Oceania Cruises hosted an exclusive event in Sydney this week to showcase some of the elevated dining experiences it’s been cooking up with the recent pause in sailing.
The Dom Pérignon Experience took place at Altitude, Shangri-La Hotel’s private dining room at The Rocks, Sydney, to provide an insight into one of its innovative concepts that is part of its elevated culinary concept, The Finest Cuisine at Sea®.
Guests were treated to a five-course experience with a pairing of unique Dom Pérignon vintages with plates of eastern rock lobster in yellow curry both and coco foam, Blue Mountain black summer truffle with vialone risotto and aged parmesan; seared sashimi-style Wagyu beef, sautéed arugula, blood orange soya jus and Royal Oscietra caviar.
This was followed by a selection of Australian cheeses and a Macadamia rose parfait with poached rhubarb. Courses were paired with Dom Pérignon vintages from 2010, a 2006 Rosé and Dom Pérignon Vintage 2002 Plénitude 2.
The experience is available onboard Oceania Cruises’ two O Class vessels, Riviera and Marina.
