TORONTO — Sunwing has partnered with celebrity chef Lynn Crawford to launch the new Sunwing Café on-board menu. The new buy-on-board selections — available beginning Oct. 19 — include a range of high-quality light meals and snacks and feature dishes conceived by the Food Network chef.
“With Sunwing, your vacation begins the moment you step on board one of our planes,” says Stephen Hunter, CEO and president of the Sunwing Travel Group. “We are justly proud of our award-winning Champagne Service and feel the creation of the Sunwing Café will only add to our already popular on-board experience. With Chef Lynn Crawford, we have conceived an in-flight menu that reflects the diverse tastes and appetites of our passengers.”
Studies show tastebuds are 30 per cent less effective at 30,000 feet, so each Sunwing Café menu item is created to pack a flavour punch. Dishes created by Crawford include a honey-Dijon peameal bacon on a kaiser, topped with onion marmalade and grain-mustard aioli ($8.99); slow-cooked beef short ribs served with herb-roasted fingerling potatoes, heirloom carrots, double-smoked bacon, pearl onions and Bourguignon sauce ($13.99); and baked pasta with roasted tomatoes, mozzarella and jalapeño-jack cheese, lemon ricotta and tomato-basil sauce ($9.99).
“I really want to showcase fresh, local, high-quality ingredients served in the very best five-star experience — chef-inspired comfort food that you want to enjoy,” says Crawford.
