Cathay Pacific partners with Tosca to launch Italian in-flight menu

It's available to First and Business class passengers till April 30.

Cathay Pacific has partnered with Tosca, the Michelin-starred Italian restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, to launch an exciting inflight menu promotion.

From 1 February to 30 April 2017, the promotional menu will be served to First and Business Class passengers onboard selected Cathay Pacific flights departing from Hong Kong to a variety of long-haul destinations, including Australia, Canada, Europe, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States. Culinary maestro Pino Lavarra of the award-winning Tosca has designed a delicious menu for Cathay Pacific with an inventive approach while staying true to the rustic Italian flavours at heart.

Dishes on the menu include octopus terrine, lemon and parsley salad, which will delight passengers with an interesting contrast of temperature and texture between the terrine and the seared octopus layered on top. The flavour profile is further highlighted by a hint of tanginess from the lemon mayo.

Beef short ribs, tomato Pizzaiola sauce and eggplant, meanwhile, is prepared using a traditional poaching technique under low heat for five hours. Succulent and tender, the short ribs are paired with palate-pleasing herbed tomato sauce and mashed potato.

Another dish that is sure to be a highlight is lobster, almonds, romaine and pink pepper dressing, which features imported tomatoes from Europe. The dressing, created specially by Chef Pino, adds considerable flavour to the salad, while the tomatoes provide a vibrant colour contrast and natural sweetness.
