A culinary oasis high above the clouds. “The Woodward Geneva” whisks SWISS International Air Lines passengers away to a gourmet paradise they won’t soon forget. This unique gastronomic experience is at the heart of an avant-garde in-flight programme and demonstrates how high-class food can make the difference between a good and a memorable flying experience.
A Michelin star in the sky
The Woodward, a five-star luxury hotel in Geneva, has not only received the coveted Michelin star for its restaurant L’Atelier Robuchon, but has also secured a firm place in the culinary Olympus. Now, travellers in Business and First Class from Geneva and Zurich will be treated to exquisite dishes from this renowned restaurant. The inspiration? Of course, The Woodward Geneva.
Diversity and excellence: L’Atelier Robuchon and Le Jardinier
L’Atelier Robuchon amazes not only with its Michelin star, but also with an impressive 15 Gault Millau points. Proof of its outstanding quality and innovation in the culinary world. A view over the generous counter gives guests an exclusive view of the “culinary ballet” under the direction of Executive Chef Oliver Jean. An experience that is so much more than just food.
But the Woodward has more to offer. The restaurant Le Jardinier, with an equally impressive 15 Gault Millau points, opens its doors to a sustainable gastronomic experience. The farm-to-table concept is based on seasonal produce and emphasises the importance of freshness and regionality.
Oliver Jean: A chef with a mission
Oliver Jean, the 37-year-old executive chef, brings with him an impressive career and a clear culinary vision. Trained by legendary chef Robuchon, he has already run L’Atelier Robuchon in Taipei and opened restaurants in cities such as Miami, New York and Montreal. His philosophy? A kitchen that is in harmony with its natural surroundings. Through the SWISS Taste of Switzerland menu, he wants to bring travellers closer to the high quality of regional products and arouse emotions that are inextricably linked to the region.
A taste experience above the clouds
What awaits the passengers? For Business Class travellers, there are delicacies such as poached char with lemongrass sauce or sesame sushi rice. First-class guests, on the other hand, can look forward to dishes such as pike-perch marinated in miso or veal fillet with truffle sauce.
The heavenly taste of “The Woodward Geneva” takes the SWISS International Air Lines flight experience to a whole new level. It’s more than just a meal – it’s an invitation to discover the richness and diversity of Swiss cuisine. It is a journey that begins long before landing and shapes the memories of an unforgettable flight.
