The Boston Food Bloggers on a Cruise

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of joining the Boston Food Bloggers on an Oydssey Twilight Dinner Cruise of Boston Harbor .

Here was our table. I hadn’t met any of them before, so it was great to get to know new bloggers!!

We were able to board at 5pm and left promptly at 6pm. Our cruise was from 6 to 9, and enjoyed every minute of it. The service was excellent and Drew was our guy. He made sure that we had everything that we needed! We were offered a glass of champagne when we sat down.

Our group had VIP seats, so we had a full open bar. We also had a salad, choice of main course and also dessert. We also had a live band and vocalist, along with a dance floor.

Here was the salad.

It was a mixed greens salad with strawberries, apples, caramelized pecans, crumbled bleu cheese in a raspberry vinaigrette. I love fruit, cheese, and nuts on my salad, so I loved it!

I have been wanting to try this cocktail made with St. Germain, it was strong and fruity. And it was just beautiful with the orchid. It was a popular drink with the ladies at our table. It was Grey goose vodka, St Germain, and champagne.

I ordered the Orange-Ginger Glazed Salmon. It was a pan-seared fresh Salmon Fillet marinated with Ginger, Orange and White Wine served over Green Tea-infused Cous Cous, with a crisp Asian Vegetable Cake. I couldn’t taste the green tea, but it was a great meal and wasn’t too heavy but was filling. The vegetable cake had potatoes and carrots from what I could tell.


The chicken dish: Maple-Glazed Chipotle Chicken Pan-roasted smoked Chicken Breast, served with a Vegetable Ratatouille and roasted Yukon Gold Potatoes, topped with a Chipotle Tomato Cream

After dessert, we ventured back out on the deck to see Charlestown.
