Air France has released details of the chefs which will design its business class and La Premiere (first class) menus in 2019.
The carrier will partner with a total of seven Michelin-starred chefs on long-haul flights departing Paris, who will “help design the menus, choose the products and create the recipes”.
In La Premiere, passengers will be offered dishes by Michel Roth – two Michelin-starred chef and owner of The Bayview Restaurant in Geneva – between January and March.
These will be followed from April to June by creations by the late Joel Robuchon, who died in August 2018, as Air France honours the memory of “a visionary and virtuoso chef”.
From July to September LA Premiere customers will be offered dishes by Regis Marcon, owner of the three Michelin-starred restaurant Le Clos des Cimes in Saint-Bonnet-le-Froid in the Haute-Loire.
Finally between October and December first class passengers will be treated to dishes by the three Michelin-starred Emmanuel Renaut, founder of Flocons de sel in Mégève in the Haute-Savoie.
Meanwhile in business class three Michelin-starred Anne-Sophie Pic – who opened La Dame de Pic London at the Four Seasons Ten Trinity Square in 2017 – will create dishes between January and March.
This will be followed by menus by three Michelin-starred Arnaut Lallement between April and June, and Guy Martin of Le Grand Véfour in Paris from July to September, before Michel Roth then creates dishes for the business class cabin between October and December.
