Gourmet Aer Lingus short haul

Aer Lingus has launched a new on-board menu on short haul flights which includes a range collaborated with chef and restaurateur Clodagh McKenna.

The menu, nicknamed ‘Clodagh’s Kitchen’, has a range of fresh lunch and snack options including two special treats; a carrot cake muffin and a butter fruit scone, baked fresh daily.  For the discerning traveller there is an afternoon tea option, with a finger sandwich selection, consisting of smoked salmon and cream cheese, egg and cress and a ploughman’s.  Clodagh has developed two signature dishes for the Aer Lingus menu, a pastrami and pickle sandwich and a cheese board featuring Gubbeen Irish farmhouse cheese and Ditty's artisan oat cakes.
Aer Lingus Irish Breakfast, a customer favourite, remains a firm staple.  Specially sourced ingredients from around Ireland include bacon from Co Tipperary, sausages from Co Wexford and pudding by Horgans of Co Cork.  This, coupled with Dublin bakers McCambridge’s brown bread, makes for a real Irish breakfast says the carrier.  A new feature of the menu is a “foodie map” which highlights to customers exactly where produce has been sourced.
A children’s snack pack is available, it doubles as a fun colouring book to keep little ones entertained. Charges for all items are said to be very reasonable.  www.aerlingus.com
