Classic Cunard scones.
Recreate the quintessentially British afternoon tea experience at home with this delicious recipe from our Executive Chef.
No wonder we gravitate towards the ocean: the soul-soothing sounds of the waves, the healing sensations of the salty air, and the invigoration of the water when we're swimming in the sea all feel like a tonic.
"The sea is a powerful wellbeing prescription for both our physical and psychological health," says Jane Alexander, a leading holistic health expert and author. "As adults, around 60 per cent of our bodies are made up of water, so it's not surprising that we feel a kinship with the element outside our bodies, as well as inside."
Here, she highlights just some of the health benefits you can soak up while you’re on a Cunard cruise – whether strolling on deck or enjoying some of the many activities on board.
In addition, we present two delicious recipes from the Cunard kitchen to add some healthy highlights to your weekly dishes.
"As adults, around 60% of our bodies are made up of water, so it's not surprising that we feel a kinship with the element outside our bodies, as well as inside." - Jane Alexander, holistic health expert.
The extraordinary powers of the sea are reflected in Mareel Wellness & Beauty, our stunning holistic spa concept available on board the Cunard fleet.
This breakfast is a real guest favourite in the Britannia restaurant and Kings Court, and effortlessly simple to make for yourself. You can customise it to your taste, with a variety of toppings, though many enjoy the deliciously light and soft recipe as it comes.
"To make an even lighter version of the Bircher muesli, you can swap the milk for a dairy alternative, and the Greek yogurt for low-fat yogurt.” - Mark Oldroyd, Executive Chef.
Watch our Executive Chef, Mark Oldroyd recreate the ideal muesli breakfast: with nutrient-rich oats to keep you full, and grated fruits to provide Vitamin C and fibre, this is a healthy and delicious beginning to any new day.
Part of a brand new plant-based menu served on board the Cunard fleet from 2021, this dish is light, flavoursome and refreshing; and sure to remind of you sun-soaked Mediterranean voyages. Head of Culinary Development, Gareth Bowen, shows how to make this simple and delicious dish – recommending that you use the freshest in-season tomatoes you can find.
