Taste regional food on board with Swiss International Air Lines

Wild garlic soup, corn-fed chicken with Swiss chard, blueberry tart with a delicious scoop of Appenzeller-beer ice cream. It sounds like a rustic dinner in the Alpine countryside, but it's the latest menu aboard Swiss International Air Lines.

The airline is tapping celebrated Swiss chefs to create exciting regional menus that celebrate local artisanal products and rotate every three months in the award-winning SWISS Taste of Switzerland program. 

From March through May, passengers in First and Business Class can get a taste of the spectacular Appenzell region, located between Lake Constance and the Säntis, where specialties include the famous Appenzeller cheese. The special menus were dreamed up by Silvia Manser of Restaurant Truube, an exceptionally gifted chef who's been awarded 15 GaultMillau points.

If you really want to enjoy the dishes, pair them with the impressive wine menu that features top producers–from Switzerland, of course. 

Bonus: Experience a taste at home with weekly recipes on Facebook from chef Nick Malgieri, like this Appenzeller Spinach Soup (get the recipe).
