KLM to Serve Meals by Top Dutch Chef
KLM will serve meals created by Chef Richard Ekkebus to its World Business Class passengers, beginning on December 1, 2012. The Dutch chef is currently the director of culinary operations and food and beverage at the restaurant Amber in the Landmark Mandarin Oriental hotel in Hong Kong.
In the past, KLM has served dishes from Dutch chefs such as Sergio Herman, Jonnie Boer, and Mario Ridder. Erik Varwijk, managing director of KLM, said that although Richard Ekkebus is currently residing in Hong Kong, he will reflect the KLM spirit with his Dutch roots.
The chef’s dishes will be served to World Business Class customers on all intercontinental flights out of Amsterdam, from December 1, 2012, until the end of September 2013, as well as on flights out of Hong Kong.
