Lufthansa's ‘Tasting Heimat’ menu

Lufthansa has unveiled its new short and medium-haul business class menus which it says have been “inspired by German metropolises”.

The ‘Tasting Heimat’ menus (heimat translating as “home” or “homeland”) launch on September 1, and will change “not only weekly, but also on the outward and return flights”.

According to Lufthansa the menus have been inspired by the cities of Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf and Leipzig, and feature “German classics with unusual components”.

To this end customers will be offered dishes including:

  • A shrimp salad with a beetroot and potato terrine, inspired by Hamburg’s sea breeze
  • Frankfurt’s classic “Grie Soß” (green sauce) with young kale, a poached egg and French Macaire potatoes
  • An interpretation of the traditional dish “Leipziger Allerlei”, as a chicken salad with celeriac, juniper and black walnuts.

The carrier said that the dishes were created by “young star chefs” Julia Komp and Dennis Puchert alongside the Gategroup culinary team.

Highlighting the menu’s sustainable attributes, Lufthansa said that the ingredients come predominantly from the regions around Frankfurt and Munich, adding that the dishes would be offered without the use of disposable plastics.

Earlier this year the carrier unveiled its new buy-on-board menu for short and medium-haul economy passengers.
