    Back in April, I started to hear rumblings that the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group was going to partner with Cathay Pacific for a brand new menu in first class. Now, I finally have confirmation and the just-introduced dishes are fancier than an Iggy Azalea song. The pairing of these two iconic brands makes perfect sense: they’re both synonymous with Hong Kong (CX launched in the late ’40s and the first Mandarin Hotel opened in 1963). Now First Class travelers on routes between HKG and London can enjoy world-class food from Michelin starred chefs. (Note: they didn’t specify Heathrow, but all CX flights to Gatwick are operated by oneworld partners, so I think it’s safe to say we’re talking about LHR here) From September 1st to October 31st on the HKG-LHR routes, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong executive chef Uwe Opocensky is taking his Michelin stars to the sky and when the calendar turns to November, CX is rolling out a London-to-Hong Kong menu with Dean Yasharian, executive chef of Bar Boulud at the Mandarin Oriental in London’s Hyde Park. Both menus are classically French using top-notch products and the dishes look incredibly sophisticated. Check it all out below: (all photos via Cathay Pacific) Hong Kong to London (9/1/14-10/31/14) Course September October Starter Terrine Foie Gras, Truffle, Asparagus, Brioche Salmon Home Smoked, Caviar, Crab, Bagel Soup Tea Onion, Consommé, Gold, Flowers Tea Mushroom, Consomme, Gold, Flowers Main Course Sirloin Brandt Farms U.S., “Leather” Celeriac, Truffle, Bean, Almond, Shallot Chicken Organic, Rhug Estate, Bone, Carrot, Jus Dessert Lemon Tart Confit, Lemon, Vanilla, Tart Banana Split Strawberry, Chocolate, Vanilla, Cream, Cherry ***** London to Hong Kong (11/1/14-12/31/14): Course November December Starter crabe dorset crab, apple, walnut celeriac remoulade mousse de foie gras duck & chicken liver parfaitport jelly, toasted brioche Main Course boeuf braisé red wine braised beef short ribparsnip purée, crispy shallots sole grenobloise lemon sole rouladesharicot vert, ratte potatolemon & caper brown butter Dessert douillons aux fruits raspberry jam feuilleté with milk ice cream dome au chocolate chocloate mousse domecoffee coulant The post NEW First Class Menus for Cathay Pacific by Mandarin Oriental appeared first on Fly & Dine.
