First Flight-
Starters:
Red tuna tataki in a white vitello sauce with anchovies, hard boiled egg and dried cherry tomatoes
Buffalo mozzarella with roasted aubergine and sautéed pepper over a base of gazpacho, served with rosemary focaccia croutons


Mains:
Honey mustard marinated salmon accompanied by celeriac mousseline, carrots, edamame and sundried cherry tomatoes
Rigatoni pasta in a zucchini creamy sauce, with sundried tomato and mozzarella cheese
Turkey roasted breast and braised thigh served with a traditional Christmas stuffing on a cranberry demi-glace

Second Flight-

Starters:
Prawn salad with mango and sweet bell pepper, garnished with a Thai style mayonnaise
German potato salad, served with quails eggs, sun-dried tomatoes, black olives and sweet bell pepper, dressed with lime


Mains:

"Vegan bolognese" and "three cheese" in the same dish! Are there three different types of vegan cheeses?

lol. For all of Spain's food offerings, IB's AI/intern written J menu is terrible. Just like the lounge food really.

tuna tataki (jap) in a white vitello sauce (ita); (con)fusion? tonnato-tonnato? isn't vitello always white and always has eggs and anchovies? and why dry the cherrry tomatoes. what a waste of fresh tuna, which is in season/'almadraba'.

Buffalo mozzarella with roasted aubergine and sautéed pepper over a base of gazpacho, served with rosemary focaccia croutons.
Again mostly italian...with gazpacho..? So many flavourful Spanish cheeses that would pair nicely with roasted eggplants and peppers, with picos, and gazpacho on the side for a platter, but they come up with this instead.

Honey mustard marinated salmon accompanied by celeriac mousseline, carrots, edamame and sundried cherry tomatoes
edamame ? better if they used it for the teriyaki salmon dish, and save it for the upcoming JP flight. Why not fish and pil pil sauce?

Rigatoni pasta in a zucchini creamy sauce, with sundried tomato and mozzarella cheese
actually reads the least weird.

Turkey roasted breast and braised thigh served with a traditional Christmas stuffing on a cranberry demi-glace
haha, the frozen stuff is expiring and has to be used up...easter lamb too much trouble...

Prawn salad with mango and sweet bell pepper, garnished with a Thai style mayonnaise
why thai, not not a peruvian ceviche/tigers milk that IB flies to.

German potato salad, served with quails eggs, sun-dried tomatoes, black olives and sweet bell pepper, dressed with lime
The russian potato salad is a classic, but no, it has to be german...with lime? why.

Grilled beef tenderloin on a green bell pepper sauce, served with pumpkin puree and sautéed vegetables
Spain serves steak typically with roasted red peppers, so why go green, or they were thinking of padron? pumpkin puree in april?

Grilled salmon in a teriyaki sauce with toasted sesame seeds, served with basmati rice and grilled red bell peppers
Why basmati and not japanese/round? funny this one has the red peppers.

Three cheese ravioli with vegan bolognese sauce and spring vegetables
Actually Spanish company Heura does make vegan 'meat' so at least there's something Spanish about this.

Such a long post - Lots of superlative words and complaints but IB is miles ahead of US carriers. Be thankful.

I'm doing an EP run MAD-GVA-MAD in J next month so looking forward to see what they'll feed me.

Also have a W flight JFK-MAD in September that should be interesting, as I've only ever flown Y and J with IB and don't know their W culinary offerings.

OPO-MAD

Was pretty impressed with this chilled dinner for a 45 minute flight on a regional jet operated by Air Norstrum.
My choices were "meat or tuna".

Menus have landed for my EP day trip in two weeks, just sharing here in case anyone has feedback:

MAD-GVA (breakfast)
Starter
Creamy red berries yoghurt
Main
Plain omelette accompanied with sautéed mushrooms and grilled tomato with Hollandaise sauce
Dessert
Selection of fresh seasonal fruits

Honestly the idea of a plain omelette doesn't excite me and I'm tempted to order a KSML for breakfast.

GVA-MAD (lunch)
Starter
Seared prawn on a bed of 'mojo picón' paprika sauce
Mains
On board you can select one of the following dishes:
Roasted chicken breast served on a grilled corn mousseline with sautéed vegetables
Potato and Manchego cheese gratin served with zucchini sauce, sautéed edamame and green peas
Dessert
White chocolate and lime cake with red berry coulis
