Air Canada Announces New Chef with Event at the Royal Conservatory of Music

Air Canada recently held an event at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto to announce their new head chef.

Wanting to stick with Canadian representatives, as seen by the earlier announcement that Toronto designer Christopher Bates will design the new Air Canada uniforms, the national flight company chose Vancouver Chef David Hawksworth of Hawksworth Restaurant to create their new taste..

Air Canada Announces New Chef
Poached chilled prawns, tomato purée, celeriac horseradish, grilled zucchini.

 

Chef Hawksworth created a menu for Air Canada’s business class flyers that can be enjoyed on any Air Canada flight around the world as well as in Maple Leaf Lounges. The menu was created with local Canadian ingredients highlighting our Country’s range of produce and meats and will change seasonally to satisfy our ever changing palettes.

The partnership will officially begin on October 1st but we thought we would bring you a little sneak peak at some of the food items that will be available.
