Emirates is refreshing its summer menus to incorporate seasonal fruits. In the next two months, Emirates will launch a range of seasonal menu items on select routes. The special offering will incorporate flavours from the summer harvest – from strawberries and cream paired in Eton Mess for United Kingdom routes to Alphonso mangos in kheer and layered cakes for flights to India.
In July, passengers travelling to India in July will enjoy the seasonal flavours of the Alphonso mango as the airline makes the tropical fruit the star of its desserts in all classes. First and Business Class customers will be treated to an Alphonso Mango layer cake while Economy Class customers will enjoy an Alfonso mango and sago kheer. The special month-long menu will see almost 6 tonnes of Alphonso Mangos and mango puree sourced from India.
First and Business Class customers travelling to the UK and Ireland can sample treats featuring seasonal strawberries including the classic British summer dessert Eton Mess.
Emirates’ First and Business Class passengers travelling to and from Italy in August can look forward to an appetizer of the season’s heirloom tomatoes paired with burrata, an Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream.
With over 110 million meals served a year, Emirates chefs constantly create destination-inspired menus using fresh, seasonal ingredients that cater to a global palette.
Emirates round-the-clock kitchen provides meals for 520 flights a day, serving 209 meals a minute – a feat accomplished by Emirates’ 1,800 chefs and their arsenal of 12,450 recipes.
