MONTREAL — Air Transat’s Gourmet menu by Chef Daniel Vézina is back for the winter 2019-202 season and is now available for pre-order.
As of Nov. 1, Economy Class passengers can pre-order a wide range of delicious dishes, including two breakfast options and one main dish.
As always, the Gourmet menu will feature two options for breakfast and six for lunch/dinner.
“Every season travellers tell us how much they enjoy the quality and refinement of the meals in the Gourmet menu by Chef Daniel Vézina,” said Jean-François Lemay, President-General Manager of Air Transat. “As the World’s Best Leisure Airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards, Air Transat strives daily to offer passengers an experience that lives up to this title. The Gourmet menu is one of the fabulous perks of our Club Class, and it’s available for purchase in Economy Class by anyone looking to kick off their vacation in style or end it on a high note.”
According to Vézina, nothing pleases him more than to showcase Quebec products in his culinary creations.
“I’ve been featuring them at my restaurant Laurie Raphaël for 28 years, and I do the same with the recipes I create for my Gourmet menu onboard,” he said. “This winter, passengers will get to taste homegrown products like the blueberries and maple syrup that come with the pancakes, as well as the delicious chicken from the Ferme del Voltigeurs in Drummondville.”
