A Taste of de Librije on Rotterdam

Culinary Council Member Johnnie Boer recently hosted a special luncheon on Rotterdam with Master Chef and Culinary Council Chairman Rudi Sodamin to celebrate ‘A Taste of de Librije’ in the Pinnacle Grill.

The lunch consisted of items from the “Taste of De Librije” menu, a five-course dinner served once each cruise exclusively aboard Rotterdam. De Librije is Boer’s Michelin-rated restaurant in Zwolle, Netherlands. As part of the alternative dining option on Rotterdam, the Pinnacle Grill is transformed — service staff wear the uniform livery from De Librije, the restaurant’s table setup is replicated and the wine list highlights a selection of labels from the Lady De Librije collection. Sodamin and Traveling Corporate Executive Chef John Mulvaney helped orchestrate the event.

The four-course menu prepared consisted of “Oysters on the Beach” (foie gras, oyster and micro greens); seared North Sea cod with speck ham (served with coconut foam and lemon grass); duo of lamb loin and crusted lamb neck (served with lentil sprouts, watercress, carrot coulis and lamb jus reduction), and deconstructed apple pie (served with vanilla gelato and Chantilly-style cream).
