First Class Chocolates now Available on Gulf Air

Travel News Asia Tuesday, 28 August 2007

Gulf Air, a five-times-in-a-row winner of the SkyTrax Best Onboard Catering Award for First Class, has just introduced one more delicacy to its First Class menu.

A select range of handmade premium chocolates will be served onboard for First Class passengers from now on, to be supplied by Bahraini chocolatier-couple Ali Rashid and Marjo Rashid under an exclusive arrangement.

Gulf Air Executive Vice President Marketing and Sales Lee Shave, said, We understand well our premium passengers, who not only have discerning tastes and but also expect certain exclusivity when travelling with us. The chocolate range produced by Ali and Marjo, who are trained in Holland in chocolate-making, fits this bill. They have recreated the European chocolate-making art with a Middle Eastern finesse right here in Bahrain.

Passengers can indulge themselves tasting some of the unique and exotic couverture chocolate combinations, developed and perfected by the couple, such as Zanzabil ginger, Muhallabiah, Caramel delight and Hazelnut cream.

We use the finest quality ingredients sourced from Switzerland and other European countries and personally create our combinations to ensure our chocolates provide a long-lasting experience to Gulf Air customers, said Ali Rashid.
