Photo Essay: Behind the Scenes in Transaero’s Imperial Class Kitchens
Transaero Airlines is the only Russian airline that offers an international first class cabin and service. Available on flights to over a dozen cities, including Beijing, London, New York, Paris, Toronto, and Vladivostok, Imperial Class offers passengers a standard that is modeled after what Russia’s imperial families’ might practice today.
The meals served in Imperial Class on flights were designed by Dmitry Yeremeev, chef of one of the best restaurants in Moscow, Café Pushkin, which is part of restaurant group Maison Dellos.
Imperial Class meals are served on tableware produced by the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory and the Gus-Khrustalny Crystal Factory, both purveyors to the Russian Imperial Court.
The menu is changed every six months and Frequent Business Traveler previewed the upcoming summer menu at Turandot, which is also part of the Maison Dellos family, with Chef Yeremeev presenting each dish.
Here’s a look at the offerings in the new menu and a behind-the-scenes tour of his kitchens.
