Those flying to Australia or other long-haul destinations with Lufthansa may be in for a culinary treat during September and October.
Passengers who book flights in Lufthansa’s first and business class sections may be able to sample the “exotic” thanks to a new menu created by “acclaimed” New Orleans chef John Besh.
Mr Besh runs four restaurants in New Orleans and he will be adding a touch of Creole to the in-flight offering.
Examples of the fare include spiced duck breast served with stewed quinces, creamy polenta and leafy spinach, as well as crawfish salad with Creole remoulade.
Mr Besh was the winner of the 2006 Best Chef in the Southeast award from James Beard.
Other celebrity chefs from around the world to have set the menu for Lufthansa flights have included Paul Bocuse from Lyon, Daniel Boulud from New York and Harald Wohlfahrt from Baiersbronn.
Lovers of fine food taking a holiday in Australia during August may wish to head to the Taste of Melbourne Festival.
“Bring a healthy appetite to Taste of Melbourne – an epicurean extravaganza in the Royal Exhibition Building,” explained WhatsOnWhen.
Visitors can sample signature dishes from some of the city’s top chefs.
