SWISS serves up St. Gallen gourmet specialities

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) is taking its Business and First passengers on a gourmet trip to Canton St. Gallen in the latest phase of its ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ inflight culinary programme.

The new meals have been created by Bernadette Lisibach, starred chef at the reputed Neue Blumenau restaurant in the village of Lömmenschwil. SWISS’s Premium Economy Class passengers will also enjoy a three-course inflight meal that has been inspired by Canton St. Gallen specialities.

Chef Lisibach is renowned for her down-to-earth creations using local regional ingredients. Her skills and creativity have earned her the GaultMillau 2015 Chef of the Year award, her first Michelin star (in 2019) and 17 GaultMillau points.

For SWISS Taste of Switzerland she has put an even firmer focus on specialities from Canton St. Gallen, to help further acquaint SWISS’s premium travellers on long-haul services from Zurich with Switzerland’s vast culinary variety.

“The gourmet creations of Bernadette Lisibach are a byword for a sound and simple approach, sheer enjoyment and quality of the highest order,” says Julia Hillenbrand, SWISS’s Head of Brand Experience. “It’s a combination that is an excellent fit with our company. And I’m delighted that our inflight guests can now sample her skills and gain a taste of the culinary offerings of Canton St. Gallen.”

“My creations have never been served at such altitudes before,” adds Lisibach. “But I’m pleased and privileged to have this unique opportunity to work together with SWISS to put a little piece of Switzerland on the plates of so many people from all over the globe.”

SWISS guests travelling in Premium Economy Class on flights from Switzerland will also be offered the additional inflight food option of a three-course meal featuring specialities from the Lake Constance region.
