SIA's Book the Cook hits AKL

One year in the making, Singapore Airlines’ Book the Cook service is winging its way to Auckland, with LSG Sky Chefs curating and producing the vision.
Book the Cook gives First Class, Business Class and Premium Economy guests leaving Auckland the opportunity to book a main course from a curated fine dining menu, up to 48 hours before flying with the airline.
Already available at 17 other ports for First Class, 23 ports in Business Class and 19 ports for Premium Economy, Auckland’s menu is available for departures starting 30 October – the same date that the airline’s A380 comes back into rotation.

Simon Turcotte, general manager, Singapore Airlines NZ says the menu aims to keep things local, sustainable and with a Kiwi touch.
‘We really try to be sustainable and to choose fresh products we can use year round,’ he says.
‘Maybe after a year we’ll have a look at what the most popular dishes are and do a refresh, we want to be adaptable and cater to needs and demands.’
For those with clients interested in this value add, Kiwi highlights on the menu are the New Zealand Lobster Thermidor, Southern King Salmon and New Zealand Lamb Loin.
