MS EUROPA: Premiere "Restaurant Dieter Mueller" on Board
- Starred chef Dieter Mueller is patron
The starred chef Dieter Mueller and the company Hapag-Lloyd Cruises are looking forward to a special premiere this coming autumn: Dieter Mueller will be the first starred chef to set sail with his own gourmet restaurant aboard the world's only 5-star-plus ship MS EUROPA (rating Berlitz Cruise Guide 2010). Following a redesign on the occasion of a shipyard stay in Hamburg in September, the Euro-Asian restaurant „Oriental" on board the EUROPA will be converted into the „Restaurant Dieter Mueller". The starred chef will personally open the restaurant on 29 September in Hamburg.
Alongside MS EUROPA chef Stefan Wilke, who underwent training with the famous German 3-Michelin-star chef Harald Wohlfahrt and will continue to be in charge of three restaurants on board, the renowned starred chef will be the manager and patron of the new „Restaurant Dieter Mueller" and spend 70 days of the year aboard the EUROPA himself. The „Restaurant Dieter Mueller" with 26 seats offers set meals in the evenings and is included in the cruise price.
Dieter Mueller: "For me, this is a great challenge which I am happy to face in view of the extensive experience I have gained. As a premium chef and ambassador of good taste, I am delighted to be accompanying The World's Most Beautiful Yacht and her guests in culinary terms."
"The EUROPA sets standards on a worldwide scale. Since she was first put into service, she has developed from a traditional ship to a lifestyle product. This is also reflected by the gastronomic selection", explains Sebastian Ahrens, Managing Director of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises. "We are very pleased to present the 'Restaurant Dieter Mueller', the only gourmet temple on the high seas run by one of the best starred chefs in the world."
