Toronto Sun: Viking sails to the heart of Portugal's food culture
February 3, 2017 – The Kitchen Table Experience happens once or twice per cruise and is part of Viking's philosophy of "cultural immersion" – creating experiences that bring a sense of place aboard their ships. When asked about his culinary approach for Viking Cruises, Mauboussin replies: "My philosophy is simple – I hand-select only the highest quality ingredients from the best markets – ones that support local farmers. Where possible, I use organic and sustainable products ... I cook everything with passion."
