Cunard (on the QM2) had something called Chef's Galley. The chef
prepared a meal in front of the crowd at a location in the buffet that
was designed specifically for that purpose. There was a different theme
each evening. French one night. Italian another. Asian a third...
etc. And (at least back then, when we went) it was free.

After the chef prepared the meal, the tables (I think there were 6 of
them) were served the same meal, though prepared in a kitchen behind the
scene... basically because he rushes some steps... so things may not be
fully cooked while he's doing it.

The only downside is you don't know what's being prepared ahead of time,
if you don't like that specific item for dinner. All you know (IIRC) is
the theme.

I liked the whole activity, but Charles didn't care for the meal since
he said he doesn't care for chicken.

Hope you enjoyed your cruise on the Ecstasy. It is so nice to see you

Wow, I am the most sarcastic person I know, and I tend to be
really good at picking up on it. Sorry, I didn't see it.

The bottom line still is, this was already posted, so trying to spin that
fact in an attempt to change the concept with smoke and mirrors, doesn't
change this simple acknowledgement. But that's not the real issue here,
which is actually the press release itself. Personally, I feel this will be
a very popular option. In fact, I will gladly pay the price, yet allowing
Deborah to make the decision on this one. After all, her forte is cooking,
and pretending to be right all the time is not the objective.
