A Culinary Experience on the Yangtze
As an American-managed company recognizing the importance of the culinary experience to discerning Western travelers, Victoria Cruises has invested heavily in the training of its kitchen staff as well as the upgrading of its ingredients, placing emphasis on natural foods and healthy preparation. All food on the ship is freshly-made. Grass-fed and non-hormone meats are used, and all pastries, breads and desserts are handmade.
Chef Walter Staib
Victoria Anna is equipped with two dining rooms and two separate kitchens, in order to handle customized meal requests from passengers requiring kosher, gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan dishes (advance notice may be required for some requests). A separate à la carte dining room is available for guests staying on one of the Executive Decks and eligible China Spree travelers, providing a more exclusive atmosphere in addition to menu items which may not be offered in the main, buffet-style Dynasty Dining room.
Victoria Cruises works with Philadelphia-based Concepts By Staib, Ltd. to continually improve its culinary program. Internationally-acclaimed chef Walter Staib and his senior chefs travel to China periodically to outfit the ships as well as train and update the onboard chefs with the necessary skills and recipes to prepare high-quality Western dishes.
In addition, many of Victoria Cruises’ chefs train at the Tung Shing House in New York City, a restaurant owned by Victoria Cruises’ parent company, where they are able to further hone their culinary and communication skills.
"Our culinary program is just the icing on the cake," said Larry Greenman, manager of public relations and customer service for Victoria Cruises. "Our Executive Deck program, with all of its upgraded amenities and privileges, has become the new standard in small luxury river cruising on China's Yangtze."
