Tall ship sailing specialist Star Clippers has introduced a series of food-themed cruises for summer 2013, featuring some of Europe's top celebrity chefs and sommeliers.
Complimentary cooking demonstrations, wine tastings and lectures will take place on selected sailings between May and October, teaching guests new skills, from cooking with chocolate to preparing the perfect smorgasbord. Each theme will reflect the region in which the ship is sailing. Demonstrations take place either in the restaurants or on the teak decks of all three ships, the 227-passenger flagship Royal Clipper and the 170-passenger sister ships, Star Clipper and Star Flyer. www.starclippers.co.uk Tel: 0845 200 6145.
