Lufthansa Enlists the Ritz-Carlton to make Gourmet Airplane Food
You don't often hear "gourmet" and "airplane food" in the same title, but that's because Lufthansa hasn't teamed up with the chefs of The Ritz-Carlton until now!
Naturally, creating meals that can be mass produced and still impress at 30,000+ feet is quite the culinary challenge. Some of the best chefs in the industry, including Denver's Andrés Jiménez, New York's Thomas Surowka and Jacques Sorci, DC's David Serus, San Francisco's Nathan Beriau, Boston's Clayton Van Hooijdonk, and Ritz-Carlton Vice President, Culinary Corporate Chef George McNeill teamed up to create the finest airline dining experience we've ever seen, and they held an event at the NYC loft home (above) of Barry Appelman (father of the AOL Instant Messenger) and Ildiko Sragli to kick off the collaboration and allow guests to sample the culinary masterpieces!
The First Class and Business Class menus on Lufthansa flights will now include items like:
- Omelette with Mushroom Ragout, Potato Rösti, and Bacon
- Smoked Trout Mousse with Poached Leeks and Whole Grain Mustard Vinaigrette
- Seared Cod in Artichoke and Carrot Broth with Roasted Garlic
- Spinach Stuffed Gnocchi with sautéed Cremini Mushrooms and Pine Nuts in a Vegetable Butter Sauce
