Windstar Cruises Strengthens Culinary Partnership with the James Beard Foundation

Windstar Cruises and James Beard Foundation Resumes and Strengthens Culinary Partnership

Windstar Cruises has renewed and strengthened its culinary relationship with the James Beard Foundation as the culinary organization's "Official Cruise Line."

The James Beard Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to celebrating, supporting and elevating American food workers, as well as pushing for a better standard of good food in the country, anchored in talent, equity and sustainability. Windstar notes that values of the Foundation align with its own commitment to fresh and local epicurean experiences around the world.

Both Windstar and the James Beard Foundation have been in partnership for the past five years, and this new partnership extends until 2025. The partnership includes three themed cruises per year hosted by a James Beard Foundation-affiliated chef beginning in 2022, with more details, including dates and chefs, to be announced in the future.

The themed cruises are set to include chef demonstrations, as well as a hosted four-course dinner. For each of the themed cruises, chefs will provide recipes for the sailing which will also be featured on Windstar’s menus across its fleet and sailing regions. The partnership will also includes a variety of events and cross-marketing promotions, as well as sponsorship status for the James Beard Awards in 2021.

“The long-term partnership is a result of past successes of the unique travel-culinary program, which hand-picks acclaimed culinary experts to share their knowledge of cuisines of the world with travelers, and showcases exclusive recipes on sailings across Windstar’s fleet of six elegant yachts,” further explains Windstar President Christopher Prelog.

“After so much time eating in our homes, we’re excited to travel and taste the best the world has to offer again. We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Windstar allowing us to pair James Beard Foundation-affiliated chefs with sailings to some of the world’s most delectable destinations,” says Kris Moon, President and COO of the James Beard Foundation.
