El Al launches menu with chef Assaf Granit

El Al Israeli Airlines has launched a new inflight menu by Michelin-starred chef Assaf Granit.

The menu, which was gradually introduced throughout September, features Khoresh-e Ghormeh Sabzi stew, Moroccan Chraime fish and a chocolate mousse with za’atar crumble.

Available in all cabin classes, the culinary offering will showcase Israeli ingredients.

Starters include creamed mushrooms and a kale dish featuring radishes, cucumbers, seasonal fruit, fried shallots and a ginger vinaigrette.

Main courses will offer Musakhan roasted chicken, beef chuck and Sha’ariya rice.

For dessert, there is Babsbousa semolina cake with apricot jam. 

Economy class passengers can opt for new snack sandwiches, while Premium and Business travellers will be served dishes featuring a “fusion of classic Israeli cuisine with a modern twist”. Prestige class passengers can also enjoy alcoholic beverages.

Chef Assaf Granit said: “Israeli cuisine is all about connecting different cultures and has long been my culinary inspiration. There is a spark of magic when we connect different countries and cultures, and even between our roots to our destination.”

Dina Ben Tal Ganancia, CEO of El Al, added: “I’m excited to announce the launch of our new inflight menu, created by Michelin star chef Assaf Granit. Our new menu will showcase the diversity of Israeli cuisine, and I’m sure it will delight both locals and guests on their journey with us.”
