MOSCOW, 2012-12-12 — /travelprnews.com/ — On December 11, 2012 Aeroflot gathered airline’s frequent flyers, top managers, key partners and celebrities to take part in a new anniversary onboard menu tasting ceremony.
The menu was especially designed with a help of Michelin starred chefs — Pierre Gagnaire, Alain Llorca (both from France) and Bjorn Franzen from Sweden to celebrate the 90-th Aeroflot jubilee.
For the coming 2013 spring season the chefs’ trio offered tremendous choice of the most exquisite dishes.
Now in the menu there are four kinds of soup — the famous Russian Borzch with champignons and sour crème, an old-styled cabbage soup with porcinos and fennel, a spicy soup with vegetables and Astrakhan sturgeon and an old-Moscow soup with spinach and sour crème.
Among appetizers are: Norwegian salmon bouche with pancakes and cream cheese; Norwegian salmon fillet on a lemon jelly with caviar, cranberries and shrimps; Norwegian salmon sautéed in beet-orange sauce with fresh salad and angus veal in sesame souse and beansprouts.
Newly introduced main courses were of a great success among Aeroflot passengers and guests — baked Russian polar halibut with steamed vegetables and red pepper souse; beefsteak with shitake mushrooms, steamed spinach, stewed pumpkin and carrot; chicken breast sautéed with goat cheese and figs jam followed by jasmine rice and backed sweet red peppers with Porto souse.
The world-renowned chef Kamel Benamar (head chef of «Bolshoi» and «Vanil» restaurants, owned by A.Novikov) presented his new dessert menu with millefeuilles, cherry cheesecakes and pistachio mousses with strawberries which made a perfect final for the menu tasting ceremony.
The new menu will be available on board of Aeroflot international and domestic flights starting from February 01, 2013.
