AMA- Infused Water Recipes
This is the healthiest of all recipes here. Water is most good-for-you when enjoyed at room temperature.
Thing is: drinking plain water is boring. Adding fresh lemon and mint is a nice visual but also adds healthy benefits.
Aboard Ama cruise ships as one enters and exits in the lobby is a constantly filled citrus water pitcher.
AMA: Turnip Soup- Germany & Austria On the Danube
Soup to perfection is rare- but not the case on such a masterful gastronomically detailed operation like Ama.
This soup is just.... DE-LECT-A-BLE !
AMA: Mulled Wine
American sensibilities may be hesistant for warmth in wine but it was enjoyable for this American on a brisk autumn day in Prague
AMA- Hungarian Goulash - Hungary on the Danube
Goulash may not sound appetizing but it's very hearty and flavorful.
AMA: Sacher Torte- Vienna on the Danube
Germany has its fancy Black Forest cake. Austria has its refined Sacher Torte. You can't go wrong with either -
but for straight chocolate heaven, try Sacher!
AMA: Apricot Tart - Austria on the Danube
SEE VIDEO OF THIS RECIPE AND ENGAGING "SIP AND SAIL" FEATURING CHEF /TV HOST JOANNE WEIR
AMA- Apricot Ice Cream- Austria
AMA: Codfish- Portugal on the Douro
Northern Portugal has an affair with cod. It's traditionally salted and dried and often eaten plain
but I'd like to try this dressed up recipe aboard AmaDouro or AmaVida.
AMA: Basque Chicken- Bilbao and San Sebastian
Basque country is beloved as an ultimate food capital of the world.
AMA- Dutch Cheese Soup - Netherlands via Rotterdam
Truth be told, there is no such thing as a bad cheese. Gouda, originating in the Netherlands is wonderful
to nibble on alone, with breads and in a soup.
AMA- French Onion Soup- France on the Seine
Quite fishy and fantastic: from Crystal
CRYS: Crab Cakes
CRYS: Lobster Rolls
Chef Jon is quite passionate in presentation and knows his gastronomic stuff!
CRYS: Smoky Shrimp Tacos
A Unique Dessert from Crystal:

Drunken dessert? Yes, please!
