P&O Interlude

Todays post takes the form of a delicious interlude from the diary of our cruise aboard P&O’s Azura. Instead concentrating on the delicious food that we had served on board.

As part of the Header Challenge I take part in each week, Lanny has chosen for this weeks theme “Delicious”, which I think sums up all the food on-board Azura perfectly.

The dining room was immaculately laid out. The waiters assisted you to your seats presenting you with your napkin and menu.

It was the food though that was the pièce de résistance.

Such as this Avocado Pear Salad with Crumbled Goat’s cheese Crottin and Raspberry Vinaigrette


Or this Bury Black Pudding with a Fried Free Range Duck Egg and Bacon Crumble.


When Harriet our youngest daughter ordered this main meal she wasn’t expecting the chips to be quite the size they were…


She said they were delicious though.

As did my one of my other daughters Esther who ordered the next dish…

chicken tikka

the Chicken Tikka Masala with Pulao Rice, Poppadom, Naan Bread and Condiments.


(sorry about the poor picture)

And my choice the Gressingham Goose Roasted Two Ways with Potato and Parsnip Croquettes, Savoy Cabbage and Redcurrant Jus.

(Yes our family does have very eclectic tastes, but then the menu was so wide we felt we had to try out lots of different dishes).

As for the desserts well they were certainly “Delicious” with a Capitol “D”.

You had Summer pudding with Devonshire clotted cream…

summer pudding

and chocolate puddings that oozed out chocolate as you cut into them.

Warm Dark Chocolate and Praline Fondant with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Cappuccino Anglaise.


Or the Delicious Greek Yoghurt Cheesecake with Honey and Spiced Blueberry.


So as you can see; but unfortunately you don’t get to taste, technology has advanced but it’s not quite that advanced yet, the food we had on-board P&O’s Azura, was certainly “Delicious”.

I hope that was what you had in mind when you conjured up your theme for this week Lanny. I’ve created a header with just a few of the delicious delicacies highlighted here. I hope I’ve wetted your appetite a little bit, if so call back soon for more from on-board P&O’s Azura.

In the mean time have a look and see what the other headbangers have come up with for their delicious headers this week. Just follow their links in my right hand menu bar.

See you soon.

Oh delicious indeed! When I was a kid and the space race had just taken off, we were told that in the future we would eat just like the astronauts, sucking our food out of a tube, I'm glad that for the most part that has not come true, there is nothing like an incredibly well presented delicious meal, on our our tables at home or accompanied by delightful service out and about.
