Passengers in the first and business class cabins on Swiss International Air Lines will soon be able to enjoy a new in-flight meal service that reflects the cuisine of Switzerland, reports SkyClub News.
The new menu will be crafted by Stefan Meier, an acclaimed chef who works at the restaurant Rathauskeller in the town of Zug and has won a high 16-point rating from French restaurant guide Gault Millau.
Meier's cuisine, which stems from the culinary tradition of Central Switzerland, will be served on Swiss flights between March 2 and the beginning of June. Travelers sitting in the first class cabin will be able to dine on pike and prawn terrine with a lemongrass sauce, while business class passengers will be served pan-fried pike-perch fillets in a wild garlic sauce.
In addition to the fish entrees, premium passengers will also be able to sample Swiss-made cheeses like Zuger Weinkäse and Hünenberger Camembert. Cherries, a common ingredient in Swiss cuisine, will also appear in the menu, particularly in the Zuger Kirschtorte cherry cake and local kirsch liquor.
