Business and first class passengers on Lufthansa flights from the US to Germany will soon be able to enjoy meals provided by luxury hotel chain Ritz-Carlton.
From May 1 until August 2010, the partnership will see chefs at Ritz-Carlton properties in Denver, New York, Boston and San Francisco creating dishes for Lufthansa’s premium passengers on flights from the carrier’s 18 US gateways to Germany.
The Ritz-Carlton menus will change every two months and will begin with dishes created by Andres Jimenez, chef at the Ritz-Carlton Denver.
In first class his dishes will include appetizers of seared ahi tuna and tomato white bean salad with extra virgin olive oil; and duck confit with a sherry vinaigrette.
Main courses will include pan roasted beef tenderloin and butternut squash risotto cake with porcini mushroom sauce; and parmesan crusted halibut with basil risotto cake and a white wine butter sauce.
Finally desserts will include vanilla panacotta with a strawberry consommÃ©, and Costa Rican coffee ice cream with a trio of Dulce de Leche cookies.
