British TV star and Michelin-starred chef John Burton-Race has partnered with Vietnam’s President Cruises to design an a la carte lunch and dinner menu. Highlights of the new culinary program include filet of beef with crispy shallots, sourdough croutons, olive oil butter and beef marrow jus, loin of highland pork with pappardelle, peas, capers and rosemary cream, and, for desert, chocolate and nut ganache and poached pear with pear sabayon.

Burton-Race has been featured on television shows such as "Great British Menu," "Kitchen Criminals," "French Leave," "Return of the Chef," "I’m a Celebrity" and "Get Me Out of Here." Over the course of his career, his restaurants have earned a total of three Michelin stars. The debut of the star’s menu follows a January visit he made to Vietnam when he hosted a dinner for a special one-night cruise.

Cruise operator Lion Asia began offering sailings through President Cruises this past November. The company plans to introduce a second vessel later this year. The cruise line offers day trips, as well as two- and three-day sailings of the UNESCO-recognized Halong Bay in Vietnam. Travelers can now reach the destination in two hours from Hanoi thanks to the opening of a new highway last year.
