Holland America Line Celebrates Sushi Chef Andy Matsuda

In recognition of his impact on the brand, Holland America Line is elevating sushi chef Andy Matsuda to its Culinary Council, a group of elite culinary collaborators among the world’s leading food authorities.

The Culinary Council is led by the Line’s master chef Rudi Sodamin, joined by international chefs Jonnie Boer, David Burke, Elizabeth Falkner, Ethan Stowell and Jacques Torres.

“Sushi has to be made perfectly for it to be considered authentic, and Andy has transformed the sushi we serve onboard by ensuring our culinary team is expertly trained,” noted Orlando Ashford, president, Holland America Line.

Guests can enjoy Matsuda’s signature rolls at Tamarind Asian-fusion restaurant aboard several Holland America Line ships and at Tamarind’s sushi counter on MS Koningsdam.

Nieuw Statendam will establish a separate sushi bar called Nami Sushi, which will feature more rolls created exclusively by Matsuda.
