The French chef who holds the world record for Michelin stars (25 in total) renewed his partnership with the airline this fall, meaning passengers in premium classes can savor his cuisine during October and November.

This month, Air France first and business class clients departing from Paris-Charles de Gaulle can choose lobster in a spicy coralline sauce with corn penne or stuffed dark meat poultry served with slow-cooked green cabbage, diced bacon and foie gras.

For November, Joël Robuchon created a dish of sautéed scallops in coral sauce, served with a chive and ginger fregola risotto, as well as a shredded duck confit with truffle and potatoes au gratin.

The starter over the two month-period is described as “a symphony” of salmon tartare with shiso sprouts and caviar.

Air France has collaborated with leading chefs for years to bring gourmet dishes to its in-flight offering. Guy Martin and Michel Roth are also among the culinary greats who have created these special menus, which are served exclusively to first and business class passengers.
