Alison Price on Air brings a new star to the skies.

Wednesday 23rd November 2011

The London-based in-flight catering business Alison Price On Air has announced the launch of a series of new themed menus designed to accommodate the increasing variety of client nationalities and cuisine requests received for their elite catering service.

The first themed menu has been created in conjunction with Tamarind, the renowned Mayfair situated restaurant famed for its innovative food that aims to change diners' perception of Indian gastronomy. The restaurant has held a Michelin star since 2001 and continues to wow guests with its inventive dishes, beautiful presentation and excellent service.

Under the new agreement Tamarind will prepare the Indian food in their dedicated kitchens and will then use specifically designed packaging created by Alison Price on Air to keep the food fresh, and in position, to ensure minimal handling by the Flight Attendants. Dishes are also accompanied by specifically designed flash cards to ensure the attendants present the food in the correct manner. Deliveries to the executive aircraft will then be made by the Alison Price on Air team as with their standard menu.

"We chose to work with Tamarind as their aims and values are very similar to ours," commented Daniel Hulme, Director of Inflight Services at Alison Price on Air. "We have previously worked with them on a number of events and their attention to detail, focus on providing the best food possible and ensuring customer satisfaction mirror the qualities we strive for at Alison Price On Air, a partnership for the in-flight service was a natural progression."

This is the first time that Alison Price on Air has created a specific menu with an external kitchen for their in-flight service. "We experimented with a number of the Tamarind dishes to see what would and wouldn't work as we had to be sure we delivered the quality that our customers expect," says Hulme.

The new dishes, which include Padpi Chaat a spiced chickpea dish, and Pudhina Lamb chops tenderly spiced chops with a chilli yoghurt, will be available from the end of October to all private flights from the London area. Alison Price on Air is also researching bespoke Middle Eastern and Asian menus. "The client spectrum is so broad and we are determined to provide them with as much choice, variety and continued quality as we can," concludes Hulme.
