Swiss welcomes Canton Geneva aboard

Inflight guests the sophisticated creations of one of the best culinary ambassadors of Canton Geneva for the airline of Switzerland
Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will be serving culinary delights from the kitchens of The Woodward, Geneva’s newest five-star hotel, to First and Business Class guests on its long-haul flights from Switzerland for the next three months. The select and original creations are the work of Olivier Jean, the hotel’s executive chef, and have been inspired by the meals he concocts for its L’Atelier Robuchon restaurant, in which he subtly blends French haute cuisine with Asian influences and local specialities. The restaurant is already the proud holder of a Michelin star and 15 GaultMillau points.
Fine dining from L’Atelier Robuchon
“We are delighted to offer our inflight guests the sophisticated creations of L’Atelier Robuchon at the five-star The Woodward hotel,” says SWISS’s Head of Brand Experience Julia Hillenbrand. “In Olivier Jean we have secured the services of one of the best culinary ambassadors of Canton Geneva. And as The Airline of Switzerland, we are particularly pleased to welcome the ‘Romandie’ back aboard.”
SWISS Business travellers can look forward to such fine delights as poached char with lemongrass sauce, sesame sushi rice, sugar snap peas and roasted squash. SWISS First guests will enjoy the likes of miso-marinated pike-perch with port wine sauce, baked polenta, shallot confit and pak choi.
SWISS Premium Economy customers on services from Switzerland can opt for a three-course meal featuring specialities from the Geneva region, such as a main course of Geneva-style chicken with spätzli and green beans.
Over 20 years of gourmet dining aloft
SWISS has been taking the First, Business and Premium Economy Class travellers on its long-haul services from Switzerland on a journey of culinary discovery through its home country’s various regions since December 2002. Every three months a new Michelin-starred and GaultMillau-point top chef is invited to create a varied selection of top-quality dishes from their ‘home’ canton, with a particular focus on regional and seasonal specialities. The meals are also accompanied by wines and cheeses from the region concerned. In its 20-year success story to date, ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ has welcomed aboard 81 guest chefs representing every one of Switzerland’s 26 cantons.
