DSC_0750 (1)Air France announced it is partnering with restaurateur and chef Daniel Boulud for its meal service on flights from the United States.

The dishes to be served in La Première, the airline’s first-class cabin, will change every three months and include Atlantic lobster accompanied by curried coconut sauce, black rice, and bok choy; Provençal lamb chop, served with zucchini pesto, tomato, and cheese polenta; and sea bass in vine leaves, a za’atar mixture of spices, faro, and grape.

Business-class fare will rotate every two weeks and include salmon with fennel, chickpeas, and sumac; Moroccan chicken tagine accompanied by lemon, cauliflower, and couscous; and braised chicken Basquaise with chorizo, peppers, and saffron rice.

The new menus will be offered starting today in the airline’s first- and business-class cabins on long-haul flights from 11 cities in North America to provide “a better in-flight experience,” the chef said in a statement. “I hope Air France travelers will find my dishes to be soulful and delicious,” he added.
