Mario Elias Arrives at Brussels Airlines with New Gastronomic Experience
Something exquisite is coming to Brussels Airlines. From 1 July, Brussels Airlines' Business Class long-haul flights passengers will enjoy a unique gastronomic experience created by Belgian chef Mario Elias, of the restaurant Le Cor de Chasse.
Brussels Airlines has been a flying ambassador for Belgium for years. On board of its flights the airline offers a selection of Belgian beers, wines, pralines, waffles and cookies. The collaboration with Mario Elias completes this picture. The chef thus becomes the thirteenth Star Chef since the start in 2013, and succeeds Tim Boury.
For the starter, the travellers in Business Class will be able to choose from smoked trout (accompanied by Jangaji of daikon and sour cream) or chicken fillet cooked at low temperature (with Barley, fennel and seaweed salad and caviar tomatoes).
For the main course, they can choose from braised veal fillet (accompanied by candied aubergine, peas, mozzarella, cherry cream and toasted bread gnocchi), or saithe cooked on the skin (with green asparagus, risotto and Noilly Prat sauce with lovage oil),
Other main course dishes are soba noodles (accompanied by white asparagus, broccolini, cherry tomatoes and green curry sauce with coconut). The dessert is a pistachio ganache, pearl barley, raspberry custard and passion fruit coulis.
The wines accompanying the new Business Class menu were selected by Master of Wine Jan De Clercq.
