The science of salt is fascinating. It’s far more than just a seasoning. Salt adds flavor – essential flavor – to our food. It can intensify aromas, balance tastes, make meat taste juicier, rids vegetables of their excess water, and preserve food for months or even years. So it was unsurprising that this little rock with the big taste was an inspiration behind Silverseas' newest immersive culinary program. Available on Silver Moon and Silver Dawn S.A.L.T. will intensify your voyage, flavor your journey, balance your cruise, and preserve your holiday memories for months, and yes, hopefully, years.
WHAT EXACTLY IS THE SILVERSEA S.A.L.T. PROGRAM?
S.A.L.T. is simple. It stands for Sea And Land Taste and is the opportunity for all travelers on the new ship Silver Moon – and soon to come, Silver Dawn – to experience the very lifeblood of their destination. Conceived by Adam Sachs, former Editor in Chief of Saveur Magazine, S.A.L.T. gives Silversea guests a chance to travel deeper through engaging experiences and local food culture. The three-time James Beard Journalism Award-winning food, lifestyle, and travel writer really knows his food! Balancing onshore experiences, with expert knowledge with on-board hands-on activities with food culture with taste sensations that will blow your mind, S.A.L.T. is far, far more than just a concept.
S.A.L.T. SHORE EXCURSIONS
Selected shore excursions on all Silver Moon cruises benefit from a culinary focus. This means you could be traveling into the hinterland of Heraklion in order to experience the heart and soul of Greek organic cooking. Or delve into the secrets of a working organic farm in the hills of Paros. Or meeting with a native Ecuadorian chef at the fashionable street food market in Guayaquil. Or lunching with a vineyard owner in Sicily, and enjoy their homegrown wines during a lavish lunch with a view of Mount Etna.
These in-depth and informative shore excursions are accompanied by food experts, who are adept at explaining the intricacies of foreign cuisine. S.A.L.T. offers the curious cruiser so many options, the only thing you need to do is choose. Never has a cruise line offered such an in-depth, holistic way of visiting their destination. Do one or do them all.
S.A.L.T. ONBOARD DINING
The idea behind S.A.L.T. is that it offers all guests aboard a chance to travel with taste. Take a trip to the S.A.L.T. Bar and Kitchen to taste a plethora of international food dishes, inspired by your destination. Local recipes made with local products are given a Silversea stylish twist. The S.A.L.T. Kitchen (in place of Indochine on sister ship Silver Muse) is a dedicated dining venue and will take your tastebuds on a journey through the Greek Isles, the South American plains, the colorful coasts of the Caribbean, or the food heritage of Atlantic Europe. But S.A.L.T. doesn’t just begin and end on your plate – visit the S.A.L.T. Bar, located next to the Kitchen on deck 4, for regionally inspired cocktails, made with locally produced quality spirits by enthusiastic and knowledgeable bar staff. These master mixologists are far more than the average barman. These are people who want you to understand how to savor a cocktail, how to let a local whiskey rest on your palette before swallowing it, how the botanicals in a locally made gin infuse and affect the taste.
S.A.L.T. ONBOARD EXPERIENCES
S.A.L.T. stretches further than just your taste buds. Silver Moon’s S.A.L.T. Lab is an interactive cooking laboratory that allows guests to get hands-on experience of local recipes in a professional kitchen. Small groups of guests are invited to take part in shared cooking sessions where they will not only learn how to cook the recipe but will also understand the food heritage of each ingredient. And yet still S.A.L.T. goes even further! Lectures and live cooking demonstrations take place regularly in the Venetian Lounge, allowing larger groups of guests to see how deep the connection between food and destination really is.
