American Airlines announced a partnership with the James Beard Foundation that will bring new and diverse culinary experiences to the carrier’s passengers.

The foundation is a non-profit culinary arts organization named in honor of James Beard, who was known as the “Dean of American Cookery.” The foundation offers scholarships to aspiring chefs, operates the James Beard Awards, and organizes guest chef dinners.

“We’re honored to work with their roster of award-winning chefs who embody diversity, modernism and sustainable practices in the culinary world today,” said Janelle Anderson, the airline’s vice president of marketing.

The first alumnus to work with American is Sarah Grueneberg of Monteverde Restaurant & Pastificio.  Passengers traveling on flights to Europe, South American, and on premium transcon routes from New York City in Flagship First and Flagship Business, the airline’s international and transcontinental first-class and business-class cabins, will see Grueneberg’s menus.  Visitors to Flagship Lounges and Flagship First Dining will see the new menus starting December 3.
