Passengers aboard Air France’s business class long haul flights will enjoy a special range of meals designed exclusively for them by triple Michelin-starred chef Régis Marcon. Starting April 1, and running for six months until September 2014, passengers will be able to enjoy a selection of seasonal French dishes prepared with local ingredients.
The Air France initiative is part of the company’s push to establish itself as an ambassador for global fine cuisine. The dishes crafted by Marcon will be part one of four main meal options available to patrons. The menu will include Puy green lentils and black morels, green lentils with shrimp, braised shoulder of lamb with figs, and free-range chicken with black morels. Frequent flyers are in for a treat too — Marcon will refresh his menu every two weeks so it’s unlikely they’ll have to eat the same signature dish twice.
Marcon is known for his approach to “putting nature on the plate” and exploring the roots of French cooking, which have helped him create some of the world’s best authentic French cuisine. He will be presenting some of his gourmet creations to Air France customers on one special flight on April 22nd from Tokyo to Narita.
