Air Canada has added Chef Antonio Park to its panel of celebrated Canadian culinary and wine talent.
Chef Park will design destination inspired meals that will be exclusively featured on select Air Canada flights to Asia and South America. Chef Park’s designs will complement Chef David Hawksworth’s and will guide Air Canada’s flight caterers in creating a selection of meal options on international flights, starting with Montreal-Tokyo-Narita, a route that links two cities he has called home.
“We’re thrilled to continue showcasing the very best of Canadian talent with Chef Park joining our team of celebrated Chefs. Apart from elevating our customers’ dining experience with destination inspired creations on Asian and South American flights, we chose to partner with Chef Park due to his passion for promoting the Canadian culinary scene and his appreciation for fresh ingredients and sustainability,” said Andrew Yiu, vice president, Product at Air Canada. “We look forward to presenting Chef Park’s unique culinary creations to customers travelling to Tokyo-Narita from Montreal in our Air Canada Signature Service, Premium Economy and Economy cabins.”
“It’s a blessing and an honour to partner with Air Canada. I’m extremely proud and humbled to be sharing my food with Air Canada’s customers flying at 30,000 feet beginning with the Montreal to Tokyo-Narita flight. It is the perfect opportunity to use Canadian ingredients and Japanese techniques, marrying the two to enhance the on-board experience,” said Chef Park. “The future of this world is education and you have to share your knowledge. Bon Appétit!”
