Since reports of sailing restrictions and lockdowns in 2020, Viking Cruises has been one of the foremost cruise lines in offering invigorating virtual experiences for their loyal and prospective guests.
Viking.tv showcases experiential programming that passengers have access to onboard their respective cruises, on deck levels or their cabin TV. Its culturally-focused subject matter will highlight appearances by the Viking executives and crew and subjects relating to its at-sail and at port ventures, plus live video of happenings from around the world.
The food and wine episodes are especially intriguing for travelers who love to experience local cuisines. Below are some delightful examples.
French soufflés with Alexandra
In this episode of Foodie Fridays, we are joined in the kitchen by Alexandra Beucler, a valued member of the Viking family who resides and works in Los Angeles. Although she currently lives in California, Alexandra was born and raised in France. Alexandra draws on her extensive knowledge of French cuisine to share its history while showing us how to make a cheese soufflé and a chocolate soufflé. Bon appétit!
