With menus featuring dishes signed by renowned Chefs, Air France intends to surprise its customers and promote its role of ambassador of fine cuisine and art of French hospitality. As from 1st February and for a period of 8 months, Air France’s Business class customers will be able to enjoy one of the six dishes signed by Michel Roth for Air France. This dish, one of the four main dishes on the menu, will be renewed twice a month for the pleasure of frequent travellers.

Originally from Lorraine, Michel Roth worked at the best restaurants in France, finally stopping at the Ritz, where he earned his second Michelin star as head chef of the restaurant “L’Espadon”. In 1991, he won the “Bocuse d’Or” award and the title of “Meilleur Ouvrier de France”.

Michel Roth’s cuisine, a mixture of authenticity, simplicity and humanity, has its roots in local French produce, where the authentic taste of French cuisine is respected. This rigor and creativity are shared and passed on to the Servair Chefs who make the dishes created by Michel Roth for Air France passengers.

As part of its Transform 2015 plan, Air France places customer satisfaction at the heart of its strategy and is developing initiatives geared to providing exceptional service. The Company is therefore inviting its customers to discover a unique gourmet experience in its Business class cabin and offers dishes signed by renowned French chefs on the menus on board long-haul flights departing from Paris. After Joël Robuchon and Guy Martin, Michel Roth is taking over as the next ambassador of fine French cuisine.
