Shirlene Elkins is gearing up for a culinary expedition like none other. The star of the naplesillustrated.com-produced web-series, Shirlene's Cuisine, is taking to the Mediterranean with Silversea Cruises for an eight-day voyage of culinary delight and automotive prowess.
The May 23-30, 2013 trip will include seven different ports-of-call, embarking in Barcelona, cruising on over to Corsica, then to Mote Carlo, followed by Saint Tropez, then three different stops in Italy (Portofino, Portoferraio and Rome). While in Monte Carlo, voyagers will enjoy the 71st running of the Monaco Grand Prix, one of the most important races in the world, and Formula One’s most prestigious.
While on board the cruise, Shirlene will assist the chefs of Silversea in a cooing demonstration based on some of Shirlene’s favorite Mediterranean-inspired meals. For those interested in joining Shirlene aboard the Silversea’s Mediterranean cruise, please contact Lynne Adams with Travel Experts (239-949-1611).
