First Class and Business Class passengers
travelling with Swiss on intercontinental flights from Switzerland
before 4 December 2018 are in for a special treat, as menus
designed by Mike Wehrle, Culinary Director of Switzerland’s
Bürgenstock Hotels & Resort Lake Lucerne will be offered as part
of the “Swiss – Taste of Switzerland” program.
Chef Wehrle has
created dishes with an international perspective that take
inspiration from the luxury resort’s eight
restaurants: RitzCoffier by Marc Haeberlin, Spices Kitchen &
Terrace, Sharq Oriental, Taverne 1879, Verbena, Oak Grill, the
Golf Restaurant and the Hammetschwand Restaurant.
Swiss First Class travellers can look forward to
starting their meal with a choice of six first courses: Marinated
Lobster with Cauliflower Panna Cotta or Quail Galantine Perfumed
with Asian Spices. Three of the four main courses are: Black Cod
with White Olives, Eggplant Tagine or Veal Tenderloin with Black
Truffle Sauce. A selection of cheeses from the canton of Nidwalden
will be followed by either Chocolate Marquise with Poached Pears
or Berry Tartlet with Meringue and Blueberry Sorbet.
In Business Class, Swiss passengers will be able
to enjoy a
choice of three first courses including Vitello Tonnato or Salmon
Trout Tataki with Pumpkin and Chervil Root. Two of the four main
course are: Beef Tenderloin with Valle Maggia Pepper Sauce or
Pikeperch Fillet with Noilly Prat Sauce. To end the meal, a cheese
course and then a Passion Fruit Cheesecake.
With more than 25 years of experience at
Michelin-starred restaurants and international luxury hotels,
Swiss guest chef Mike Wehrle oversees a team of 95 chefs and
manages all eight of the Bürgenstock Resort’s restaurants as well
as its banqueting facilities.
“It’s an honor for my team and me to create
meals for Swiss and its discerning passengers,” said Culinary
Director Mike Wehrle.
Meals will be accompanied by French and Spanish
wines as well as two wines from Lucerne: the 2017 Müller Thurgau
and the 2016 Pinto Merlot Barrique both from the Brunner Winery.
“We’re very pleased that there will be a taste
of the Bürgenstock Resort onboard Swiss flights for the next three
months,” explained, Managing Director Bruno H. Schöpfer. “Once
Swiss passengers taste Mike’s menus, they will want to try his
cuisine at our eight restaurants!”
