He was crowned the Best Pastry Chef in France (Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 1997) and was a gold medal winner at the World Pastry Team Championship in 2002 and 2004. As the world’s largest privately-owned cruise line, MSC Cruises guests will now be able to discover new culinary delights from French chocolatier and pastry chef Jean-Philippe Maury.
Chef Maury has an indistinguishable knack for making some of the world’s most delightful chocolate and dessert creations. He held the position of Executive Pastry Chef at The Bellagio Hotel Las Vegas in 1998 and then the Aria Hotel in 2009. He has two shops at the MGM Resorts International, Jean-Philippe Patisserie, one of which houses the world’s tallest and largest chocolate fountain. Last summer, he opened an innovative dessert concept in San Diego, called iDessert.
Guests do not have to travel far and wide to experience Maury’s sweet works of art with his expected high-profile presence on the next-generation Meraviglia ships.
Chef Maury will be tempting guests with his sweet creations, initially on MSC Divina – currently based in Miami and sailing year-round in the Caribbean. This will then extend to the rest of the fleet, with new dessert offerings for the ship’s buffet, specialty restaurants and the private and exclusive MSC Yacht Club.
“We constantly look to surprise and delight our guests with new and authentic culinary experiences. Jean-Philippe Maury is a world pastry champion who embodies passion, elegance, innovation and excellence – the same characteristics that distinguish MSC Cruises,” said Rick Sasso, president of MSC Cruises USA.
Guests will be able to enjoy a chocolate atelier with an open kitchen as well as sample Maury’s specialty pastry and bakery menus. Chef Maury will also work with MSC Cruises to create a gourmet ice cream parlour and crèperie in the impressive indoor promenade on the new Meraviglia ships.
“I am truly honored to partner with MSC Cruises in this new exciting adventure. Creativity and passion will lead us to the next level of excellence,” says Jean-Philippe Maury.
