One of the elements that make flying less desirable is the food. Between it being indecipherably bland, with texture beyond inedible, in-flight meals are just the worst. However, major airline company, Lufthansa is trying to change the course of this unimpressive element of in-flight traveling.
In order to embrace the full theme of its US-based flights, Lufthansa is introducing a new series of in-flight dishes, fittingly entitled “Taste of America.” Inspired by American-esque dishes, Lufthansa is serving up meals reminiscent of some well-known and not-so-well-known favorites.
For a pretty impressive “amuse bouche” (yes, they exist in the air industry!) guests have the choice of either firecracker shrimp with gazpacho vinaigrette. Or for those looking for a bit of a Miami flare, their “Florida Conch” ceviche, complete with avocado and citrus will hit the spot. Meanwhile, in the west coast, travelers are getting a dose of fresh and healthy California fare, with the chicken peanut roll and peanut dressing dish.
The mains take on the same inspiration as the “amuse bouche” menu, incorporating comfort food-style dishes in each meal. Take for example, their southern style pork-chop with apple lacquer, roasted carrots and parsnips or their “coke-braised short ribs, served with garlic and tomato cannellini beans, ham, and pappardelle. And as homage to the ever so famous Bubba Gump Restaurant, the airline has also created a lemon & garlic seared shrimp dish, complete with cheesy grits, collard greens, corn, and Lima beans.
Finally, what would a good meal be without some dessert to finish things off?! As an ode to the famous Kentucky bourbon, Lufthansa has introduced a Kentucky bourbon pot de crème, topped with fresh berries, and chocolate sauce (Germany’s notable specialty).
With these tasty in-flight meals, travelers will surely not mind the super inconvenient layovers or red-eye flights!
