Brussels Airlines is reinventing its airline food with the help of some local talent. Three-star Michelin chef Geert van Hecke, of De Karmeliet restaurant in Bruges, has created a menu for the airline’s long-haul Business Class passengers departing from Brussels Airport. Van Hecke is the first of the airline’s new Belgian Star Chefs menu, which will be refreshed every four to five months with another cooking star. The new menu, available until March 2014, features Belgian cuisine using regional produce from West Flanders. Menu items include smoked eel from Damme, served with tarragon-yogurt sauce and fennel puree. For the main course passengers can indulge in North Sea shrimp prepared with curry of sweet potatoe and steamed snow peas. The artfully selected cheese platter includes choice from the province of West Flanders: Damme and Apero Cheese from Bruges. And don’t forget the beverages—a selection of Belgian beer and wine, including choice of Brugge Tripel beer, is also available onboard.
