Air Transat's Gourmet menu by Daniel Vezina

Air Transat's Gourmet menu by Chef Daniel Vézina winter 2019-2020 is available for pre-order by passengers flying in Economy Class as of 1NOV.

"Every season, travellers tell us how much they enjoy the quality and refinement of the meals in the Gourmet menu by Chef Daniel Vézina," says Jean-François Lemay, President-General Manager of Air Transat.

The Gourmet menu is offered for free in Club Class, where the main dishes are accompanied by the chef's own strawberry shortcake or chocolate fondant. In Economy Class, the meals must be pre-ordered at least 72 before departure.

The Gourmet menu features two options for breakfast and six for lunch/dinner. The breakfast options are $18, while the lunch/dinner dishes are $25.

"Nothing pleases me more than to showcase Quebec products in my creations," says Chef Daniel Vézina.

"I've been featuring them at my restaurant Laurie Raphaël for 28 years, and I do the same with the recipes I create for my Gourmet menu served on board. This winter, passengers will get to taste homegrown products like the blueberries and maple syrup that come with the pancakes, as well as the delicious chicken from the Ferme des Voltigeurs in Drummondville."
