Qatar airways yesterday officially introduced their line-up of globally renowned chefs to their unrivalled 5-star service. Celebrated Chefs Nobu Matsuhisa, Vineet Bhatia, Ramzi Choueiri and Tom Aikens are set to delight customers on Qatar Airways flights with their spectacular signature dishes
Handpicked to set a new standard for dining in the sky while representing the finest international cuisine from every corner of the world, the all-star team of culinary ambassadors has collaborated exclusively with Qatar Airways to create the ‘Qatar Airways Culinary World Menu’ – a new range of tempting signature dishes to satisfy the tastes of the airline’s discerning passengers.
Chef Ramzi, from Lebanon, brings his exquisite experience of Middle East cuisine to the fore; Mumbai-born Chef Vineet has his unique blend of exotic Indian food; Chef Aikens, from the UK, provides his own variety of European culinary offering; and Chef Nobu, from Japan, adds a touch of Asian fusion cuisine to Qatar Airways’ ambassadorial line-up.
The chefs were unveiled yesterday at an international press conference in Doha, Qatar Airways’ hub city, where they delighted the gathered media with a live cooking demonstration of some of their favourite dishes.
Having been selected to create a unique and diverse menu for all international flights, the renowned chefs spent several months adapting and testing their specialities for Qatar Airways’ passengers. Their menus have begun to be rolled out on flights to and from Doha International Airport.
The chefs took into account not only the flavours, textures, arrangements, aromas and tastes required for a memorable dining experience, but also how the taste buds are altered at 35,000 feet, and what types of food are most suited to long-haul flights.
The highly celebrated team consists of chefs that have gained a distinguished list of accolades including, multiple Michelin Star winners, multi-award winning authors, TV broadcasters, successful restaurateurs and even a Guinness Book of World Recorder holder.
The exquisite gourmet offering, already available on selected flights, will be introduced to passengers onboard the airline’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliner when the next generation aircraft starts flying in Qatar Airways’ colours in the coming months.
