Top chefs to cook for Bangkok Airways

27 Jun 2011

Local carrier Bangkok Airways has enlisted the aid of gourmet chefs to cook for its Business Class passengers. This latest action by the airline is part of a campaign to improve its inflight services and emphasise the fact that it is a full-service carrier and not a low cost one.

The three chefs are Pitak Srichan from the Chiang Mai Four Seasons Resort, Alec Lomas from The Phuket Pavilions and the Greyhound Café’s Torsit Sarisdiwongsee. The trio will offer signature recipes from their particular establishments which will be prepared by Suvarnabhumi Airport catering firm, Bangkok Air Catering (BAC).

Four dishes have been chosen from each of the three participating restaurants eclectic menus. The meals will appear on the menus of Business fliers, with the dishes of each restaurant being served for two months.  

The Greyhound Café will start the cycle and specialities such as fusilli phad Thai created by chef Torsit will be served in July and August. The dishes are primarily Asian and will appeal to domestic passengers and gourmands from overseas who wish to tickle their taste buds.  

The epicurean delights will be offered on routes from Bangkok to Mumbai, Phnom Penh, the Maldives and Samui as well as Samui to Singapore flights.

Linus Knobel, the managing director of BAC, said that the chance of creating meals from recipes crafted by illustrious chefs had inspired the company’s own cooking team.
