Air France offering newly-designed menu in business class
Air France recently launched new menu in its cheap business class flights. The menu was introduced in October this year. Thibaut Ruggeri, winner of the Bocuse d’Or 2013 award, created the new menu. According to Air France, the newly-designed menu of five dishes is now being exclusively served on the airline’s long-haul flights.
Thibaut Ruggeri said that the menu aptly illustrates his motto in the kitchen: “Less is more!” He said that purity and eccentricity to various different presentations have been combined to help create the recipes highlighting his personality. Ruggeri is a skilled chef and has a vast experience working alongside several renowned chefs including Michel Kayser at the Alexandre, Georges Blanc at the Splendid, and Michel Guérard at Prés d’Eugénie.
The newly created dishes by Ruggeri include duckling with chestnuts and red currants, Hake with honeyed carrots and verijuice, and duck confit with snow peas and almonds. The menu would be available on flights departing from Paris. Air France said that the menu selection would be renewed twice a month to satiate the tastes of frequent travelers.
