So we recently wrote about the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express opening their new Bar ‘3674’ and we now bring you another great treat from the house of Belmond. The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express adds yet another feather to its cap by bringing onboard famous Michelin-star chef and director of Le Grand Vefour Restaurant in Paris, Guy Martin.
Get ready to chug this luxurious train with a fabulous new menu — a lighter and healthier menu that launched on 14 April 2016. Chef Martin along with Executive Head Chef, Christian Bodiguel are sure to tickle your luxury palate with their new Spring menu. Their dishes will have a contemporary edge, using fresh, light and the choicest ingredients. Dishes include, John Dory fillet served with celeriac purée, and cumin-infused zucchini or lobster medallions served on a bed of gnocchi and Oscietre Caviar. Chef Bodiguel’s signature dish, Charolais of Beef paired with truffle, broccoli purée and hazelnut oil is the perfect blend of favours and lightness.
‘We are thrilled to be working with Guy Martin on this special partnership. Our onboard team of expert chefs share his passion of adding new modern touches to traditional dishes and we are very much looking forward to offering guests a new culinary experience aboard the world’s most famous train this Spring.” says Pascal Deyrolle, General Manager of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
Venice Simplon-Orient-Express journeys across Europe from March to November each year. Prices start from £2,210 ($3,474) per person sharing a double cabin and includes all meals served on board.
