— George Aballi

REDLANDS, CA., UNITED STATES, January 31, 2020 / — Connection To Cruise is accepting reservations on Royal Caribbean International’s newest ship, Odyssey of the Seas. It will deliver a bold lineup of sought-after destinations as the first Quantum Ultra Class ship to homeport in Rome and sail through the Eastern Mediterranean for the summer season. Royal Caribbean’s game-changing ship will be the first to tout a combination of longer stays in every destination and overnights across some of the Mediterranean’s most luring cities and famed beach destinations. The highly anticipated ship will debut in November 2020, sailing from Fort Lauderdale to the Caribbean for her first season, before continuing her inaugural year in Europe. Connection To Cruise offers bookings for Odyssey’s Mediterranean cruises for summer 2021 starting today.

Beginning May 2021, Odyssey will take travelers on sun-soaked summer vacations in the Eastern Mediterranean on 7-, 9- and 12-night itineraries to the scenic shores and ancient ruins of Santorini, Mykonos, Athens and Rhodes, Greece; Ephesus, Turkey; Naples, Italy; Heraklion, Crete; and Haifa and Jerusalem, Israel. Our customers will have more time than ever to explore local cultures with maximum time on shore, from longer days – up to 15 hours at every port — spent enjoying the multihued waters and beaches of Mykonos and waterfront tavernas of Santorini on 7-night getaways to the Greek Isles, to a double dose of destinations with overnight stays and two full days in Athens and Naples on both 9-night Greek Isles and 12-night Holy Land sailings.

“Odyssey will set the standard for delivering unforgettable European adventures, on which travelers will cruise to an exceptional combination of destinations that are in a league of their own as the most popular ports in the Eastern Mediterranean,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “With extended stays and overnights, Royal Caribbean is combining amazing itineraries with our game-changing ship to create a truly one-of-a-kind Europe vacation.”

The lineup of local experiences available to guests go beyond historic attractions, digging deeper into the vibrant culture and communities of the picturesque destinations. Highlights of adventures in store for Odyssey of the Seas guests:

Sorrento and Amalfi Coast: When visiting Naples, guests can explore the Amalfi Coast, shop for majolica pottery, sample Southern Italian cuisine and enjoy downtime while wandering the flower-filled streets of Sorrento.

Athens: Foodies can partake in the culinary history of Athens with a traditional cooking class for a taste of the local culture. Escorted by a local chef, the day begins with ingredient shopping in the Central Food Market before heading to the restaurant to prepare local dishes.

Mykonos: A beach day for the books, where the entire family can soak up the Cycladean sun at one of Mykonos' best stretches of surf and sand.

Crete: Foodies can embark on a visit to Boutari on the Fantaxometocho Estate, one of the most modern and impressive wineries of Crete, and sample a selection of homegrown wines produced onsite. The neighboring, recently restored village of Archanes is a ‘must see’ with its colorful backstreets, blooming flowers and fruit trees.

Jerusalem and Bethlehem: The distinguished history of two biblically significant cities are brought to life while touring storied landmarks, such as The Wailing Wall, Church of the Nativity and Mount of Olives.

Nazareth: By way of Haifa, vacationers will travel the region of Galilee to explore Nazareth and its churches, including the Church of Annunciation and the Church of St. Gabriel.

When Odyssey of the Seas makes her North American debut in November 2020, the new ship will be the first of her class to sail the Caribbean’s clear blue waters and visit far-flung destinations like Curacao, Aruba, Grand Cayman and Mexico on 8- and 6-night itineraries from Fort Lauderdale.

Green Globe Platinum Status Awarded to Hôtel Martinez

Hôtel Martinez

Green Globe has awarded Hôtel Martinez Platinum Certification marking 10 years of certification at the property.

Situated in a prime location on the exclusive Boulevard de la Croisette, overlooking the Bay of Cannes and the Mediterranean Sea, the luxurious 5 star Hôtel Martinez benefits from Cannes’ status as France’s second most important city for business tourism. Opened in the late 1920s, the hotel embodies the light-heartedness of the Côte d'Azur and the Mediterranean lifestyle.

Green Globe has awarded Hôtel Martinez Platinum Certification marking 10 years of certification at the property.

Yann Gillet, General Manager at the hotel said, “The constant drive towards improvement has allowed the Hôtel Martinez to obtain Platinum Status. I’m very proud of this attainment. We have a range of key targets that we focus on that have included the reduction of single-use plastic, the improvement of food waste management, and support and engagement with local communities. I'm really pleased to see the continuous commitment of all our teams and their involvement in meeting our objectives. What is particularly inspiring is seeing this commitment to sustainability extending beyond the workplace to influence their daily lives as well. For example, even during their free time, many staff members choose to participate in nature cleaning operations such as ‘Nettoyons la nature’ where they work in collaboration with the local association Méditerranée 2000.”

Sustainable achievements over the last decade are many and varied, reflecting the dedication of the hotel toward its green goals.

Down to Earth Dining Experience

Christian Sinicropi is not the type to simply ride the wave of the latest marketing concept. As Executive Chef of the Hôtel Martinez, he channels his creativity and style into the culinary artistry of La Palme d’Or and the hotel’s other dining establishments. The two-star Michelin Chef’s cooking style is sincere and authentic where rather than creating menus based on the latest marketing concept, his approach is based on good old common sense. Chef Sinicropi tends not to dwell on mere concepts such as “Mediterranean cuisine, local food or seasonal products” as he feels that they are all too often reduced to clichés. His Italian and south-eastern French roots are a part of his dishes, as are his choices in regard to the sourcing of individual products.

Chef Sinicropi explains, “I prefer local partners not simply because it’s trendy, but because over time, we foster close bonds with each of our producers. It’s a mutual bond, I enjoy working with companies that share my conscious approach and together we wholeheartedly support our regional culture and the taste of local products. If you love local produce, you’ll protect the earth it comes from… naturally.”

RiseHy Program

As part of its strong commitment to inclusion and diversity, the Hyatt brand has launched the RiseHy Program where young people seeking work are offered training in the tourism industry to improve their future employment prospects. Designed by Hyatt targeting young job seekers aged 16 to 24 years old, hotels have pledged to hire 10,000 out-of-school, unemployed youth by 2025 worldwide with 260 employed in France alone.

In France, a national partnership has been established with ‘Les Determinés’, an association founded in 2015 that aims to develop initiative and entrepreneurship in suburban and rural areas. The association offers personalized support to assist underprivileged young people.

“Since October 2019, we have welcomed 14 young people to train at Hôtel Martinez for a period of 3 months in order to obtain a CQP (Certificate of Professional Qualification) in our Service or Cuisine departments. The objective of the RiseHy program is to develop their skills and offering them a work contract so that they become our talents of tomorrow,” added Yann Gillet.

Caring for the Community

Hôtel Martinez continues to contribute to charitable causes to support those in need in the wider community. To reduce waste in 2019, the hotel signed a partnership deal with the French association, Unisoap. This association collects used soaps from French hotels that are recycled by workers with disabilities and distributed to disadvantaged families and individuals in France and around the world.

Furthermore, for the past three years, the hotel’s beach restaurant ‘La Plage du Martinez’ has selected one of its dishes to support the association ‘Sourire & Partage’ (Smile & Sharing Association), a local charity group providing moral and material assistance to seriously ill children and their families. This year, the restaurant’s Healthy Poke Bowl has been chosen to help the charity where for each dish sold, 1 Euro is donated to the association.

Discover a unique fusion of Southern Thai and Chinese Hokkien cuisine

PHUKET, THAILAND, January 30, 2020 / — Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort have unveiled a new menu of authentic local dishes to celebrate the island’s rich culinary history and unique cuisine. Celebrating dishes originating from Old Phuket Town, the historic and cultural heart of Phuket, this new menu at the Pool House restaurant in Phuket draws on the influence of Chinese and Malaysian settlers who helped shape the culture, cuisine, architecture and fortunes of the island over a century ago.

This spicy fusion of Southern Thai cooking styles and traditional Chinese Hokkien specialties emanate from the compact warren of lively streets and intriguing alleyways, where the well-maintained and brightly colored Chinese shop-houses are now gentrified and re-imagined as boutique shops, coffee shops and fine dining restaurants. In a bygone era, the town was populated by Chinese Merchants and Tin magnates who gave rise to the popularization of this unique culinary culture and their opulent lifestyles can be experienced today within the wonderfully restored Sino-Portuguese mansions.

Known as one of the best things to do in Phuket, a tour of Baan Chinpracha House offers a unique insight into the home of a wealthy Phuketian family at the turn of the century. However, it is the Thai Hua and Peranakan museums, which offer the biggest clues to the origin of this culinary heritage with charming exhibitions charting the Phuketian and Chinese heritage of the ‘Baba Nyonya’ community in Phuket.

The Chinese merchants of yesteryear were enamored with the local Thai women and their marital unions spawned a mixed-race culture known as ‘Baba-Nyonya. Asserting a profound affect on the culture of the island, the mixed race descendants of these Chinese immigrants – ’Baba’ the term for men and ‘Nyonya’ for women – proved to be a culinary match made in heaven, forging cooking styles & ingredients for a flavorsome hybrid cuisine.

There was a growing appetite within the local Baba-Nyonya community to preserve this culinary culture so that the recipes were not lost to future generations. Their commitment to this cause was recognized in 2015 when Phuket Old Town was awarded the prestigious title of UNESCO City of Gastronomy.

“Our team of chefs often talk about the local dishes we enjoy and which restaurants in the old town serve which kind of specialty", noted Chef Jackrit Gunmol, Executive Sous Chef at Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort and a Phuket local. “This gave us the idea to create a special menu with some of our favourite dishes to serve to our guests at our five star hotel in Phuket”.

From Moo Hong, a sweet & salty stewed pork belly adapted from an aromatic Chinese ceremonial dish favored by Hokkien traders, to Krill Chu Lu, a salty skrill, shallot and coriander dish, that was passed down through generations of Phuketian Sea Gypsies, guests at the Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort can experience an authentic taste of the real Phuket.

Bai liang phad khai, stir fried Baegu leaves with egg, is unique as Beagu leaves only grow in the South of Thailand. They naturally flourish beneath the rubber trees, a delicious way for the farmers to maximize every inch of space in their plantation.

Jak Ga Jan Talay Tord Kra Tiem, stir fried crispy Mole crab with garlic & pepper. provided a tasty snack for local fisherman at Mai Khao beach. When casting a specially made net in the surf, they would land a haul of tiny Mole Crab, sometimes known as Sand Crab, and when deep fried were perfect to enjoy among their friends with cold local beer.

Each specially prepared dish has a tale to tell about local culinary culture and is exclusively available daily at the Pool House restaurant between 12 – 10 PM. The Pool House Restaurant is open to the public and diners can book direct via Chope at

No Child Left Out: Learning at All Levels

All children are involved during learning and nutrition activities.

All children are involved during learning and nutrition activities.

Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Provider Charisma Grygorczuk from Balch Springs, TX featured by the National CACFP Sponsors Association

Everyone is involved in every activity in some way. No one is left out, no matter the age.”

— Charisma Grygorczuk

AUSTIN, TX, USA, January 23, 2020 / — When Charisma Gryogorczuk’s granddaughter needed daily child care, she gladly accepted the opportunity and started her own child care business. She had been a successful entrepreneur and felt this would be the best and most rewarding business she could ever hope to open. At her child care, it is her goal to involve all the children as much as possible on different age-appropriate levels.

“I want to treat all of the children like they are my own and want do for them what I wanted to do for my granddaughter. Everyone is involved in every activity in some way. No one is left out, no matter the age.”

While focusing on social interaction skills and emotional wellness, children learn through hands-on activities, arts and crafts, music and play. One of their favorite activities is cooking class once a week. Everyone discusses the recipe and where age-appropriate, children help. Charisma strongly believes that if the children can help and actually prep their own food, they are more apt to try it.

Through her CACFP sponsor, Charisma participated in the Healthy Start, Healthy Children Program. In the program, the children participated in cooking classes and physical activities. The children loved making snack recipes and taking part in taste tests. Charisma enjoyed watching them try new foods and liking them simply because they were a part of the creation. To add to the learning, Charisma attended nutrition classes to gain new ideas and resources.

Charisma is constantly looking for ways to improve learning and keep the children active. She has applied for grants to add gardening tools and materials, cooking utensils and an outdoor classroom. In addition, when seeing an idea the children love, such as a butterfly garden, they implement that at the child care. Charisma leads by example when seeing a beneficial idea for the children and using her own initiative to be the best child care provider she can be.

CACFP is an indicator of quality child care. When children are cared for by providers who are part of the CACFP they are receiving the best nutrition available. Learn more about other CACFP providers featured in the Member Showcase at CACFP's website,

Since 1986, the National CACFP Sponsors Association (NCA) is the leading national organization for sponsors who administer the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). It provides education and support to thousands of members in the CACFP community and in particular to sponsors of all sizes from across the country. CACFP strives to improve communication between families, caregivers, sponsors and their supervising government agencies.

Changing Lives From Scratch

Little Kitchen Academy announced today that the company will open its second location and its first franchise


Through Joyful and Mindful Learning, First-of-its-Kind, Montessori-inspired Little Kitchen Academy Creates a Foundation for a Healthy Life by Teaching Practical Life Skills and Responsible Eating Choices in a Safe and Empowering Environment

Little Kitchen Academy announced today that after just six successful months in business at its flagship location in Vancouver, the company will open its second location – and its first franchise – in West Vancouver later this year. The first-of-its-kind, Montessori-inspired cooking academy for children (ages three through teen) has an ambitious growth plan to expand globally and is honored to announce its first franchise just across the bridge from the city it was founded, while talks are underway for expansion into the U.S., Europe, Mexico, Asia and the Middle East.

“We are delighted to bring our unique concept to families of West Vancouver. Our students and their families have shared such positive feedback about their inspiring and interactive experiences with us that we know we are on the right path and making an impact in teaching practical life skills, responsibility, creativity, decision-making, and how to make healthful food choices, let alone delicious dishes,” said Felicity Curin, Founder of Little Kitchen Academy.

The first franchise will be led by Owner-Operators John Doty & Steph Devlin, who also own and operate Brown’s Social House in Vancouver, BC.

“Being an authentic and meaningful brand with vision and a social conscience is essential to Little Kitchen Academy,” added Brian Curin, CEO/Co-Founder of Little Kitchen Academy. “I am not interested in expansion for the sake of growth; I am interested in fulfilling our mission of making societal impact. This requires finding like-minded, passionate franchisees who truly believe in what we are committed to doing and how we are doing it. I found that in John and Steph, who know Little Kitchen Academy very well as early investors in our business. They see the intrinsic value we are creating with our students. Cooking is a wonderful way to empower children to understand and make decisions for themselves that have a ripple effect that positively impacts their families and their communities, and develops their independence.”

While the West Vancouver location is yet to be determined, the timing is set for late summer/early fall. And a hallmark of the Little Kitchen Academy experience – the inviting, clean and modern kitchen environment – will be featured at the new location, complete with 10 individual cooking stations (aka Little Kitchens), each with its own oven, cooktop, sink, prep table, Kitchen Aid mixer, and all the equipment and utensils needed to make the “from scratch” creations. The new location also will include two other brand signature items — a community table made of more than 33,000 recycled chopsticks for students to enjoy their creations at the close of every lesson, and an eye-catching living food wall for students to grow and harvest fruits, vegetables and herbs made in their dishes.

“As early investors in Little Kitchen Academy, it was easy to see the lighting in a bottle being created with this concept and to buy into the core values and mission of the company and what we offer,” said Franchisee John Doty. “One of the best ways to empower kids is to let them make their own decisions, and one of the best ways to teach kids about eating responsibly is to teach them how to prepare their own food, and the choices, decisions and benefits of making food from scratch.” Co-owner/Franchisee Steph Devlin added: “Every question and every lesson in a kitchen is a teachable moment for a child, whether he or she is five or 15. We can’t wait to teach lifelong skills and make lifelong memories for our students at our very own Little Kitchen Academy later this year.”

Little Kitchen Academy sessions run year-round and focus on seasonal, locally grown and organic produce and ingredients, with classes running 3 hours each and are taught by age group by three instructors, who can host up to 10 students per class. The learning begins as soon as students enter the “for student chefs only” environment. Each student dons a chef coat and a fitted pair of BIRKENSTOCK kitchen shoes (one of several global brand partners) to begin his or her personalized cooking journey, which includes experimenting with math and science concepts; testing one’s reading skills; learning social etiquette and table manners while enjoying a meal together; and learning sustainable decision making as students learn about local, in-season, and organic produce, and dine at a community table made of recycled chopsticks and chairs made from recycled plastic bottles.
