La Première customers travelling on Air France long-haul flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle will be treated to a starter and a choice of five signature dishes created by Martin. This month, customers are being offered the choice of rack of lamb with sage jus, peas and tomato Provencal or a marinated duck fillet with vegetable jus, a brunoise of green tomatoes and a mini ratatouille. In May, turbot with ras el hanout and sweet potato pie will be on the menu, as well as chicken with shrimps in sauce.

Guy Martin is a self-taught chef from the Savoie region of France. He set up the popular Parisian restaurant, Le Sensing, as well as the cookery school, L’Atelier Guy Martin. He has also written many cookbooks including ‘La route des étoiles’.

Since December 2011, Air France has been working with the Servair Culinary Studio, chaired by Joël Robuchon, to affirm its role as ambassador of fine French dining in the sky. Every two months, a new star French chef adds their culinary creations to the La Première menu with previous chefs including Anne-Sophie Pic, Régis Marcon, Guy Martin, Joël Robuchon and Michel Roth.
