Silversea Collaborates With Mirazur Restaurant for S.A.L.T. Experience

Silversea Cruises has partnered with the three Michelin-starred restaurant Mirazur, headed by Chef Mauro Colagreco, to offer guests a new culinary experience on the French Riviera.

Curated as part of Silversea’s S.A.L.T. culinary program, the experience will take the line’s guests closer to the heart of French culinary traditions in Menton, as they learn more about Mirazur’s concept. Tailor-made for Silversea’s guests, the shore experience is Mirazur’s only collaboration with a cruise line. It will be available during calls to Menton and Monte Carlo in summer 2023 and summer 2024—offered to guests sailing aboard Silver Moon and Silver Dawn, as well as Silver Nova and Silver Ray, once they are launched.

Complementing destination-specific culinary enrichments offered onboard as part of the S.A.L.T. program, besides a selection of shore excursions, Silversea’s collaboration with Mirazur will include the following:

Costed by Mirazur’s chefs, bakers and gardeners, the experience begins with a trip to the market in Menton’s old town, where suppliers will introduce guests to the regional food culture, as well as the local produce—from fresh, seasonal vegetables to distinctive cheeses. A member of the Mirazur team will guide groups of up to 12 guests through the market.

Next, travelers will visit Chef Colagreco’s sustainable and artisanal bakery, Mitron, where they will learn about ancient grains and taste a range of traditionally baked breads and pastries—produced sustainably through certified organic agriculture. Guests will visit the bake house, which contains Menton’s oldest wood oven, to meet the expert artisanal bakers, and to see first-hand how different varieties of wheat are milled daily to preserve freshness and flavor.

Guests will learn about the research being undertaken at the Sanctuaries del Mirazur, five biodynamic vegetable gardens at varying altitudes—from the sea to the mountains—that are owned by the restaurant. Here, teams of gardeners study the best conditions for 39 tomato varieties, Menton’s lemons and various vegetables. The crops yielded by the gardens form the basis of the cuisine at Mirazur, which celebrates the diversity of the region’s cuisine.

The experience concludes with a nine-course tasting menu in Mirazur’s private tasting kitchen. Participants can enjoy a sensory journey that is centered on dishes primarily sourced from the Mirazur gardens, as well as seafood, fresh from the Mediterranean.
