Bangkok Airways has partnered the Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, The Chedi Chiang Mai to launch Exclusive Chef in the Sky by Bangkok Airways 2012.

M.L.Nandhika Varavarn, Vice President - Corporate Communications of Bangkok Airways said We launched our first campaign Exclusive Chef in the Sky by Bangkok Airways in 2011 because we wanted to emphasize our boutique service angle as a full service airline ... As we received good feedback, we decided to continue this campaign for the second year. The two world-class chefs from Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui and The Chedi, Chiang Mai have created special menus to be served on our Blue Ribbon Class (Business Class) for 6 months from July December 2012. The honorary committee from Bangkok Airways, Bangkok Air Catering and Thailands famous food critique, Mr. Santi Svetavimala, selected the best 12 dishes (6 from each hotel) to be served to our passengers.

The 12 dishes will be served to Blue Ribbon class passengers on Bangkok-Samui, Bangkok-Phnom Penh, Bangkok-Maldives, Bangkok-Dhaka, Bangkok-Bengaluru, Samui-Singapore and Samui-Hong Kong routes.

The menu from Four Seasons Samui will be served from July to September while the menu from The Chedi will be served from October to December this year.

Chef Alex Gares, Executive Chef, Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui said, Its a great honour for me to be participating in this project with Bangkok Airways. Its fascinating for me to learn about a completely different way of cooking from the Bangkok Air Catering team, and Im excited to have the opportunity to combine my expertise with theirs to bring a new product to their passengers.

I always find Thai food to be inspirational, and of course, delicious too. I love making new food discoveries and coming up with different ways to use local ingredients, herbs and spices. In Koh Samui in particular, both locals and visitors love to enjoy fresh seafood, so my inspiration for the dishes that will be served on-board Bangkok Airways is exactly this, combining seafood and Thai herbs as the main ingredients. I hope you enjoy my creations Chef Alex added.

Bangkok Airways operates business class or Blue Ribbon Class with Airbus A319 which has 12 business class seats and 108 economy class seats. The Blue Ribbon Class is available on various domestic and international destinations including Samui, Singapore, Hong Kong, Phnom Penh, Bengaluru, Dhaka, and Maldives.
