Regionally Inspired Cuisine

Whether onboard or onshore, Uniworld guests experience culinary diversity and richness as varied and flavorful as the cruise itself. Our chefs work with the freshest ingredients associated with each destination to emphasize locally sustainable, market-driven cuisine. Guests also enjoy signature recipes from the celebrated cookbook A Life in Food, authored by Mrs. Beatrice Tollman, founder of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, Uniworld’s sister company.
