Aristocratic inflight menu by Award-winning Chefs
EVA is proud to have award-winning chef Huang Ching-biao to create a special menu for selected EVA routes.
The special menu created by Chef Huang champions slow cooking and traditional techniques. The inflight dining experience begins with a pork shoulder slice wrapped with cucumber and Thai-style shrimp followed by golden chicken soup with seafood in a rich, golden broth. The main course is braised abalone in oyster sauce served with stir-fried rice with caramel olive while dessert is an elegant concoction of mashed taro and sweet potato in water chestnut sauce.
Taiwanese Masterchef Huang Ching-biao is a veteran in Asian cuisine and having personally served presidents, high-ranking officials and the elite, Royal Laurel Class passengers on long-haul flights are guaranteed to have a satisfying meal in the air.
That’s not all to it, EVA even enlisted acclaimed Italian pastry chef Andrea Bonaffini of the popular Taipei patisserie Yellow Lemon to create four seasonal desserts for its premium passengers.
On the spring menu, EVA Air is offering an inventive delight named “Bianca,” followed in summer by “Coco Mango” and in autumn, by “Nocciola.” These delicious treats will be introduced to Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Classes passengers flying from Taipei to Brisbane, Paris and Vienna as menus change seasonally.
