MIAMI, April 30, 2019 – Crystal Cruises has released the latest episode of its video series “Crystal Cruises Presents: A Culinary Journey Hosted by Jon Ashton,” this time exploring the creative iterations of Périgord black truffles in Perth, Australia. While the truffles are most often associated with France and Italy, Western Australia is one of the world’s largest producers of the luxurious ingredient. In Episode 5, Chef Jon Ashton visits several Perth eateries to learn and gain inspiration from the various ways local chefs incorporate the truffles into their menus.
Back aboard Crystal Serenity, Chef Ashton and Alfred Napotnik – Chef de Cuisine of the ship’s Italian specialty restaurant Prego – collaborate to create a classic gnocchi and black truffle dish. The complete video of Perth’s coastal culinary offerings and the behind-the-galley creativity aboard the award-winning ship can now be viewed on the Crystal Insider blog.
Visiting an array of locales around the world with Crystal Serenity, the “Culinary Journey” video series features local chefs, farmers and expert guides showcasing the signature dishes – and tips for preparing them – in an array of locales, taking him and viewers off the beaten paths into the heart of each place’s culinary spirit. The videos air every two weeks, published on the Crystal Insider blog and Crystal Cruises’ YouTube channel.
