Harlequin London have recently reported on their successful running of two yacht crew training workshops in conjunction with partners at the most recent Palma Superyacht Show.
The first workshop held was in partnership with No 12. Fine Wines’ Andrew Azzopardi, and centred around wine tasting, and choosing the right glasses for the right wines. The Saint-Louis Twist 1586 collection – which simplifies the choice of glass by featuring simply a sparkling, old, and new wine glass – was used during the workshop to great success, and crew were also enthralled by the possibilities the collection could offer around stowage on board.
Jamie, managing director at Harlequin London, commented “Presenting the Twist 1586 collection is a joy, put simply, and as an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to wine these glasses really do work.
The following day, Harlequin London was joined by Peter Vogel from Interior Yacht Services, Angie Lenton from Galleytek, and Andrew Azzopardi from No. 12 Fine Wines to run the ‘On trend dining’ workshop aboard 43m CD Two.
Starting in the saloon with some Prosecco drunk from Sieger By Furstenberg 'Sip of Gold' porcelain tumblers, attendees were then guided upstairs and handed a vodka shot each. Eight individuals were selected at random and were sat for the first course. Four courses were served and the eight diners were 'changed' between each serving ensuring all benefitted from the experience.
Harlequin London wrote, “Our experience of the event was wonderful and we now have a clearer understanding on the trials and tribulations crew face with food prep, service, stowage and the inevitable clearing up.”
Harlequin will be posting more information about their visit to Palma Superyacht Show on their blog.
