Renowned German chef Karl Rudolf Herrmann, a chef with two Michelin stars, has designed a luxury children’s menu for the airline Lufthansa.
The company has hired the chef so it can offer a quality menu specially tailored to the tastes of little palates and which is completely different from the basic on-board children’s menus and offers a special touch to the gastronomic experience of boys and girls on-board airplanes.
The initiative seeks to teach children to enjoy a quality meal from an early age, something the chef has been working on for some time. The menu can be enjoyed by all long-distance passengers under the age of 12.
This Michelin-starred menu is offered free of charge and the dishes can be chosen and ordered 24 hours in advance. For more information on the booking of children’s meals, please go to the following link.
To produce this menu, the chef had the help of various children ranging from 4 to 9 years of age, who tasted the different dishes prepared by the chefs of LSG Sky Chefs catering service (the commercial name of LSG Lufthansa Service Holding AG). The children’s opinion and the tips the chef gave them was sufficient for them to choose the dishes they liked best, thus defining the haute cuisine menu that would eventually be served on the airline.
Some of the dishes chosen by the children were the “Little mouse with rice pudding” made of milk, creamy rice and raspberries, and “Dragon’s feet”, made of free-range bird sausages served with sauerkraut and mashed potato.
The following video shows the laborious work carried out by the children and the chefs to choose the dishes to go on this special children’s menu.
