Food Too Pretty To Eat

That Looks So Good - I Don't Want to Eat It
Have those words ever come out of your mouth?  I suspect that they have - I know I've said them.  We've been cruising for more than 30 years now, and yet I'm always amazed by the talent that goes into food presentation on board cruise ships.   Every plate at dinner is a masterpiece in its own right, with everything placed in the exact spot and all the ingredients working together to make an appealing dish. But that is just the beginning of food presentation on a cruise ship ...

Food Art

The ship above is amazing.  It almost looks like we could sail the seven seas - all we need is a crew. During our behind the scenes Galley Tour we had the opportunity to see how food is prepared and also experience some of these works of art. This is the first in a mini-series about the talented chefs onboard Caribbean Princess.

Here we have a violin that is perched above the buffet counter.  It reminds me of art on a shelf in gift shop or gallery.

All that is missing is the sign: "Pretty to look at, pretty to hold, but if you break it, consider it sold."

Click on any of these images for a closer look.  We simply loved the time and effort that the Princess Cruises staff put into these culinary works of art.   They definitely added to the enjoyment of our cruise.
