Finnair is continuing its Signature Chef programme, introducing for the first time a signature menu designed by a Korean chef.

The signature menu created by Korean chef Sung-Yeol Nam is available in business class on Finnair’s flights from Seoul to Helsinki from 9 May.

Seoul-based Chef Nam has created a menu which represents his food philosophy of traditional Korean food with a modern twist and a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients.

The first menu, available from May to July 2018 will feature beef rolls with young greens as an appetiser, followed by a main course with seabass Jeon served with grilled spring onion and Romanesco sauce.

“Our route to Seoul celebrates its 10-year anniversary this year. I am delighted that we can celebrate it together with our customers with the beautiful menu created by Chef Nam,” said Maarit Keränen, head of in-flight service at Finnair.

Chef Nam said he finds inspiration from the ingredients and food he grew up with, adding “I hope that my dishes will bring joy and comfort for those longing for home, but also appeal to those who are not so familiar with Korean cuisine.”
