Renowned chef designs menu for Swiss International Air Lines

Swiss International Air Lines has announced a collaboration with famed chef Mattias Roock, who will design meal service for passengers in the carrier's business and first class cabins, reports PAX International.

Roock is the chef de cuisine at the Kampinski Grand Hotel des Bains in the Swiss resort town of St. Moritz. Although his cooking style reportedly encompasses everything from Mediterranean tapas to Alpine cuisine, the menu he will create for Swiss Air Lines will focus on the flavors of Grisons, one of the cantons of Switzerland.

Business class passengers will be treated to a smoked duck breast served with a pear and celery salad, balsamic jelly and pine nuts. Meanwhile, those in the first class cabin will enjoy crayfish cocktail with asparagus tips and mountain lamb with ratatouille. Side dishes include a surpreve of poussin with walnut pesto and a kohlrabi and potato ragout, while a honey parfait on pistachio cake with blueberry compote will be served for dessert.

Roock's meals, which will be accompanied by a selection of wines and cheeses made in the region, are slated to be served on Swiss Air Lines through February 2011.
