Celebrity chef Jacques Pepin will host a special cruise for foodies next summer in the Mediterranean.

Oceania Cruises says the well-known TV cooking show host and author of more than 20 cookbooks will lead a 10-day voyage from London to Copenhagen that kicks off June 2. It’ll take place on the line’s 1,250-passenger Marina.

The sailing will feature exclusive cooking demonstrations, specially designed signature menus and lectures. It’ll include stops at ports in the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, Demark and Sweden.

Pepin has served as Oceania’s executive culinary director for more than a decade. His dishes are featured in restaurants across the line’s six ships, and he created the French bistro-style restaurants called Jacques found on Marina and sister ship Riviera.

Oceania expanded this year with a new vessel, Sirena.
