One year after introducing the new seat in its Business (Affaires) cabins, Air France calls upon the magic of French chefs to offer Business class customers exceptional dishes on long-haul flights departing from Paris-Charles de Gaulle. For the next six months, beginning December 1, 2011, Joel Robuchon will serve as the first of Air France’s ambassadors of the art of French gastronomy.

The Chef’s culinary creations, one of the four hot meal choices offered on board, will be renewed every ten days. 

In a special preview, Air France unveils some of the signature dishes of Joel Robuchon coming soon to its Business class menus:

  • Basque shrimp and turmeric-scented pasta with lemon grass
  • Chicken breast in green curry sauce, poppy seed rice, carrots and shiitake mushrooms
  • Crayfish pasta with Nantua sauce

With 27 Michelin stars, Joel Robuchon is at the head of more than 20 establishments, from gourmet restaurants to gastronomic workshops, featuring innovative concepts in which exquisite food melds easily with a lively and friendly atmosphere. He is an advocate for the "sublimely simple," the spirit of combining product quality with ease of execution.

As described by Joel Robuchon on the onboard menu, "a simple recipe, absent the superfluous, with a purity through which the full flavor of each ingredient is fully expressed".
