From August this year, passengers flying First and Business Class from Hong Kong to North America onÂ Cathay Pacific will get to enjoy a series ofÂ healthy dishes from celebrity chef Daniel Green. A specialist in light, low-carbohydrate cuisine, Green is theÂ author of eleven cookery books, with theÂ latest one focused on the Paleo diet.
His special menu for the Cathay cabin features three salads and five main courses. Highlights include fettuccine, shiitake mushrooms, white wine, garlic, chargrilled fennel, and white truffle oil, alongsideÂ a Thai red vegetable curry, cooked withÂ light coconut milk andÂ served in a small roasted pumpkin (pictured above).Â The chefÂ has also createdÂ two power drinks, namely â€śBerries and spinach with maple syrup energizerâ€ť, containing iron and vitamins, and “Vitamin C booster” toÂ increase the body’s resistance to coughs and colds.
Green’sÂ signature “clean cuisine” avoids deep frying, while high-fat ingredients such as cream and butter are absent from the menu,Â which is designed withÂ aÂ higher ratio of protein versus carbohydrates so Cathay passengers can enjoy wholesome andÂ fulfilling mealsÂ on theirÂ long-haul flights.
