Episode 4 of Crystal’s ‘Culinary Journeys’ Video Series Highlights The Flavors of The Sydney Market & Barramundi
The latest flavors showcased in the 12-part video series “Crystal Cruises Presents: A Culinary Journey Hosted by Chef Jon Ashton” are courtesy of a Sydney favorite.
Following his explorations of the Australian capital and its local market and foodie culture, the celebrity chef and Crystal’s own culinary experts each present their own take on barramundi, one of the most widely served fishes in the region.
Chef Ashton takes viewers to the Sydney Fish Market, where a vast array of seafood is on offer each morning, then back aboard Crystal Serenity, where Crystal Executive Chef Werner Brenner challenged him and two Crystal Cruises’ chefs – Alfred Napotnik, Chef de Cuisine in Prego and David George, Chef de Cuisine in Waterside – to create original barramundi dishes. Each chef’s iteration of the mild white fish was later served in their respective dining venues aboard the award-winning ship, showcasing its versatility and the chefs’ diverse creative talents.
Visiting an array of locales around the world with Crystal Serenity, the “Culinary Journey” video series features local chefs, farmers and expert guides showcasing the signature dishes – and tips for preparing them – in an array of locales, taking him and viewers off the beaten paths into the heart of each place’s culinary spirit. The videos air every two weeks, published on Crystal’s Crystal Insider blog and Crystal Cruises’ YouTube channel.
