Just announced, "Top Chef's" Isaac Toupe will be featured on a new video series as he competes against tastemakers in a wide variety of culinary challenges while sailing the Caribbean on Celebrity Cruises. Viewers will catch appearances from the beautiful Celebrity Reflection and its team as well as Celebrity's own Michelin-starred chef, Cornelius Gallagher. Isaac's challenges vary from whipping up world-class omelets, creating specialty cocktails, to tacking Mofongo, a traditional Puerto Rican dish.
"We are excited about this partnership as it gives our guests a peak into what it takes to develop and invent exquisite culinary creations using top quality ingredients inspired by different cultures from around the world," says Cornelius Gallagher, Associate Vice President, Food and Beverage Operations, Celebrity Cruises.
The series, which starts today, will air three new episodes every week through April 3rd. All nine episodes will be available on BravoTV.com and will highlight Celebrity Cruises.
This isn't the first time we've seen cruise lines dive into digital by partnering with larger media companies to deliver co-branded content. Carnival took a stab at this with several travel series last year. As a cruise-nut, ,we're inclined to tune into anything featuring these great ships and the people who work hard to make great vacations happen. With the popularity of "foodie" programming it should be as fun to watch as it will be to try out new dishes the next time we get to sail Celebrity.
