed by salad and handmade pasta, indulge in main courses from both sea and land, and finish with a decadent dessert. A cover charge of $29 per person includes one selection from each course. A carefully selected list of wine vintages from around the globe handpicked by Chef Stone and his personal sommelier round out the meal.
