For those travelling from Australia to Doha with Qatar Airways, there are soon to be some new delights on the menu, courtesy of Australian celebrity chef George Calombaris. Inspired by traditional Greek cuisine, these dishes will be available for first and business class travelers flying from Australia to Doha. There’s also good news for economy fliers, with Calombaris’ signature dishes rolling out across economy class early next year.

A tried and tested collaboration

This isn’t the first time that George Calombaris has worked with Qatar Airways. Last year he created a special menu for the launch of the A380 service from Melbourne to Doha. Due to the success of this exclusive menu, a more permanent offering was an obvious decision.

What’s on the menu?

There are certainly some mouth-watering meals to savor within the new selection of dishes. Of course no Greek menu would be complete without moussaka, but there are plenty more delights to try too. How about a tasty bastourma short-rib served with potato and onions? Or for something lighter, a Greek prawn salad, or a bowl of avgolemono, which for those not in the know, is an egg and lemon soup. On the other hand, perhaps you’ll go for the Fraser Island crab with tabbouleh and lemon marmalade. With this menu you really are spoiled for choice!

Keeping it fresh and exciting

An in-flight meal is often the highlight of any flight. It’s something to look forward to, and it breaks up a long journey, but your meals in the air can differ massively. Some will wow you while others are bland and disappointing. This is something that Calombaris truly understands and he has put all his efforts into creating dishes that will surprise and delight passengers.

Qatar Airways is committed to great dining

Chief Executive of the Qatar Group, Akbar Al Baker has recently stated that the airline is committed to offering the very finest food on their flights. They really do set a high standard and that’s something they are undoubtedly very proud of.

It’s highly likely that this year long collaboration with George Calombaris will be a massive success, and should draw more passengers to the already popular airline, famous for their high level of customer service. It would come as no surprise if the partnership continues beyond the year, or perhaps they’ll bring another famous chef on board for yet more inspired creations. That would certainly be interesting for anyone who regularly flies with Qatar Airways from Australia.
