Qatar refreshes Premium menu

By Rachel Debling

Premium guests of Qatar Airways have a new dining experience to look forward to. Starting with its European routes, the airline will be introducing new tableware, cutlery, chinaware and menus in its premium cabins.

According to a May 28 release from the airline, Qatar will include new signature dishes on their inflight menus based on route destinations (for example, porcini and truffle risotto in Italian sectors). Popular and traditionally prepared Middle Eastern main dishes will also be an option across most routes; menu items may include kabsa, biryani and flame-grilled meats. Business Class guests will also enjoy exclusive new warm desserts, as well as afternoon tea on select routes.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said in the press release: “Qatar Airways is thrilled to introduce a whole new onboard dining experience that will push the boundaries of Premium travel for our esteemed passengers. Every new concept was designed and produced with the highest attention to detail and quality, to meet the exacting standards of our passengers.

“Qatar Airways is collaborating closely with local farms and suppliers to produce products for our specific needs, promoting a ‘farm-to-table’ approach. Our in-flight dining menus are designed to align with the four seasons, better incorporating the use of locally-grown produce and tapping into authentic foods of local provenance delivering the very highest international standards.”

Qatar will also feature lighter options on their menu to meet the dietary needs and culinary interests of their passengers: fresh salads, woodland berries and breakfast oatmeal are among the new options. Select routes will also have healthy drink options such as cold-pressed juices available to passengers.

The airline will still be offering the luxury fare that it is known for, including an enhanced caviar service for First Class passengers, accompanied by a Balik-style salmon on a bespoke crystal plate.
