Travelling on Britannia? Expand your culinary horizons and enjoy on-board masterclasses and hosted dinners with the godfather of British cooking

Marco Pierre White

From this September the Cookery Club has a brand new patron

The Cookery Club on board Britannia is a hands-on cooking school at sea where you can make your own masterpieces with help from the best in the business. And from this September it has a brand new patron – the godfather of modern British cooking, Marco Pierre White.


Already one of our Food Heroes and the creator of our exquisite Gala Dinner menus, Marco will now bring his unique flair for sensational food to The Cookery Club. And to mark his new role as patron, he has created a whole range of new masterclasses and hosted dinners.


Stepping into The Cookery Club for a masterclass with Marco is the ultimate culinary experience. Marco says: ‘Holidays are perfect for spending time with family and friends, and cooking is a great way to bring loved ones together. In my classes, everyone can learn something to take home and share. It’s all about making beautiful and delicious dishes with big flavours, including the best gravy you’ll ever taste.’


Guests can learn how to make some of Marco’s best-loved classic dishes, as well as new favourite recipes inspired by Britannia’s ports of call and their local ingredients. For more destination-focused fun, Marco also hosts selected shore excursions, so why not join him for a foodie exploration ashore?


As well as getting hands-on in The Cookery Club, you can also stand back and watch the master at work at an unforgettable hosted dinner. ‘My hosted dinners are a special experience,’ Marco explains. ‘Everyone gathers around the cooking station as I bring all the ingredients together. We spend about three hours cooking and eating together, while I share my tips and show people how they can get the perfect results every time to really impress their friends and family.’


Even when Marco’s not on board, guests can still get the inside track on his recipes and techniques, as other expert chefs from The Cookery Club lead Unmistakably Marco Classes and Unmistakably Marco Dinners. These sessions are no less intimate and informative, and have been created by Marco to share his culinary approach.


The Cookery Club team also hosts many other inspiring classes and Chef’s Table dinners. Whether you’re a beginner looking to gain skills and confidence, or an accomplished cook keen to get to grips with our state-of-the-art workstations, The Cookery Club has something to offer you. There are specially tailored family classes, too. Whichever you choose, every session ends with time to tuck in and enjoy the delicious food you’ve created.
