Example Menu from your Onboard Chef
Food onboard Splendour is a real talking point and highlight for our guests aboard Splendour. So much so that Chef Steve has started his own personal cooking blog and recipe guide!
Local produce features highly on the days set menu, both Chef Steve and Shore Manager Jamie undertook many site visits across the area to meet local suppliers and producers.
We have included an example menu in our gallery below, though this is just a small sample – meals are frequently adapted to ensure the freshest seasonal cuisine. Guests that have joined us twice this season haven’t had the same meal, unless specifically requested!
We start each morning with Porridge, Cereals, Toast and Scottish Preserves with a selection of fruits and yogurt. Flowing Tea, Coffee and Fresh Orange Juice. A cooked breakfast follows to ensure you are ready for the days adventure.
Feeling peckish? Obviously it’s elevenses! Tea and Coffee are served around 11am with Steve’s freshly baked biscuits. Shortly followed with recipe requests.
A light lunch of Soups, Fresh Salads or Open Sandwiches. Weather permitting Splendour’s BBQ will be in action for some alfresco dinning on the upper deck.
Returning from your afternoon ashore, Chef Steve has been busily preparing afternoon tea, coffee and devilishly good cakes for your return home aboard Splendour. Skipper Iain has his firm favourite the ‘Malt Loaf’.
Pre-dinner drinks are available from the ships bar and wine is complimentary with your evening meal. Usually a two course affair, dinner will often be the freshest Argyll Seafood, Matured Argyll Hill Lamb or Beef. A highlight for many is Steve’s famous Tarbert Seafood Buffet with the freshest Crab, Lobster, Langoustines and more! All from the pristine waters of our cruising grounds. Delicious desserts follow with Sticky Toffee Pudding and Butterscotch sauce a firm favourite. Carefully balancing the days menu Steve will change the evening dessert with a hand selected Scottish Cheese board.
Before joining us aboard Splendour we ask each guest if they have any food allergies or special dietary requirements. We happily cater for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and many more. Please speak with Jamie about any special dietary requirements or allergies you may have. We want to make sure you have a memorable experience as you cruise the Scottish islands!
