From October 1, 2023, passengers in business class on long-haul flights Brussels Airlines will be able to benefit from angastronomic experience from the starred chef Michael Vrijmoed from the eponymous restaurant Vrijmoed in Ghent.

​The fact that Restaurant Vrijmoed is one of the best vegetable restaurants in the world is also reflected in the menus that the chef created for Brussels Airlines. Long-haul business class travelers will be able to choose a fish or meat dish or a vegetarian alternative for the starter and main course. ​The menu will change every three months to take advantage of seasonal products.

Passengers have the choice of two starters, one of which is my favorite: beetroot with Doyenné du Comice pear, mustard seeds and horseradish sauce. As a main course, we serve a variation of celery root (with ground chicory and crispy Jerusalem artichoke) as a vegetarian choice. It is also possible to choose between pheasant (with ground chicory, wild mushrooms, cranberries, pearl onions, Jerusalem artichoke, fine champagne sauce and Jerusalem artichoke puree) or green eel (with herb salad and château potatoes). ). To conclude, travelers can choose a cheese platter including East Flanders classics like Belgian Wittekop or Biloete, two cheeses from East Flanders’ Lotenhulle, or a hazelnut chocolate cake with vanilla-coffee sauce for the dessert“, announces the two-star Belgian chef.

As in previous years, the accompanying Belgian wines are carefully selected by the Master of Wine, Jan De Clercq, and the sommelier Sofie Vanrafelghem has chosen the local Belgian beers.
