Timeless Glamour & Music Aboard The Venice Simplon-Orient Express
Lose yourself in a luxury journey, aboard an Art Deco train from Paris
Watching the unseen corners of Europe unfold gently outside your train, window can be thirsty work, right? That’s why Belmond Hotels is once again staging a culinary train journey from Paris to Venice, aboard the glittering Art Deco carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient Express.
To celebrate diversity and inclusion in the LBTQ+ community, another unforgettable train ride is slated for 2 November.
On the journey, ample servings of decadent cuisine will be served and live entertainment will play looooong into the night. Trans-DJ Honey Dijon and Dresden’s Purple Disco Machine are both part of the disco-house line-up.
Passengers are encouraged to dress in black-tie or cocktail attire, before they head to the bar and dining carriages to enjoy their night, where they are promised ‘unapologetic extravagance’,.
Negronis, martinis, spritzes and sours will all be on offer as the sunlight fades.
So-hot-right-now French chef Jean Imbert is also in the kitchen rattling the pans for guests.
Imber puts a garden-green-goodness twist on Gallic traditions. He regularly cooks for the who’s-who. Imbert recently co-created a food concept for Dior in Paris, worked with Pharrell Williams to present a dinner in Miami, and he’s even been invited to Cheval Blanc St-Barth to cater luxe LVMH-owned property.
The young chef is vowing to create no less than ‘culinary perfection’ in motion with his own passion for fresh seasonal produce. There’ll be plenty of Beluga caviar, seared scallops, and lobster vol-au-vents.
“I want to create beautiful moments which complement the train, which is the true star,” says Imbert of his hands-on approach to delectable pastries and twists on elegant Euro classics.
“Its unique legacy is something we take pride in respecting, while evolving a new sense of style and purpose that will captivate a new generation.”
