Everything will be prepared for you to ensure an unbelievable cruise experience aboard Apres Tout.

Caroline Macrae takes a great pride in the food served on board – she started cooking on boats in 1991 on the new Bateau Napoleon cruising in Provence. Having so many years experience she knows just what the guests like! We serve a wonderful breakfast on board, with croissants and pastries fresh from the local bakery, cereals, yogurts and fruit and a hot cooked breakfast is always available. Buffet lunches consists of cold meats and terrines, pates, tarts or quiches and various colourful salads, and a cheese course. Dinners are more formal with plated food, such as scallops with an artichoke puree, Fillets of quail au jus with baby vegetables, a selection of cheese and fruit followed by Meringue swans with a raspberry coulis.

We have a brilliant selection of wines on board – obviously serving a lot of Burgundy wine such as Chassagne Montrachet, Clos du Mouches, Pommard, Meursault and also wines from other regions such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Sancerre, and Bordeaux.
