From November 2023, Air France will be unveiling new menus in its La Première and long-haul Business cabins.
On departure from Paris, the great French Michelin-starred chefs Emmanuel Renaut and Anne-Sophie Pic will be creating exceptional dishes for Air France customers, alongside the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France pastry chefs Angelo Musa and Philippe Urraca.
On departure from international stations, Air France is also continuing to develop exceptional partnerships. For the first time, the airline is offering new dishes by Jean-Charles Brédas.
The chef will sign the entire Business cabin menu on departure from Pointe à Pitre, Fort de France, Saint Martin and Cayenne, as well as on flights on the airline's regional Caribbean network. In 2023, Jean-Charles Brédas is the 18th chef to work with Air France.
To create these menus, the chefs work together with Servair, the world leader in in-flight catering, using fresh, local produce that varies according to the season.
In a responsible approach, the meat, poultry, dairy products and eggs on each menu are of French origin, and the fish is from sustainable fisheries on departure from Paris. In addition, vegetarian menus are systematically available in every travel cabin on all the airline's flights.

In the long-haul Business cabin, Anne-Sophie Pic is creating new culinary delights for Air France customers. This season, the triple Michelin-starred chef has created eight menus to be enjoyed on board, including a chicken supreme with sake, revealing the power of Japanese ingredients combined with local French produce, and roast parsnip - a forgotten vegetable that is now increasingly popular - with dill butter and curry combined with walnuts.
For the first time, Air France is also entrusting a top pastry chef with the signature desserts available in the Business cabin. Philippe Urraca, Meilleur Ouvrier de France, has created an Opera, a Black Forest and a Yuzu Entremets to round off this high-flying culinary experience.

Since 1 November 2023, the airline has also been offering new dishes by Martinique chef Jean-Charles Brédas in the Business cabin on flights departing from the French West Indies (Pointe à Pitre, Fort de France, Saint Martin) and French Guiana (Cayenne) to Paris, as well as on flights on the regional Caribbean network linking Cayenne to Fort de France, Pointe à Pitre to Miami and Pointe à Pitre to Montreal.
For Air France, the chef has come up with no fewer than twelve new dishes which will be available on board over the coming months, including a creamy risotto with coconut milk, pigeon peas - a staple product of the Caribbean - almonds and giraumon, as well as a roasted grouper fillet served with crunchy papaya sauerkraut, green sauce and dachine cubes.
For each dish, the chef has taken care to favour local and seasonal produce, in line with the company's standards.
