Qatar Airways has expanded collaboration with renowned Australian chef, George Calombaris to create a new edition of Greek-inspired in-flight dining options starting 1 September 2018.
The new menus will be available to First and Business Class passengers travelling from Qatar Airways’ four gateways in Australia (Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney) to Doha, Qatar.
Qatar Airways is also working with Chef George Calombaris to feature his signature touch in the Economy Class menu, due to debut in the first quarter of 2019.
Every quarter, passengers can look forward to Calombaris’s new signature dishes that will be introduced and integrated with Qatar Airways’ in-flight menus.
Among the dishes making their debut on Qatar Airways flights is one of Calombaris’s personal favourites, Avgolemono (a classic Greek egg and lemon soup).
For the main courses, First and Business Class passengers can choose between the Bastourma Beef shortrib with onions and Potato a la greque, or the lighter Fraser Island Crab with lemon marmalade and tabbouleh.
The classic Greek mousakka will also feature in the new Greek-inspired menu which will debut in Adelaide, Sydney and Perth from 1 September, followed by Melbourne from 1 October 2018.
This is the second time Qatar Airways has partnered with Calombaris. In 2017, they presented an exclusive in-flight menu to celebrate the introduction of the A380 service on the Melbourne-Doha route.
