German-based carrier Lufthansa has announced that it is to appoint a British Michelin-starred chef to cater for its business and first class passengers.

Chris Staines, who was previously head chef at the London restaurant foliage, will begin to provide dishes as of January 2009.

Having served celebrities such as Madonna, Mr Staines’ signature dishes include fettuccini pasta and beef wellington with truffle jus.

Lufthansa’s vice-president of sales and services for Europe, Dr Karsten Benz, said: “[Mr] Staines will be showcasing the best of British and it is fitting that the food from the home country of our European headquarters is now being recognised in this way.”

Mr Staines was one of the youngest chefs to pick up a Michelin star at the age of 27.

Lufthansa is the largest airline in Europe in terms of overall passengers carried and offers flights to Cape Town, Johannesburg, India and Thailand, among other destinations.
