SWISS brings starred cuisine from Zurichs Baur au Lac aboard

https://swiss.newsmarket.com/english...c-d977e9c2cf09

SWISS will be offering its First and Business Class travellers culinary delights in collaboration with Zurich’s traditional Baur au Lac hotel from today onwards in the latest chapter of the airline’s ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ inflight foodservice programme. The new meals have been created by top chefs Laurent Eperon and Maximilian Mller of the hotel’s Pavillon gourmet restaurant. SWISS Premium Economy Class passengers can also enjoy a range of food specialities inspired by the Zurich region.

For the next three months, Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will be offering its First and Business Class travellers culinary creations from Zurich’s world-famous Baur au Lac. The traditional five-star hotel beside Lake Zurich is, like SWISS, committed to the highest product and service quality. So the new collaboration with the hotel’s own Pavillon gourmet restaurant provides SWISS with an excellent opportunity to pamper its inflight guests at the highest level.

Laurent Eperon and Maximilian Mller, the two chefs de cuisine of the two-Michelin-star and 18-GaultMillau-point Pavillon, will be treating SWISS’s premium travellers on long-haul services from Switzerland to their modern interpretation of French haute cuisine. For their ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ creations they have also drawn strongly on specialities from Canton Zurich to help further familiarize SWISS’s customers with Switzerland’s sheer culinary variety.

“SWISS and the Baur au Lac are both closely connected with Zurich, and both put a firm and consistent emphasis on tradition and top quality,” says SWISS Head of Brand Experience Julia Hillenbrand. “I am delighted that we will be offering our guests the culinary creations of these award-winning chefs from this leading Zurich establishment over the next three months.”

“High quality combined with top-notch service are becoming more and more important to more and more people,” adds Pavillon chef de cuisine Laurent Eperon. “At the Baur au Lac we’ve been providing both for over 175 years now. So we’re especially pleased to have the opportunity, through our team-up with SWISS, to offer this experience to guests beyond our hotel, too.”

Travellers in Premium Economy Class on SWISS flights from Switzerland will also be offered an inflight menu inspired by regional culinary specialities of Canton Zurich.

An award-winning gastronomy concept for the last 20 years

SWISS has been taking the First, Business and Premium Economy Class travellers on its long-haul services on a journey of culinary discovery through Switzerland’s various regions since December 2002. Every three months a new Michelin-starred and GaultMillau-point top chef is invited to present ‘their’ canton to SWISS passengers aloft by creating a varied selection of top-quality meals with a particular focus on regional and seasonal specialities. The meals are also accompanied by wine and cheese specialities from the region concerned. In its almost 20-year success story to date, ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ has welcomed aboard a total of 75 guest chefs from every one of Switzerland’s 26 cantons.

The SWISS First, Business and Premium Economy Class menus for this latest ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ chapter are attached to this media release.

Good news and they could also do that for the inbound flights to Zurich.

Just wondering, how official this site is. In the URL, there is a typo - SWIS iso SWISS

Seems legit. TheNewsMarket is a communications company and Swiss is one of their clients. They probably host the digital assets for the menu for some reason, and somehow someone found the links to them.

The menus are linked in the press release, nothing secret here ;-)

For those of you interested: I asked LX whether pre-order meals would also be available for F; they send my the J menu and said I could request something from there, but that there is no special F pre-order service available yet. Still find that surprising.

F pre-order not available. They are working on it.
I‘ve never encountered a single instance where my requested choice is not available.

Same here. It seems like having this in F, is only for the benefit of LX and possibly to the detriment of the pax.

Dont really see how more choice and a guarantee that my choice is available would be to the detriment of the pax.

Why more choice? Its the same menu. Guarantee is good in C, in F, its never been an issue. Detrimentscenario where you pick X online, then change your mind on the plane to Y and they dont have it because they now load a lots less meals because of the online system.
