Holland America Line is expanding its live onboard cooking program America’s Test Kitchen in 2019 with five new shows, all set to kick off this month.

The shows will feature on all of Holland America’s ships (except Maasdam), giving the line 19 total Test Kitchen Shows, all hosted by Holland America chefs.

The new shows include Sweet and Fruity Deserts, where guests will learn how to make apple crisp and cheese blintzes with raspberry sauce; Dinner Classics for Two, which feature chicken marsala, rice pilaf, and chocolate fudge cakes; Mediterranean Medley that includes hummus, lamb meatballs, couscous, and yogurt sauce; two sets of Serious Tacos, one from chicken braised in chilies and tomatoes and one composed from crispy shrimp; and Make Your Own Takeout, which features pad thai and scallion pancakes.

While the shows will be produced live onboard, they will also all be available 24-hours a day on stateroom television.

"Holland America Line guests are knowledge seekers, foodies and learners, and our America's Test Kitchen shows really resonate with them — which is why they're wildly popular and draw standing-room-only crowds," said Holland America president Orlando Ashford.

"We're excited to expand on the already exceptional menu of shows offered by America's Test Kitchen to include some fun topics that easily transition to the home kitchen."
