Windstar JBF Culinary Cruise Collection
We are proud to continue our partnership with Windstar Cruises, whose fleet of small luxury ships are known for their unique voyages and intimate experiences. Together we’ve created the James Beard Collection, a series of food-themed itineraries hosted by James Beard Foundation-recognized chefs that will immerse guests in epicurean adventures, bringing together the best of travel and cuisine from around the globe.
James Beard Collection voyages will feature nightly dishes curated by the headlining chef, who will also perform cooking demonstrations, interact with guests, and lead off-ship excursions to local markets and other sights.
