Aegean, consistent with its commitment to continuously improve its services and promote Greece’s tradition, natural beauty and culture all over the world, announces its collaboration with three distinguished Greek chefs. Together, they will take the stories of Greek gastronomy on a journey across the globe, through the new “Gastronomics” initiative.
For the first time ever, Aegean brings together three major representatives of modern Greek gastronomy, Lefteris Lazarou, Christoforos Peskias and Stelios Parliaros, who will help create the new Business Class menu, giving passengers the opportunity to try dishes that carry the aromas and flavors of Greece.
Embarking alongside them on this new gastronomic journey is Greece’s first ever Master of Wine, and Aegean’s wine consultant, Konstantinos Lazarakis, who will also help the chefs showcase the unique Greek gastronomic identity.
The new philosophy of the “Gastronomics” initiative is inspired by our country’s richness of flavors and aromas, but also by Greece’s nature and the memories that make up the authentic Greek gastronomy.
Greek flavors will travel to every international destination on Aegean’s network, revealing a piece of our country’s gourmet culture. Flavors from Crete, Naxos, the Peloponnese, and ingredients from all over Greece, are combined in the hands of the three top chefs, creating a menu of over 40 different dishes that highlight local products and wines from both small and large-scale producers, from every corner of the country, presenting the most authentic piece of Greece.
With this initiative, Aegean wants to offer, besides the very first smile, the first tasty “welcome” to our country, as well as the last gastronomic “goodbye” to visitors returning to their homeland.
Aegean’s collaboration with the three chefs will continue throughout 2018. The aim is to further expand the program, in order to create a Hellenic movement that will showcase Greek gastronomy all around the world, with the contribution of renowned Greek chefs.
At the same time, by essentially investing in a high-quality menu, Aegean strengthens and adds more value to the travel experience it offers passengers.
The philosophy of the “Gastronomics” initiative is part of the program to further enhance the services offered on Aegean flights and the company’s long-term commitment to promote Greek gastronomic tradition and strengthen local communities by promoting local products and producers through its network, as well as through actions and initiatives.
