Default New Chef for Allure

After hosting an eight week-long contest, which culminated with five intense hours in the competition kitchens at The Culinary Institute of America, Royal Caribbean International has found the next chef to lead the kitchen of the signature restaurant onboard Allure of the Seas. Maureen "Molly" Brandt of Stillwater, Minn. has landed a one-year paid contract to be the Chef de Cuisine of 150 Central Park onboard Allure of the Seas.

After her entry video was selected as the "fan favorite" in the consumer voting portion of the contest, Brandt went on to impress the judges at the Final Challenge by serving up a menu consisting of

Chilled Lobster with fennel, carrots, citrus, caviar and tempura battered lobster mitt; Provencal Lamb Loin with Dijon potato puree, ratatouille, pattypan squash and olive tapenade; and Pistachio Cake with whipped rosewater crème fraiche and carbonated raspberries.

Does that sound delicious enough?

I would think that I was in heaven, if I had been served that meal. 8)

And to think I am having hamburgers tonight. I can't wait to make my reservations for the Allure 150 Central Park, for our cruise next June. Might be a good choice for our anniversary night dinner.

Interview with Maureen Brandt, new chef at 150 Central Park on Allure of the Seas | Royal Caribbean Blog

Here is an interview with her. I have to say that I really like her recipe ideas. With most chefs I find I like about 75% of what they say they specialize in, but with her it is almost 100%



Here is her homepage with a menu of her favorite dishes:
