Not only does Marco have three Michelin stars, but he was also the youngest person to achieve that many. He’s trained several well-known chefs, including Gordon Ramsey. P&O Cruises offer a very special opportunity to take part in a hands-on cookery class with this ‘’Godfather of British cuisine’’ at The Cookery Club. If that’s not enough, you can also learn his tricks of the trade in a masterclass demonstrated by Marco himself, as well as enjoy hosted dinners.
