I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Ama Here!
1st December 2015

Twelve celebrities have been enduring all sorts of trials and tribulations in the Australian jungle over the past two weeks, and all for our entertainment. Along the way, many a bug has been eaten or blended into a ‘delicious’ cocktail to be swallowed in order to earn meal stars and now the show is in its final week.

AmaWaterways, however, have their own idea of unique dining experiences, offering ‘Bites and Sights’ excursions in a number of different European river cruise destinations. These are aimed at helping you learn about the local cuisine and allowing you to get your hands dirty and make some of it yourself.

Waffling On In Belgium

Waffles

On their Tulip Time cruise along the Belgian and Dutch Waterways, you will have to chance to sample three things that Belgium arguably does better than anywhere else. Whilst the ship docks in Antwerp you will be taken to various locations where the beer, chocolate and waffles are second to done. Whether you like your waffles chewy or crispy and your beer blond or wheat, there will be many different options to try during your visit.

Serbian Supper In Novi Sad

Serbian Stew

During AmaWaterways’ 7-night Gems of Southeast Europe itinerary, there will be plenty of highlights for you to look forward to. However, wannabe chefs will certainly enjoy their time in the Serbian city of Novi Sad, as there will be an opportunity to have a go at recreating some local specialities. On this Danube river cruise you’ll learn how to make a traditional stew known as Srem Kotlic, taste a dish called sufnudle (a cross between gnocchi and potato croquets) and learn all about other delicacies from the Vojvodina region.

Paprika Preparation In Hungary

Paprika

This is another itinerary along the Danube, entitled the Legendary Danube River Cruise. Throughout the journey, you will visit places such as Nuremberg and Vienna, but it is during your time in Budapest that you will be able to get in the kitchen. Goulash is Hungary’s national dish and here you will get to prepare, cook and then devour your own version. But first, you will need a lesson in just how important paprika is in Hungarian cooking.

Baking Baguettes in France

Boulangerie

Producing a good French baguette is an art form, but once you return from your Rhone river cruise with AmaWaterways you will be a connoisseur. The perfect technique for folding, scoring and shaping this iconic bread will be taught to you as you make your way through Provence, dropping in at a local boulangerie (bakery) to put your skills to the test.

It’s safe to say that all of these culinary excursions are a great way to get to know the cultures of each destination. And you’ll be able to enjoy much more than basic rations every step of the way. If you would like to book your place on any of these AmaWaterways river cruises, contact our team today.
