Raymond Blanc and Eurostar Business Premier launch new summer menus
Building on its successful two year partnership with world renowned chef Raymond Blanc, Eurostar has today launched exciting new summer menus for Business Premier passengers. As well as tempting new options for both lunch and dinner, Raymond has also launched a new breakfast and wine offering.
Responding to customer feedback, Raymond Blanc has worked closely with Eurostar’s kitchens in Kent, Burgundy and Brussels to create a new breakfast, which offers a choice between a traditional English cooked breakfast and lighter options.
Passengers travelling from UK stations can enjoy a new British inspired breakfast, which features traditional Yorkshire bacon and Surrey sausages complete with Bubble and Squeak. UK bound passengers will be treated to a continental version of a cooked breakfast. For those that prefer a lighter start to the day other choices include organic low fat yoghurt, Eurostar’s very own summer bircher muesli and freshly prepared fruit bowls.
Along with the launch of the new breakfast menus, Raymond has worked with Eurostar to create a new wine list. Each wine has been carefully selected to reflect the season and will rotate quarterly to ensure the highest quality. New for the summer menus are lighter red wines such as ‘Brouilly’ and ‘Coteaux Bourguignons’.
Eurostar’s Business Premier lunch, afternoon tea and dinner menus have also been refreshed for summer to offer a range of seasonal flavours. The new dishes focus on locally sourced seasonal fruits and vegetables and feature several of Raymond’s own recipes including; red pepper mousse, beetroot risotto and the famous chocolate delice.
Raymond Blanc, Eurostar’s Business Premier Culinary Director commented; “Choice is at the heart of our offering for passengers and working with Eurostar’s suppliers we’re committed to responding to our guests’ needs. We believe the menus we have designed offer each passenger a fresh and seasonal choice of locally sourced food, whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. These latest improvements are part of our long term vision for onboard catering and Eurostar’s Business Premier customers can expect many more enhancements in the near future.”
Both Eurostar and Raymond Blanc are passionate about locally sourced and sustainably produced ingredients. In 2013, Eurostar became the first transport provider to receive an Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) accreditation as a One-Star Sustainability Champion for its commitment to responsibly sourcing local and sustainably produced ingredients. For 2104, Eurostar is working to achieve a Two-Star Sustainability Champion rating.
