This winter, Air France is teaming up with Michelin-starred French chefs Emmanuel Renaut and Anne-Sophie Pic, alongside the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France pastry chefs Angelo Musa and Philippe Urraca, to create the menus for its most exclusive cabins. Available for passengers travelling in La Première and long-haul Business cabins, these tasty, refined dishes are available from November 2023 to February 2024. You’re going to love it.
Air France Menu - A True Culinary Journey in Business Class
The chef has created eight menus to be enjoyed on board, including a chicken supreme with sake, revealing the power of Japanese ingredients combined with local French produce, and roast parsnip – a forgotten vegetable that is now increasingly popular – with dill butter and curry combined with walnuts.
Those with a sweet tooth will love the Opera, the Black Forest or the Yuzu Entremets, created by Philippe Urraca, Meilleur Ouvrier de France.
From the French West Indies
From the French West Indies, French Guiana and the Caribbean regional network, Air France collaborates with Martinique chef Jean-Charles Brédas. The chef has come up with no fewer than twelve new dishes which will be available on board over the winter months. Creamy risotto with coconut milk, pigeon peas (a staple product of the Caribbean), roasted grouper fillet served with crunchy papaya sauerkraut, green sauce and dachine cubes… Local and seasonal products are in the spotlight.
Air France Menu - A Menu Rich in Flavours in La Première
Emmanuel Renaut, three-star chef and Meilleur Ouvrier de France, takes care of La Première. trongly inspired by Savoyard cuisine, he creates a gourmet, vibrant, colourful and resolutely modern cuisine featuring surprising and harmonious compositions.
On the menu? Eight different dishes, including farmhouse chicken confit with mushrooms and a vegetable mille-feuille, and a creamy blend of root vegetables, button mushrooms, porcini mushrooms and Beaufort, the flagship product of Savoyard cuisine.
The final touch, designed by Angelo Musa, places fruits in the foreground. We’re particularly fond of the mango, citrus and cognac baba, or the chocomûre, combining the power of pure Venezuelan dark chocolate with the tangy notes of wild blackberry.
Once again, Air France is positioning itself as an ambassador for gastronomy with its sustainable, flavourful culinary offer. The airline has teamed up with some of France’s finest chefs to offer passengers in its Business and La Première cabins a true gastronomic journey.
