World cuisine plays a central role in our latest themed activity programme – ‘Around the World with Nellsar Cruises’. Taking place over a number of months, our residents will be enjoying the sights, sounds and tastes of seven different locations around the globe.
Our Cruise’s latest destination was India and across Nellsar our Chefs rose to the challenge of creating some colourful Indian cuisine, packed with authentic flavours and textures. What a fantastic celebration of Indian culture!
