Brussels Airlines is to continue its culinary collaboration with Belgian chef Tim Boury to create gastronomic experiences for Business Class customers on its long-haul flights.
Following a successful first collaboration in 2020, Boury returns to create four different menus throughout 2021 for Brussels Airlines’ Business Class guests on intercontinental flights.
“We operated a reduced number of flights this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so we unfortunately have not been able to share Tim’s kitchen with our wide audience of customers. The guests who did get to enjoy Tim’s culinary treats, raved about the quality and taste. That is why we decided to renew our collaboration. We are very happy that Tim decided to accept the challenge again and we look forward to top-notch Belgian cuisine on board of our flights,” commented Tanguy Cartuyvels, Head of Customer Experience and Product at Brussels Airlines.
Boury will work with local and seasonal produce to promote Belgian gastronomy.
For the first months of the year, Boury has devised a menu consisting of an apéro bite made of Gougères Brokkeloud Roeselare cheese, a choice of brioche with smoked eel and chicory or braised veal tenderloin served with rocket and stuffed tomato as a starter, followed by three choices for the main course: Veal cheek with fondant potatoes, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts or cod fish with pumpkin, vadouvan spices and wild rice or a vegetarian lasagne with parsnip, celeriac, Jerusalem artichoke and porcini mushroom. The meal is rounded off with a dessert of white chocolate, banana and blackcurrant.
