Now Available On Amazon.com, Princess Cruises' Cookbook Shares Priceless Culinary Knowledge

With "Courses, A Culinary Journey," Home Cooks Enjoy Cruise-Caliber Cuisine without Leaving Shore

SANTA CLARITA, CA (December 1, 2005) - The chefs aboard Princess Cruises cook for more than 30,000 passengers per day, so who better to tap for tempting, time-honored recipes and helpful culinary techniques? Princess' popular cookbook, Courses, A Culinary Journey, a collective work of recipes from 20 of its talented chefs-at-sea, has sold more than 100,000 copies on board its ships and is now available online for the first time at Amazon.com. This 224-page coffee-table cookbook is a perfect holiday gift for the kitchen apprentice, consummate chef or world traveler with a taste for culinary adventure.

"In Courses, we have included the most frequently requested dishes along with our special signature delicacies, and have shared our time-tested personal secrets on preparation and presentation," said Franz Rom, Princess' vice president of fleet operations. "So many of our passengers tell us they want to bring their culinary experience home with them and with this book, they can."

Princess, already well-known for culinary excellence and innovation, designed the book to complement its seven-continent itineraries. Pairing specific journeys with strikingly original menus, the cookbook highlights 10 intriguing destinations in a colorful travelogue format. Dramatic, full-page photography illustrates each of the 86 featured recipes. Black and white action shots, interspersed throughout the book, attest to the round-the-clock efforts of a culinary team consistently delivering delicious meals.

Many dishes reflect the culinary sensibilities of the destinations Princess serves. Included are:

  • Poached Weave of Halibut and Salmon with a Delicate Spring Leek Sauce
  • Tequila Prawns, Flamed with Mexican Tequila and Serrano Chiles over Dirty Rice
  • Vanilla Cognac Soufflé with Warm Grand Marnier Sauce

    Helpful tips on technique, ingredients and regional culinary traditions are addressed in an engaging and accessible manner.

    Rom points out that the cookbook is unique in the cruise industry for its oversized, coffee-table-style format and engaging photography. "It's not just a cookbook," he says, "it's a beautiful presentation of food and cooking that makes interesting reading for cooks and armchair travelers alike."

    "With the holiday season ahead, we're thrilled to offer Courses conveniently on Amazon.com," said Rom. "Now, it's available not only to passengers who cruise with us, but to anyone inspired by the culinary flavors of the exotic ports and gourmet cuisine served by Princess Cruises."
