Cathay Pacific Airways today announced its collaboration with celebrity chef Daniel Green, who is known to the culinary world for his light and clean dining philosophy. Cathay Pacific will be presenting a series of exclusive dishes and drinks, designed by Daniel, to First and Business Class passengers flying from Hong Kong to destinations in North America from August 2016.
A specialist in high-quality, low-carbohydrate cuisine, Daniel believes in “taking the food we love and lowering the fat”. The award-winning author of eleven cookery books, Daniel’s recipes have been widely featured in magazines in United States, United Kingdom, Europe and Asia and he also hosted a number of programmes for broadcasters such as the BBC, the Asian Food Channel, Fox and Food Network.
By teaming up with Daniel, Cathay Pacific will underline its brand promise of a “Life Well Travelled” by providing its passengers with light and clean inflight dining choices over the coming months. Cathay Pacific believes that travelling well is an important part of living well, and that the travel experience of its passengers will be enhanced by this array of exclusive clean dining options. Ingredients that are typically high in fat, such as cream and butter will be absent from dishes on the menu. By using different fresh ingredients, such as coconut milk to replace the use of cream, for example, Daniel has created clean recipes for passengers without sacrificing any taste.
Cathay Pacific Head of Catering Aaron Claxton said: “At Cathay Pacific, we believe that offering passengers a variety of high quality dining options is of great benefit to their overall travel experience. We are very pleased to work with Daniel, who is known for his low-carbohydrate cooking philosophy. We are excited to be able to present his creations onboard, so that passengers on long-haul flights can choose to enjoy a lighter yet fulfilling meal with a higher ratio of protein versus carbohydrates. We believe these dishes will help keep passengers refreshed throughout their flight.”
