Emirates has introduced a new festive menu available across all classes for flights from Dubai to Australia, Europe and the US. The new menu will be served throughout December.

Passengers flying in first and business class will receive poached king prawns with Marie Rose sauce and fennel with lemon and herbs, along with a main course of rolled turkey buffé with chestnut stuffing, cranberry jus lié, pumpkin mash and Brussels sprouts with turkey rashers and cream. Desserts including chocolate pudding, chocolate and chestnut torte and Yule log will also be offered.

In addition to these meals, first class passengers will also have the option of hot chocolate handmade with 100 per cent Valrhona chocolate, prepared by chocolatier David Franco.

Meanwhile, economy passengers will be served rolled turkey buffé with cranberry jus lié, mashed potatoes, chicken sausage and seasonal vegetables, with festive chocolate pudding with spiced ginger custard offered as a dessert.
