BA and Tom Kerridge cook up gourmet menus

0

As part of its centenary celebrations, British Airways has teamed up with Michelin-starred British chef, Tom Kerridge, to design gourmet menus for customers travelling with the airline throughout August – the airline’s birthday month.

The menus, which feature great British flavours, will be available in every cabin on all long-haul flights, providing customers with the option to enjoy a dish designed by Tom Kerridge for each course, including customers travelling in economy class (World Traveller), who will be offered the choice of a Tom Kerridge main meal to accompany the normal seasonal starter and desert available that month.

The airline’s chefs and Tom Kerridge have worked to ensure the dishes 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.

The menus include:

First class

  • Loch Fyne smoked salmon tartare with smoked mayonnaise, seeded cracker and quail egg
  • Fillet of halibut with roasted cucumber, girolle mushrooms, salad cream, accompanied by a classic Caesar Salad with sourdough croutons and pickled anchovies
  • Milk chocolate and amaretto tart with salted caramel and white chocolate sauce
