Azamara®, Anthony Bourdain And The Wolfsonian-fiu Museum Hosted "an Evening Aboard The S.S. Wolfsonian"
MIAMI, Feb. 22, 2014 - Azamara, Anthony Bourdain and The Wolfsonian-FIU hosted, "An Evening Aboard the S.S. Wolfsonian with Anthony Bourdain." In conjunction with The Wolfsonian-FIU, the cruise line helped set the stage for CNN host, author and chef Anthony Bourdain to curate a unique dining experience inspired by ocean liner menus from The Wolfsonian's historic collection.
Bourdain oversaw a multi-course menu prepared by celebrity chefs Daniel Boulud (Daniel), Andrew Carmellini (The Dutch), David McMillan and Fred Morin (Joe Beef), Francois Payard (FPB), and Eric Ripert (Le Bernardin). Joining Bourdain to host the elegant affair that transported guests to a bygone era of luxurious ocean liner dining was Azamara's President and CEO Larry Pimentel, Capt. Johannes Tysse, Executive Chef Robert van Rijsbergen, and Cruise Director Eric De Gray.
Proceeds from a live auction for an exclusive voyage for two in Azamara's Club World's Owner's Suite, benefitted the Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at Florida International University and The Wolfsonian-FIU.
