Michelin-starred British chef, Tom Kerridge has designed gourmet menus for all cabin class customers travelling long-haul with British Airways throughout August.
Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ director of Brand and Customer Experience, said: “Throughout our centenary year we’ve been celebrating with customers and thanking them for making us what we are today. As August is our birthday month, we wanted to do something to add a special touch to our customers’ journeys, and we think our partnership with Tom Kerridge will do just that.
“The dishes, which are available on all our long-haul flights, have been carefully created by Tom and his team to showcase the very best of Britain and give customers the opportunity to enjoy gourmet dishes at 35,000ft.”
Kerridge said: “I’m so proud to be asked by British Airways, one of the most renowned and iconic British companies, to curate exciting on board menus for the month of August to celebrate their centenary. The dishes reflect not only my vision and what I do at my restaurants but most importantly, they represent the best of British food to the world.”
The airline’s chefs and Kerridge worked closely to ensure the dishes not only showcase culinary expertise, but also work well at altitude. The menu includes a variety of fresh seasonal ingredients, such as wild garlic and asparagus, with a focus on British provenance.
