Qatar Airways hires Michelin starred chefs to design new in-flight menu

Qatar Airways has recruited an all-star lineup of  international chefs including Nobu Matsuhisa and Tom Aikens ( the youngest Chef in the UK to earn two Michelin stars), Lebanese Ramzi  Choeiri and Vineet Bhatia (only chef in India to obtain two Michelin stars) to create  a new multicultural menu – the latest airline to tap star-powered Michelin  talent for their in-flight  dining program. In a bid to represent  the four corners of the earth, the Doha-based airline has recruited a team of  what they call culinary ambassadors for their country to create the Qatar  Airways Culinary World Menu.

Between the quartet of chefs, they share six Michelin stars and a worldwide  fan base. To represent the Middle East and the Arab world, Qatar tapped chef Ramzi  Choeiri, a well-known Lebanese food personality whose TV show attracts a  whopping 10 million viewers daily. He also holds the Guinness World Record for  building the largest falafel on the planet back in 2010.

And British chef Tom Aikens, the youngest in the UK to earn two stars, will  bring a European perspective, while Japanese restaurateur and mogul Nobu  Matsuhisa — whose empire spans 25 cities on 5 continents – will bring an Asian  sensibility to the in-flight dining experience. Matsuhisa’s cuisine also earned  him two stars.

The announcement comes as Qatar prepares to add the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner  to its fleet in the coming months, where the new menu will be served.
