Demonstrations offer foolproof recipes and expert tips
from the popular TV show
Seattle, Wash., Jan. 14, 2019 — From foodie newbies to seasoned
cooks, Holland America Line is encouraging guests to embrace their love of
cooking alongside the experts at America's Test Kitchen with five new shows
starting in January 2019. The new 45-minute presentations — covering everything
from tacos and takeout to dinner for two and sweet treats — join the 14 current
shows and feature a mix of video, instruction and live recipe demonstrations.
All Holland America Line ships (except Maasdam) feature America's Test Kitchen
venues that replicate the set where the prominent "America's Test Kitchen"
television shows are recorded for broadcast on public television stations nationwide.
The onboard cooking shows on every cruise are hosted by Holland America Line
chefs trained by America's Test Kitchen culinary experts and, like the TV
shows, combine thoroughly tested recipes with practical tips on everything from
how to select fresh fruits and vegetables to how to use kitchen knives safely
"Holland America Line guests are knowledge seekers, foodies and learners, and
our America's Test Kitchen shows really resonate with them — which is why
they're wildly popular and draw standing-room-only crowds," said Orlando
Ashford, Holland America Line's president. "We're excited to expand on the
already exceptional menu of shows offered by America's Test Kitchen to include
some fun topics that easily transition to the home kitchen."
New America's Test Kitchen shows aboard Holland America Line ships:
- Sweet and Fruity Desserts: The naturally sweet, tart
flavors of apples and raspberries take center stage in two knockout
desserts: apple crisp and cheese blintzes with raspberry sauce.
- Dinner Classics for Two: Learn our secrets for perfect
chicken marsala, rice pilaf and warm chocolate fudge cakes to make an
elegant meal for two.
- Mediterranean Medley: This easy weeknight meal is an
assortment of dishes from countries along the Mediterranean, including
restaurant-style hummus and tender lamb meatballs with couscous and yogurt
- Serious Tacos: Elevate your tacos with two new
recipes: shredded chicken tacos braised in a deeply flavored sauce of
chilies, tomatoes and spices; and easy (and crispy) shrimp tacos.
- Make Your Own Takeout: Forget about ordering takeout
favorites like pad thai and scallion pancakes. Learn how to make your own
authentic versions at home with test kitchen tips.
The five new cooking shows join a collection of 14 demonstrations, including
Meatless Monday Meals, Everything Salmon, Flavors of the Mediterranean, New
Italian Favorites, We Love Chocolate, Getting to Know Chiles, Salad for Dinner,
Asian Dumplings, Tapas Party, Steakhouse Dinner, Blue Ribbon Breakfasts, Beyond
Pasta, Lunch for a Rainy Day and Southern Snacking.
In addition to the shows, Holland America Line guests have 24-hour access to
episodes of "America's Test Kitchen" and "Cook's Country" television programs
in their staterooms.
