BelmondAustralian celebrity chef Luke Mangan – who provides menus for Virgin Australia and operates his Salt Grill restaurants aboard P&O Cruises vessels – has signed a new partnership with upmarket operator Belmond, which will see his cuisine offered aboard the iconic Eastern & Oriental Express. This luxury train takes passengers between Singapore and Bangkok, with Mangan to host his first rail journey on 28th October this year.

Mangan will “showcase his internationally regarded culinary skills” in partnership with Eastern & Oriental Express’ executive chef Yannis Martineau, with the three day two night journey through Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand carrying just 82 fortunate guests in all ensuite air conditioned cabins. There will also be a signing of his new Salt Grill, Fine Dining for the whole family cookbook, with Mangan saying “to now be part of the Eastern & Oriental family is undoubtedly a very exciting period of our business and brand”.

Prices for the journey start at US$2,280 per person including all table d’hote meals.
