Default What Delectable Delights are not to be missed?

I just finished making a Vietnamese Noodle Salad that was delicious and it got my brain thinking of what wonderful foods should I be trying on my May 3rd Century cruise.

I do hope they have the Viennese Chocolate Pudding (Mohr Im Hemd). It is one of my favorite Celebrity foods.

What's yours????????

Take care,
Mike

Agree on the Creme Brulee, also, the one thing not to be missed are the fresh made waffles in the buffet in the morning....

Trip, when I was on the Constellation last year, they DID have mini Creme Brules, during the late evening Chocolate Extravaganza in the Bar at the Edge of the World. There were mini cups with various different flavours of Creme Brule, great for sampling!

dkjretired, I also would recommend those wonderful breakfast waffles, with fresh fruit and whipped cream!

Default Century food favs

Mike, On Century TA past Fall. Food much better than last Century, 06. I especially liked the lamb, best escargots at sea(every nite),homemade ice cream. Excellent flaky croisants. Breakfast pizzas inc. salmon and cream cheese. Enjoy.

The usual times for formal nights are, the second night and the last sea day.

If there are no sea days then it is usually the second night and the second to last night.

I know you'll have some great meals and I know I will also eat well on Century.

Take care,
Mike

Thanks all above!
Creme Brule--not my favorite--but maybe I haven't had the good stuff!
Food sounds great on Celebrity.

Anyone have any specifics for Summit?
Jan 29-Feb 5, 2011

Lucky I can eat my way through cruises and gain nothing--or lose the little I gain quickly! All that walking to get to the food!

Will have the waffles with fruit and whipped cream.

Do they have a pizza place 24 hours? How is it? Pizza only, or other selections?

On my last Celebrity cruise, I had creme brulee and escargot every night. Loved it! loved it!

When they served lamb shank, that was to die for.

The one thing I enjoyed on my last Celebrity cruise was the sandwich bar, which was Aft on the M-class ships. The sandwiches were very good. The waffles were, IMHO way overrated. After trying them a couple of times, they were soggy and tasteless; I wound up having the croissants via room service. The croissants were very good.

On all of my Celebrity cruises, there was no secret, as the waffles that I had were right off the grill. Most of the other people that I talked to, agreed that Celebrity waffles were certainly not anything special.

I remember before my first Celebrity cruise, ten years ago, there was a lot of talk about how wonderful the "Swan Thingee" was.

The food on that cruise and almost every other Celebrity cruise has been great but when I took my first bite of the "Swan Thingee" I was greatly disappointed. It was this soggy, swan shaped pastry, filled with a flavorless cream filling. With all the hype I was just expecting so much more. Oh well, Celebrity has more than made up for a bad "Swan Thingee".

Take care,
Mike

My son fell in love with Creme Brulee on our last cruise, to the point that the waiter had a couple waiting on hem each night! In fact, he asked for a baking set to make it for Christmas that year - and he was 7! He LOVES making different flavors with mom, and I love having that special time with him!

I agree the creme brulee--various flavors was wonderful,and osso buccho was one of the best entrees . I also agree the waffles are very average ( I think it is the whipped cream etc that would make cardboard taste good). The swan thingy is fun although tasteless.

Default Tastes

First, the "swans" are made of puff pastry, the same as used for cream puffs and there is no way (as a cook)they can be filled as a cruise ship does and be "fresh"...it's just a custsey way to serve a dessert..As for waffles..basically they are all the same recipe..how one can be better than another I don't know..
