Master Pâtissier to bring a sweet treat to P&O Cruises Food and Wine theme cruises

Master Pâtissier and Cake Boy legend, Eric Lanlard, has teamed up with P&O Cruises on two Food and Wine theme cruises for 2013, to give passengers an insight into his intricate design and detail of cakes, patisserie and deserts.

Lanlard, who has previously made cakes for Her Majesty the Queen Mother, David Beckham and Claudia Schiffer, amongst others, made a bespoke cake for P&O Cruises celebrations of 175 years of heritage, which was cut by HRH The Princess Royal on July 3.

Lanlard will give passengers an insight into some of his techniques and designs in baking, patisserie, chocolate and desserts, and will travel on two cruises in 2013:

• A 14 night Western Mediterranean on board Azura (A310N), departing April 27, joining Atul Kochhar and Olly Smith on board. Vantage Fares from £1,069pp

• A 28 night Caribbean no fly cruise on board Adonia (D318), departing November, joining Marco Pierre White on board. Vantage Fares from £2,439pp

Whilst on board, Lanlard will be participating in a theatre Q&A with the cruise director, a book signing and photo session, demonstrations in the theatre and a private masterclass for 10 people (a charge will apply – on board Azura only).

Lanlard said: “My passion is for making cake that tastes as good as it looks, taking my inspiration from the many parts of the world I have travelled to. I have been on many cruises and love them, it’s a great way to travel and see different places in a short time. I am so excited to be working with the team at P&O Cruises, I love sharing my passion for my work, meeting new people and of course I love being on the ships, come and join me!”
