Vietnam Airlines teams with celebrity chef Luke Nguyen for Business Class offerings
SYDNEY - Bestselling author and TV host Luke Nguyen has been appointed Global Cuisine Ambassador for Vietnam Airlines in a bid to further promote Vietnamese culture and cuisine to the world.
The three-year contract will see eight of Luke’s culinary creations introduced to Business Class menus of VN international flights network-wide. He will also provide input into the current offering of 50 dishes served globally.
“Menu planning sky high is very complex,” says Luke. “We lose about 15 to 20 per cent of our taste at 50,000ft, and finding a food offering that has authentic Vietnamese flavours to suit passengers flying through different continents isn’t easy. I look forward to the challenge.”
Welcoming Luke on board, Le Hong Ha, Executive Vice President of Vietnam Airlines, said that, as the national carrier, VN always aimed to introduce its passengers to a truly Vietnamese experience. www.vietnamairlines.com (ATI).
