Brussels Airlines offers gastronomic experience at 35,000 feet in the air

Brussels Airlines is starting a culinary collaboration with Belgian chef Tim Boury of Restaurant Boury (two Michelin stars) in Roeselare. Throughout 2020, Tim – Chef of the Year 2017 – will create a gastronomic experience for the Business Class customers of Brussels Airlines on its long-haul flights.

Brussels Airlines – recently awarded ‘Best Trans-Atlantic Airline‘ by the readers of Global Traveler – is continuing to invest in the travel experience of its customers. Within their concept of a Boutique Hotel in the air, the Belgian airline is offering a real restaurant experience 35,000 feet in the air.

From 1 January, Belgian star chef Tim Boury will put together a new menu for Business Class customers on Brussels Airlines’ intercontinental flights for each trimester in 2020.

From January to March, Business Class customers travelling from Brussels to Africa or North America can expect an Old Farmdal Cream from Roeselare as an aperitif, followed by a brioche with smoked eel and chicory or softly cooked veal loin as entree. As a main course, Tim offers a choice of veal cheek with fondant potato, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts or anglerfish with pumpkin, vadouvan and wild rice or risotto with wild mushrooms. To close, guests have the choice between Van Tricht’s selection of cheeses and Boury’s dessert of white chocolate, banana and cassis.

Tim Boury, together with his wife Inge, founded restaurant Boury in Roeselare in 2010. The successful duo met in the kitchen of Comme chez Soi (former ***). Later Tim became the left hand and sous-chef of Sergio Herman in Oud Sluis*** and Inge worked together with chef Peter Goossens in Hof van Cleve***. One year after the opening, Boury restaurant was already awarded a first Michelin star. Tim was elected by Gault & Millau as ‘Chef of the Year 2017‘ and the team received a second Michelin star.

In addition to his own dishes, Tim is also taking his own Flavas beer and LAVAS Gin to greater heights. Flavas beer is the first beer of Boury Bottled and was created based on the same flavours and ingredients from Tim’s kitchen. Brusels Airlines will continue to offer other Belgian products as usual, such as Belgian beers and wines and the Neuhaus chocolate, in order to promote the best of Belgium.
