Savor the essence of Spain

Seafood Paella Mediterranean diet recipe with shrimp, squid and mussels on rustic green wooden background - Accent On Travel

When it comes to Spanish cuisine, two dishes stand out as quintessential favorites. 

Paella, the iconic rice dish, originated in the Valencia region and has since become a symbol of Spanish culinary culture. Savor the vibrant flavors of saffron-infused rice, combined with a variety of ingredients such as succulent seafood, tender chicken, or flavorful rabbit, as you sail between destinations in Spain.

Often served as a snack or appetizer, jamón, or cured ham, is produced from acorn-fed Iberian pigs. This thinly sliced meat boasts a distinct aroma and rich flavor. Whether enjoyed on its own or paired with traditional Spanish cheese and a glass of fine wine, jamón offers a gastronomic delight that reflects the country’s love for exquisite cured meats.


Uncover the secrets of Greek gastronomy 

Homemade hummus - chickpea spread with tahini. - Accent On Travel

Dip to your heart’s content with hummus, a creamy blend of chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice — a staple of Greek cuisine. Served with warm pita bread, hummus offers a delightful combination of flavors and textures, making it an ideal appetizer or snack.

Don’t miss your chance to try the culinary gem of Greek street food, souvlaki. Skewered and grilled meat, typically lamb or pork, is marinated in a blend of herbs, garlic, and olive oil, resulting in tender and succulent morsels. Served with tzatziki sauce and wrapped in pita bread, souvlaki provides a satisfying and authentic Greek dining experience.

Sample the rustic dish of moussaka, too, a classic Greek casserole that combines layers of sautéed eggplant, ground meat (often lamb), and béchamel sauce, all baked to perfection. The harmonious blend of flavors and hearty texture make this dish a Greek favorite that will leave you wanting more when you arrive home.


Feast on a symphony of flavors in Italy

Italian Pizza - Accent On Travel

Renowned for art, architecture, and fashion, Italy is also a haven of culinary delights. Pizza, a worldwide sensation, finds its roots in Italy. Appreciate every slice, complete with tangy tomato sauce and a variety of delectable toppings that range from classic margherita to indulgent combinations like prosciutto and arugula. Italy’s diverse pizza offerings ensure that there’s something for everyone’s palate.

Experience something unique with black squid ink pasta. Also known as “Pasta al Nero di Seppia” in Italian, it’s a striking dish that captivates with its deep black color and savory taste. Made with squid ink-infused pasta, this dish is often paired with seafood, resulting in a symphony of flavors that pays homage to the Mediterranean Sea.


Delight in French delicacies

While exploring the French Riviera on your Regent Seven Seas Cruises voyage, make sure to indulge in these signature dishes from a country that takes great pride in its culinary arts.

Crêpes, both sweet and savory, are a must for the quintessential French treat. Whether filled with Nutella and fresh fruits or savory combinations like ham and cheese, these thin and delicate pancakes offer a delightful culinary experience.

Originating from the Provence region, ratatouille is a vegetable medley that showcases the vibrant flavors of tomatoes, eggplants, bell peppers, and zucchini. Served as a side dish or a main course, this classic is a celebration of seasonal produce and the art of French cooking.
