APT food recognised by La Chaine des Rotisseurs
APT cruise food recognised by La Chaine des Rotisseurs. APT has become the only European river cruise line to be inducted into La Chaine des Rotisseurs, one of the world’s most prestigious culinary organisations. Society membership is considered an achievement of world-class culinary acumen, said APT’s General Manager Marketing, Debra Fox. It means all 10 APT-AmaWaterways co-owned Europe riverships on the water this year are members of the Chaine des Rotisseurs.
Chartered in the 13th century, the society thrived for hundreds of years until the French Revolution brought an end to the guild system. Reborn in Paris in 1950, today membership is by invitation only. The society has grown to include professional chefs, restaurateurs and hoteliers around the world, said Ms Fox.
APT fleet’s Executive Chef, Primus Perchtold, directs the menus on every cruise. He has won multiple awards, including three gold medals at the European Championship of Culinary Art. While there is a choice of eight dining options across Aria and Concerto ships and the opportunity to indulge in champagne breakfasts, a client favourite is the onboard hot bread bakeries, where passengers enjoy the freshest of breads during the day … and night. Ms Fox said “Our aim always has been to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations, we’ve made river cruising a tailored luxury-styled experience.” JOHN POND.
