SWISS Saveurs’ latest menu zooms in on wintertime favorites

Tis the season for mulled wine and cheese fondue!

SWISS Saveurs’ winter menu (December-February 2020) is full of wintertime favorites such as mulled wine, cheese fondue, winter fruit salad and more.

Let’s face it, fondue is a Swiss winter tradition and after last year’s success (Read all about that, here!), the airline decided to bring back this iconic dish. As a part of the SWISS Saveurs program, Retail inMotion co-developed a truly unique and delicious fondue meal, especially designed for consumption on board. The Cheese Fondue meal is based on a traditional recipe (50% Vacherin Fribourgeois and 50% Gruyère) and is served with bread from a local supplier. Plus, it goes perfectly well with a glass of “Aigle Les Murailles”, a famous Swiss wine that’s now also available onboard.

The winter culinary experience doesn’t stop here: the latest SWISS Saveurs menu also features a delicious range of Globus Delicatessa signature sandwiches — a new one each month: Pastrami Délice Sandwich in December, Whole-wheat Chicken Baguette in January and Geneva Ham Sandwich in February—, as well as the legendary Gruyère planchette containing dried beef, salami and raw ham. Speaking of holiday specials, passengers also have the chance to try out the freshly baked focaccia bread with goat cheese from Moléson, dried cranberries and spinach leaves, and for dessert, a delicious winter fruit salad with mango, kiwi and orange.

The new chocolate assortment from Maison Manuel will surely appeal to passengers with a sweet tooth; each serving contains four handcrafted chocolates: hazelnut truffle, milk chocolate square, dark almond chocolate and dark chocolate truffle. If you’re craving cookies, SWISS offers a range of cookies — chocolate and salted caramel — by Geneva locals Léa and Marcel that are certified gluten-free, organic and vegan. There’s also the freshly baked shortcrust tartlet with diced apple and cinnamon and the Raspberry Macaroon.

Tea lovers will definitely appreciate the latest addition from Sirocco, namely the Lemon & Ginger Infusion. This classic Swiss brand only uses the best organic ingredients. Speaking of Swiss products, passengers can now order tomato juice from l’Union Maraîchère de Genève’s brand Côté Jardin. To avoid food waste, UMG, an agricultural cooperative of 32 fruit and vegetable producers, offers second choice products (odd sizes and shapes) in its stores and makes this delicious tomato juice, from tomatoes produced exclusively in Geneva and ripened to perfection, without preservatives or coloring.

La Nébuleuse Double Oat, a mellow double IPA beer with a light bitterness and an exotic hint can also be found onboard SWISS flights from/to Geneva, and goes wonderfully with Flûtes or Baked Pretzel Chips.

As always, SWISS is aiming to offer passengers the best and most recognized Swiss products and put a spotlight on startups and artisans, such as Freely Handustry, Manuel chocolates, La Nebuleuse, Côté Jardin, and more.

Last but not least, for those who want to try out products from Romandy, the French-speaking part of Switzerland, A Taste of Suisse Romande is a fitting testament to the airline’s desire to feature the riches and the savoir-faire of that region. Join them on a culinary journey around la Romandie!
