Buon Appetito on Italian Food and Wine Gold Lunch Cruise





As the Italians say, Buon Appetito, and eat you can on Captain Cook Cruises Gold Lunch cruise, VINO BOATO, set to the spectacular background of Sydney Harbour. A six-course celebration of rustic Italian food accompanied by a selection of authentic Italian wines, VINO BOATO departs Sunday 23 June 2019 and is a must for all lovers of fine Italian food and wine.

VINO BOATO is the next cruise in the magnificent series of Gold Lunch seasonal cruises. Each month is a different, tantalizing themed menu featuring a mouth-watering six courses that re-envision classic favourites while introducing new taste sensations paired with sophisticated wines.

The Gold Lunch experience begins with a welcome Bellini cocktail before an indulgent six course Italian feast is served.

Canapés include a Chef’s selection of mini tasteful bites of zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta and truffle mushroom and parmesan arancini. Delight in an Antipasto plate of shaved prosciutto, coppa and cacciatore salami with provolone, pecorino pepato cheese and Sicilian olives served with crusty bread. Enjoy an entrée of Crab ravioli with white bisque, and clear the palette with a Limoncello sorbet before a scrumptious main course of Arrosto Misto – pork, game and Italian sausage, mixed roast with white bean and parmigiano mash. This amazing lunch ends with the classic delectable Tiramisu dessert.

The six courses are teamed with a premium selection of Italian wines including Santa Cristina Rosato, Freycinet Pinot Grigio, Fattoria LA Braccesca Sabazio Rosso Di Montepulciano Sangiovese and Cantina Viticoltori Senesi Arentini Chianti Riserva.

VINO BOATO will be hosted by Captain Cook Cruises in partnership with Samuel Smith & Son, a family owned fine wine merchant established in 1923.
