Finnair Partners Bocuse dOr Candidate as New Signature Menu Chef

Finnair has partnered Chef Eero Vottonen for its latest Signature Menu collaboration.

The Signature Menu cooperation with Chef Eero Vottonen will bring Nordic elements to Finnairs long-haul business class customers flying out of Helsinki to all destinations as of 11 January 2017.

Eero has fast become one of the best chefs in Scandinavia and we are very excited to offer our long-haul business class passengers with his exceptional food, said Maarit Kernen, Head of In-Flight Service at Finnair. With next year marking Finlands centennial anniversary, its a great opportunity for us to collaborate with Finlands candidate for the Bocuse dOr competition. Wed like to wish Eero all the best as he sets his sights on the final preparations for the prestigious event in January.

Last year, Chef Eero Vottonen was selected as Finlands candidate for the prestigious Bocuse dOr competition taking place in Lyon, France every second year. The Bocuse DOr is arguably the biggest culinary competition in the world, bringing 24 chefs from different countries to compete on the international stage.

During his career, Vottonen has worked in the top kitchens of Finland including restaurants such as Chez Dominique, Luomo, G.W. Sundmans and Olo. 

Throughout the past few years, I've been fortunate enough to have the chance to work with many top chefs and Ive learned a wide variety of ways and views on food through these experiences, said Chef Eero Vottonen, Finlands candidate for the 2017 Bocuse dOr competition. The philosophy I bring to cooking is actually quite simple, the flavor always comes first and I want to use quality ingredients that are sourced from nearby suppliers.
