Three well-known British television personalities – John Torode, Lisa Faulkner, and Gennaro Contaldo – have been unveiled as the initial culinary talents set for Princess Cruises’ debut Good Food Show at Sea.

The partnership of husband and wife, Torode and Faulkner, famed from MasterChef, and Contaldo, recognised as the chef who tutored Jamie Oliver in Italian cuisine, are poised to bring flavour and flair to the event. It is due to take place on board the grand 3,660-guest Sky Princess.

Lisa and I want to make this a really fun trip for all with personal cookery demos and a Q&A,” John Torode said.
