Paul Gauguin Cruises, operator of m/s Paul Gauguin, has announced that celebrity Chef Massimo Capra will join The Gauguin’s 23rd September 2017 Tahiti & the Society Islands voyage, for a lecture and culinary demonstration, along with meet-and-greet photo opportunities.
Italian native Capra has been delighting food lovers through his fine dining establishments, TV appearances and award-winning cookbooks.
Capra began his culinary career in a famous trattoria near Venice before turning his talents to the hotel industry in northern Italy.
In 1982, he relocated to Toronto, Canada, where he began working at a restaurant owned by a family member. From there, he became an acclaimed chef at Prego della Piazza restaurant, where he remained for nine years.
Chef Capra’s culinary empire includes the Rainbow Room at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, Boccone Trattoria Veloce and Boccone Pronto at Pearson airport in Toronto and Soprafino Restaurant at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar.
Last year, he opened Capra’s Kitchen, a casual Italian eatery with a heavy emphasis on pasta, pizza and antipasto, in his hometown of Mississauga, Ontario.
In addition to his restaurant empire, Chef Capra is also a cookbook author.
