The state flag carrier has concocted an exciting menu to its customers in the next few months as it has tapped the service of the famous TV personality, Poh Ling Yeow, in its latest gastronomic offering on board.
Nyonya Chicken Curry, the delectable signature dish of the MasterChef, will be offered to customers on flights from Australia bound for Kuala Lumpur. The signature dish will be served with a roti-style croissant to both economy and business class passengers, starting December 1 this year until February 28, 2015.
Ms. Poh said that Nyonya Chicken Curry has been favored by many including non-Malaysians for its distinctive Malaysian flavor and added that Australians would certainly love it. Australians have learned to love Malaysian cuisine for its cosmopolitan yet distinctive taste, which is a fusion of Chinese, Indian, and Malaysian flavors.
This latest offering is the third such endeavor by Malaysia Airlines under the watch of its executive chef, Zahiddin Dris. Chef Dris is in charge of the airline's unique program to create a country-specific signature dish from each country that it operates.
Former famous celebrities enlisted by Chef Dris were Amandine Chaignot, Chef de Cuisine from the Raphael Hotel in Paris, for its Paris-Kuala Lumpur flights and multi-awarded Irish-born Chef Richard Corrigan for its London-Kuala Lumpur flights. Chef Richard Corrigan has also earned a Michelin star in his belt.
The airline's regional senior vice president, Mr PK Lee, said that their Malaysian heritage places great emphasis on their cuisine to develop world-class dishes aboard its flights.
