Oceania Cruises and 'Food & Wine' magazine plan a gala event during the June 19-21 Food & Wine Classic in Aspen to honor master chef Jacques Pépin's 80th birthday.

A culinary legend, Pépin has been associated with the cruise line since its inception, serving as executive culinary director and responsible for shaping the cuisine served across the fleet.

This relationship with Oceania Cruises led to the opening of Pépin's first restaurant at sea, Jacques, aboard Marina and Riviera. 

In collaboration with the chef, Oceania is creating a two-day culinary immersion program focused on Pépin's techniques and recipes as part of the curriculum in its Culinary Center on both ships.
