As with all things one end marks another beginning and so it is for Chef Mike Roemhild. After rising through the ranks to Executive Chef with Regent Seven Seas, Chef Mike is creating a new exciting life on land for himself and wife songstress Heather Clancy. In addition to contributing to the new section on "The Taste of Alaska" in my book, "Cruiser Friendly Onboard Guide to Alaska's Inside Passage", Mike has embarked on a fantastic new project that only he and Heather could offer. Dinner with The Diva combines an evening of fine dining with great entertainment provided by none other than Mike and Heather! Just imagine the chance to wow your country-club or next corporate event with a custom-made menu prepared by a chef who was the number one Executive Chef of a six-star cruise line and then, if that's not great enough, your evening's entertainment is the beautiful, funny and ever-talented Heather Clancy whose repertoire ranges from pop and standards to classic opera. This makes me so excited, I can imagine how much fun this would be for a wedding or any occasion where you want something extra-special and need to know it will be done right.
To learn more about Dinner with The Diva and what else is going on with Chef Mike, he has a new website where you will also find a few of his own recipes. To ensure that you get the results as Chef Mike, he is also launching a line of seasoning based on Old World ingredients. If you enjoyed the meals that Chef Mike brought you over the years I hope you will take a look at www.chefmikeroemhild.com
I want to wish everyone on the Seven Seas Mariner a wonderful season in the Mediterranean and I look forward to seeing some of you here on the Navigator. Best wishes, smooth seas!
