| March 8, 2017

Still feeling the chill of winter? Here’s a yummy soup recipe from Bernd Schröter, director of hotel operations at Star Clippers.

Broccoli Cream Soup with Chili Cream

Serves 4 people

100 gr (1/2 cup) finely chopped onion

300 gr (1 1/4 cup) diced broccoli

1 tsp of olive oil

200 ml (1 cup) of vegetable stock

50 gr (1/4 cup) of cream cheese

Salt, pepper and sugar to taste

 

Chili Cream:

100 ml (1/2 cup) fresh whipped cream

1 tsp of finely chopped red chili peppers

3 tsp of croûtons

 

Decoration:

4 Italian bread sticks

4 slices of smoked ham

 

Preparation:

Heat the oil and sautée the onion until it looks transparent. Add the broccoli and let the mixture cook a little bit before adding the vegetable stock. Cover the pan and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.

Mix the soup in a blender with the cream cheese and season to taste (salt, pepper, sugar)

Mix the chopped chili with the whipped cream.

Wrap a slice of ham around each bread stick (leaving half the bread stick free)

 

Serving suggestion

Pour the soup into a warm soup plate or bowl and garnish with some of the chili cream, sprinkle with croûtons and decorate with one ham bread stick.

 

Accompany with fresh or toasted baguette.

 

Chef’s tip:

Strips of turkey breast or sautéed chicken liver also work well as a garnish

Star Clippers: Grand Voyage
| February 21, 2017

Several countries in a single voyage, across the Mediterranean to the whitewashed shores of Greece … only select itineraries are worthy of the title “Grand” and we are happy to offer 15 grand voyages in 2017 on the Royal Clipper and the Star Flyer.

With extended itineraries ranging from 12 to 18 glorious nights and calls at an interesting collection of ports, guests are able to explore several countries, as well as one country in-depth, in one sailing and become deeply immersed in the culture, beauty and history of the region.

Destination collectors take note of Star Flyer’s 18-night itinerary in July 2017 that calls at eight ports in Greece, as well as ports in Turkey, Croatia, and Montenegro; and the Royal Clippers 14-night itinerary in August 2017 with 9 ports in France and 5 in France.

Star Clippers: Love is Always in the Air!
| February 8, 2017

Valentine’s Day isn’t the only time to find romance. Love is always in the air on a Star Clippers sailing!

The graceful tall ships in the Star Clippers’ fleet provide an exceptionally romantic setting for lovers, for honeymooners, for anniversary celebrations and romantic voyages. Sailing in and out of the world’s most beautiful destinations in an atmosphere of casual elegance, a cruise on one of the three Star Clippers ships is parallel to having a fully staffed private yacht. Lay arm-in-arm on a deck-top sunbed, lie side-by-side in the bowsprit net with the waves skimming below, or spot dolphins together at dawn from the decks of a magnificent tall ship in full-sail. Make footprints on white sand beaches, snorkel the clear Caribbean waters, and drop anchor in small bays and harbors.
