Emirates cabin crew member, Jeeye Kang, has emerged the airline’s Biggest Foodie, with her winning recipe fit for a king, to be served on board for three months this year.
Jeeye, a Korean national, has received the ultimate reward with her signature dish ‘Tofu Royale’ being featured in Emirates’ First Class menu, throughout April 2019, on the Dubai-Seoul route.
To mark the launch and success of the Emirates Food Channel on its inflight entertainment system ice, the airline held a competition for its employees to show off their culinary skills while providing an opportunity for engagement and recognition.
Jeeye put her gastronomic expertise to the test when she presented her gourmet recipe and explained the rich story behind it in her submission for the contest.
Tofu, chicken, morel mushrooms, boiled egg yolk for the topping and pine nuts as a garnish, comprise the luxurious and flavourful entrée.
A drizzling of sesame oil and truffle oil enhance the flavour of the recipe, which will be served along with dakjuk (chicken congee), a popular Korean porridge loved by people of all ages.
As Emirates refreshes its menus monthly, Tofu Royale will feature onboard for three months this year, throughout April, August and December, on the Dubai -Seoul route.
Emirates flies daily between Dubai and Incheon International Airport, operated by a three-class Airbus A380 aircraft.
