Stimulating and Sumptuous Dining

Top chefs compose four-course meals for the KD dinner cruises
The popular dinner cruises on board the KD event boats promise culinary delights against a wonderful backdrop. On these evenings, the finest culinary creations, passion and stimulating conversations are guaranteed. Guests enjoy four-course meals specially composed for the evening in a pleasant atmosphere. The seasonal meals are prepared by the top chefs with the KD galley crew on the day of the event. Guests can also order wine pairing if they wish.

Enjoy fine dining and recharge your batteries

The meals are as varied and surprising as the top chefs themselves. Guests and chefs also enjoy the dinner cruises because they offer the chance for personal interaction and getting to know one another. These are evenings full of empathy and respect. And added value. A few helpful tips can often be coaxed out of the professionals, which passengers can later use to amaze their family or guests. The creations are also a feast for the eyes. The individual courses are artfully and attractively arranged in the galley and served at the table by friendly KD service staff. The motto of each dinner cruise is: Please take a seat, sit back, enjoy, and recharge your batteries. In Düsseldorf, the cruise sets sail from the KD jetty on the Rhine promenade/Burgplatz. The journey from Cologne also starts in the old town.

A look at Düsseldorf

Michelin-starred chef Holger Berens delivers a culinary experience on board in Düsseldorf. He runs the “Berens am Kai – Restaurant/Bar” in Düsseldorf ’s MedienHafen port. Of course, he is transferring the credo of his establishment to the KD dinner cruise: the food is first class and classic, yet always surprising and personal. In his creations, regional and international quirks and nuances are blended together. Rhineland classics confidently hold their own alongside French, Italian, Mediterranean and Japanese influences.

The big “Kitchen Party” on 14th August on board the MS RheinGalaxie is set to be a real insider’s tip this summer. Selected top chefs from the local region will be gathering to enchant guests with their extraordinary creations at various stations on the event ship. We can reveal this much already – Michelin-starred chef Holger Berens will also be there. Of course, this is accompanied by exquisite wines and chill-out tunes on the sun deck. This promises to be a fine summer evening!

In Cologne, the following top chefs will be serving up a meal:

In his “Henne Weinbar. Restaurant” in Pfeilstraße in the heart of Cologne’s old town, Hendrik Olfen goes for simple and straightforward cuisine.  The team concentrates on a few good basic products. The dishes are based on products that are available fresh every day. The trick is in the combination of the dishes. Guests can look forward to seeing what extraordinary delicacies the young chef comes up with for “his” KD evening.

Olaf Baumeister is the official North Rhine-Westphalia gourmet ambassador for the Sauerland. The passionate chef tirelessly brings the world of great culinary pleasures to the Hotel Seegarten in Sundern on Lake Sorpe in the Sauerland – much to the delight of his many guests. He celebrates the specialities of the region with great dedication, creativity and charisma. His fans on the KD dinner cruises also appreciate this. They have experienced a humorous perfectionist who is always good for a surprise in the presentation of the dishes. 

Fans of French and Indian cuisine will be pleased: Jaspreet Dhaliwal-Wilmes, who combines the distinctive features of French classics with the fascinating world of flavours from his home country of India in his extraordinary compositions, for the first time features twice in the KD dinner cruise calendar. The chef with a heart and passion started out five years ago with the restaurant “Der vierte König” in the Cologne district of Sülz after several stints in well-known Michelinstarred restaurants. Like almost no other, thelikeable Indian gives his dishes their very ownculinary style – what comes out of his kitchen inspires the senses. And is delicious, too.
