SWISS unveils new culinary delights

Part of the Lufthansa Group, Swiss International Air Lines, will be introducing “SWISS Traditions” on 22 February for passengers on European services.  A new culinary concept, the fare is centred on a series of classic Swiss dishes, which will be supplemented by further delights associated with particular Swiss traditions and cultural events.

In future, Business Class travellers on the airline’s European services will be offered classic and popular Swiss dishes that are prepared from original recipes using quality regional ingredients, such as a typical mushroom risotto of Canton Ticino or a Bündnerplatte featuring Canton Grisons’ famous air-dried beef.

In addition to these classic Swiss dishes, SWISS guests will be treated to a range of further in-flight victuals that have their origins in well-known Swiss national and cultural events.  Every eight weeks, the carrier will feature a new event of this kind on selected flights.  The cycle will begin with February’s focus on Basel’s loud and colourful “Fasnacht” carnival, for which in-flight guests will be offered such local specialities as Basler Mehlsuppe (flour soup), Käsekuchen (cheese tart) and Basler Läckerli mousse. www.swiss.com
