MEXICO CITY, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Aeromexico, Mexico's global airline, has announced its new onboard menu for its exclusive service in Clase Premier –the carrier First Class– and Coach, designed by the Colectivo Mexicano de Cocina [Mexican Culinary Collective] led by Chef Enrique Olvera.
The Colectivo Mexicano de Cocina is made up of chefs who are most representative of the current culinary scene, such as: Mikel Alonso of Biko restaurant, Daniel Ovadía of Paxia, Edgar Núñez of Sud 777, Elena Reygadas of Rosetta, among other chefs who have earned a place for Mexico among the highest levels of contemporary world cuisine.
Aeromexico chose Enrique Olvera, currently one of the most innovative and avant-garde chefs, founder and owner of the restaurant Pujol, which now holds 20th place among the top 50, according to The World's 50 Best Restaurants.
"One of the essential aspects of my cooking is to conserve and explore the features of each ingredient. To enhance and fully realize the flavors of each dish, it is vital for the product to be very fresh, with no preservatives or processing of any kind. I found it most stimulating to design a "menu for the skies," whose dishes and ingredients would live up to the strict standards I employ in my kitchen, conserving maximum freshness and flavor. And I do believe we've done it," noted Olvera in his introduction to this new menu.
To whet the appetite, some of the dishes that Aeromexico will be offering in Clase Premier on its medium- and long-range routes such as flights to Europe, South America, Asia, New York, San Francisco and Chicago, are: shrimp in garlic with red quinoa; filet of beef with carrot pico de gallo, couscous and snap-peas; breast of chicken with oregano chimichurri, wild rice and string beans; and lettuce, string bean and potato salad.
Of this menu, Enrique Olvera noted that "this is an approach that investigates the ancestral flavors of Mexico, and a culinary repertoire born of the exuberance and tremendous diversity that geography has given us." He also underscored that "this is a light, healthy, balanced and exquisite menu, conceived for passengers who seek comfort, relaxation and a sense of wellbeing when they travel."
At the same time, Aeromexico is inaugurating its new dinner service, with a new look and design for all the utensils, offering added value to enhance the travel experience.
Consistent with its tradition of quality onboard service in Clase Premier and Coach, Aeromexico is continuing in its endeavor to provide outstanding service for its customers who will be savoring these delicious and original creations.
