Guests sailing with Celebrity Cruises will now be able to indulge in the culinary world’s finest delicacy – white truffles.

The cruise line recently acquired two of the extremely rare and luxurious mushrooms at the World White Truffle Auction, and has plans to showcase them at exclusive dining events.

Celebrity Cruises Executive Chef, John Suley, participated in the invitation-only event on behalf of the cruise brand.

Chef Suley and his team will use the highly coveted truffles acquired at the auction to create an exclusive dining experience onboard Celebrity Equinox during a 10-night Caribbean cruise departing on Friday, November 21. Truffle-themed dinners will be available onboard Celebrity ships for select Caribbean sailings in late November and early December.

Plus, the winning delicacies will also be featured at the James Beard Foundation’s legendary James Beard House in New York on Monday, November 24, for a special truffle-and-wine-pairing event.

“Our guests can enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience with our decadent white truffle menu, paired with exquisite fine wines. We will be creating beautiful, yet simple, mouthwatering dishes, from wild mushroom risotto with delicately thin slices of the prized truffles, to indulgent desserts topped with white chocolate and truffle Chantilly cream,” Suley said.
