ANA Brings Haute-Patisserie to the Sky

Chef Pierre Hermé caters delicious desserts for first class passengers

All Nippon Airways, known for becoming the first airline to offer in-flight draft beer service, has recruited French chef Pierre Hermé to cater an exclusive dessert menu for international first-class travelers this summer.

Pastry chef Hermé joins the list of master chefs who have collaborated with major airlines to help transform in-flight menus.

Hermé, known as the ‘Picaso’ of pastry, has designed Haute Patisserie in the sky, a trio of mouthwatering desserts. The pâtissier has crafted his first dish with a mix of raw and stewed fruits poached in Sarawak pepper syrup. The second dessert is green tea custard with pan-fried chestnuts. The last dessert of the trio is a bittersweet chocolate ‘Yu’ tart.

Those unable to travel first class can taste Herme’s creations for a limited time at Bar Chocolat at La Porte Aoyama boutique in Tokyo, Hermé's flagship store in Japan.
