Brussels Airlines and chef Tim Boury collaborate for 2021

In 2021, Brussels Airlines will continue its culinary collaboration with Belgian chef Tim Boury of Restaurant Boury in Roeselare.

Throughout 2021, Boury will again create gastronomic experiences for the Business customers of Brussels Airlines on its long-haul flights.

After a successful first collaboration in 2020, Boury will create four different menus throughout 2021 for Brussels Airlines’ Business guests on intercontinental flights.

“After a turbulent year, we are delighted to be able to work with Brussels Airlines once again,” sayid Tim Boury. “With the experience we accumulated this year, we have the unique opportunity to make the Business dining even better in 2021. This will undoubtedly enhance the experience of their guests. We are grateful to Brussels Airlines for its confidence in us!”

Tanguy Cartuyvels, head of customer experience and product at Brussels Airlines, said: “We operated a reduced number of flights this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so we unfortunately have not been able to share Tim’s kitchen with our wide audience of customers. The guests who did get to enjoy Tim’s culinary treats, raved about the quality and taste. That is why we decided to renew our collaboration. We are very happy that Tim decided to accept the challenge again and we look forward to top-notch Belgian cuisine onboard of our flights.”

For the first months of the year, the chef devised a menu consisting of an apéro bite made of Gougères Brokkeloud Roeselare cheese, a choice of brioche with smoked eel and chicory or braised veal tenderloin served with rocket and stuffed tomato as a starter, followed by three choices for the main course: Veal cheek with fondant potatoes, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts or cod fish with pumpkin, vadouvan spices and wild rice or a vegetarian lasagne with parsnip, celeriac, Jerusalem artichoke and porcini mushroom. Tim proposes a dessert with white chocolate, banana and blackcurrant.
