Hosted by Chef Raymond Ost, Master Chef of France**
Find inspiration in the romantic, soul-stirring beauty of the remarkable Rhine
Flowers spill from baskets lining streets of half-timbered houses, and lights sparkle off quiet canals. A monumental river carries ships and cargo through a landscape shaped by time and history. The spires of medieval churches and castles appear around each bend in the river, and vineyards climb the verdant hillsides.
Your ALL-INCLUSIVE Uniworld River Cruise Vacation includes:
Cruise along the Rhine—Germany on one side, France on the other. Discover Alsace, whose dual French and German heritage has given it magnificent food and a winemaking tradition that goes back to the Romans. Marvel at castles that were once colossal fortresses and get an insider’s look at one of the only castles on the Rhine that has never been devastated, Marksburg Castle. Visit historic cities, including ancient Cologne and scenic Strasbourg; stroll through the enchanted towns of Riquewihr, Kaysersberg and Rüdesheim; and taste delightful white wines in the villages where the grapes are grown. Beethoven and Byron loved the romantic backdrops of the Rhine River, and the splendor that inspired them is still yours to experience.
Hosted by Chef Raymond Ost, Master Chef of France**, you will enjoy the most delectable cuisines and experience the most beautiful scenery of this incredible region.
Award-winning James Beard Nominee Raymond Ost is a French Master Chef with a career in the culinary industry spanning over 30 years, including 20 years of Executive Chef experience at five-star international luxury hotels. He received his culinary art degree in France at the age of 17 and has since been Knighted by the French Government. Chef Ost's passion for food and farm to table sensibilities lend themselves well to both traditional and innovative cuisine that is both earthy and luxurious.
Ost, who is well-known in the Boston-area culinary scene, worked at Le Meridien Boston for 12 years before opening Sandrine’s Bistro in Harvard Square. Sandrine’s was voted one of the ten best restaurants in the U.S. by Esquire Magazine.
Currently the Executive Chef at Wilson Farm, Chef Ost hopes to bring a little bit of Alsace and a lot of French to the farm’s prepared foods. He and his team create scrumptious, seasonally-inspired prepared foods for you to take home and enjoy. From flavorful appetizers to main courses, soups, sides, sandwiches and salads, there is something to suit every palate.
