Quark Expeditions launched its Tundra to Table: Inuit Culinary Experience on its Traverse of the Northwest Passage: Epic High Arctic Route on August 30, according to a press release.

According to Quark Expeditions, guests aboard the Ultramarine loved the Inuit fusion-style dining experience at Balena Restaurant, hosted by Greenlandic chefs Peter Berthelsen and Miki Siegstad.

“Tundra to Table, developed in partnership with Inuit chefs, is the only exclusively Inuit dining experience of its kind, offering guests a unique adventure into Inuit cuisine and culture from Greenland and Nunavut. We are very happy for our guests who had the chance to enjoy this innovative culinary and cultural experience on board, and we are equally happy for the Inuit chefs who had the opportunity to share the stories of their people through the food,” said Alex McNeil, director of expedition experience and innovation, Quark Expeditions.

Siegstad spoke with guests about the origins of the food served in this dining experience, as well as elements of Inuit cuisine in Greenland and Nunavut. Among the dishes featured on the menu are South Greenland lamb served with layers of sliced ​​potatoes, sweet turnip stew, marinated angelica and wild gravy.

The experience will be offered on the following 2023 Arctic season cruises:
