Lufthansa has retained the services of one of Europe’s most exciting and creative cookery talents for the airline’s Star Chefs programme: Michelin-starred Marc Fosh, the British master chef, has lived and worked on Majorca for 20 years. Aside from two renowned restaurants, he runs a cookery school with adjacent delicatessen and an exclusive catering service on the Balearic island in the Mediterranean. As the Lufthansa Star Chef, he will be offering his sophisticated, Spanish-inspired cuisine on long-haul flights in First and Business Class in November and December.
Starters served from an étagère in First Class range from salad of cod with oranges, black olives and sherry dressing to Cecina de Leon, grilled courgettes and shaved manchego cheese or mixed vegetable terrine on pine-nut vinaigrette with artichoke mousse. After salad or frothed watercress soup with croutons, the choice of main dish varies from braised cheek of beef garnished with olives and leek accompanied by mashed celery to saffron-crusted halibut with sauce bouillabaisse, bell pepper and black Venus rice or tian of eggplant, couscous and tomatoes with Mediterranean vegetables. As a mouth-watering finale, the dessert consists of truffle cream of chocolate and olive oil with fleur de sel, raspberry and bell pepper jelly or cream of lemon salt with cherry and rosewater sorbet and Ducca hazelnuts.
