Sunwing Brings Celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford On Board

Sure, big name chefs have worked with airlines to help create sky-high menus before, but those airlines tend to be large, global carriers and those specialty dishes were meant for those sitting at the front of the plane, behind the curtains that shut out the majority of those on board. Cathay Pacific’s partnership with Chef Daniel Green comes to mind.

Lynn-CrawfordThat was not the approach Canada’s leisure airline Sunwing was after when it decided to bring dynamic celebrity chef, Lynn Crawford, into its fold.

Starting October 19th, Sunwing guests will get to sink their teeth into a brand new, buy-on-board menu inspired by the Canadian culinary guru and star of Food Network’s Restaurant Makeover and Iron Chef America. The new Sunwing Café menu will be available to everyone.

“Chef-inspired comfort food that you want to enjoy.”

“Chef inspired comfort food that you want to enjoy.” That’s how the former Executive Chef at the Four Seasons in Toronto describes her new offering. One look at the tantalizing menu and it makes sense.

Personally crafted and tested, Crawford aims to showcase fresh, local, high-quality ingredients to awaken taste buds usually stymied at 30,000 feet.

For breakfast, honey Dijon peameal bacon on a Kaiser bun, topped with an onion marmalade and a grainy mustard aioli. Lunch and dinner options include slow-cooked beef short ribs alongside herb roasted fingerling potatoes, heirloom carrots, double smoked bacon, pearl onions and Bourguignon sauce, as well as a baked pasta dish, with roasted tomatoes, mozzarella and jalapeno jack cheese, lemon ricotta and a tomato basil sauce.

There’s also a Margherita pizza, mac n’ cheese, an assortment of tapas and even a snack box for kids.

The idea for the partnership took off as a response to customer feedback and the desire for a wider variety of fresh and affordable meal options. Clearly, Sunwing listened.

Sunwing is one of Canada’s premier charter airlines and vacation providers, offering year-round service to Florida, The Caribbean, Mexico and Central America. Their inflight service has been popular with vacationers for years, and now with Sunwing Café, they aim to do more of the same.
