TORONTO — The Sunwing Café is back with not one, but two famous Canadian culinary experiences en route to the sunny south.
New for this edition is Schwartz’s Deli’s World Famous Original Smoked Meat, served on a pretzel roll with grainy mustard and mayonnaise spread, topped with a sliced pickle. A household name across Canada, Schwartz’s Deli has been serving up its famous smoked meat for over 90 years. This marks the first time the landmark restaurant has partnered with an airline.
Owner of Schwartz’s Deli, Paul Nakis, said: “We’re excited to embark on this new partnership which will see our signature product served at 30,000 ft. to travellers from coast to coast for the very first time.”
In addition, Sunwing is welcoming back Food network Canada Celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford for the fourth consecutive year. New for the 2019/2020 season is Crawford’s Croque-monsieur, made from oven-backed béchamel and gruyere cheese-crusted brioche slices filled with smoked ham, provolone, swiss cheese, mustard, mayonnaise and caramelized onions. Her Grilled Tex Mex Chicken Wrap, a perennial favourite among Sunwing passengers, is also back on the menu.
Crawford said that this year’s menu promises to be both tasty and delicious: “I’m delighted to be working with Sunwing for another year, helping Canadians get their vacations off to the right start with award-wining inflight service on board Sunwing Airlines. The recipes I’ve created for the Sunwing Café this season offer passengers nutritious and flavoursome dishes that showcase quality, fresh ingredients.”
Sunwing Airlines’ President Mark Williams added: “We believe in being with our customers every step of the way and feel that their vacations with us should begin the moment they step on board. We are justly proud of our award-winning inflight service and our Sunwing Café menu plays a big part in it. By renewing our longstanding partnership with Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford and introducing Schwartz’s World Famous Original Smoked Meat, we are maintaining our promise to our customers to vacation better.”
In addition to the new offerings from Schwartz’s Deli and Celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford, customers can look forward to several other firsts in this new edition of the menu including a flavoursome Quinoa Salad and a hearty Sausage Roll. There are also several new snack options available, such as Joseph’s Nutless Clusters and Rolo SNAX. Customers can pre-order their meal up to 48 hours prior to departure to ensure their preferred choice is available.
