Designing and preparing unique menus.

Gate Gourmet's global team of chefs work with our airline customers to design and prepare delicious and unique menus which delight the passenger. They also help ensure culinary consistency and top food quality across our global operation.

Gate Gourmet is proud to offer customers access to one of the most experienced and innovative teams of menu design and operational chefs in the industry. Our executive chefs have worked at some of the world’s finest restaurants and have a flair for true hospitality - indeed, at Gate Gourmet alone we have over 20 chefs with Michelin stars.

We have a Culinary Center of Excellence in place focused on providing our airline customers with their own “culinary signature” and ensuring consistency on a global scale in all Gate Gourmet kitchens. This philosophy is founded on our culture of culinary excellence and continuous improvement.

Our chefs hail from different regions and countries and are experts in their respective native cuisine. With Gate Gourmet, you can count on a partner with expertise in ethnic and cultural cuisines as well as dietary requirements and religious customs.

Our world-class team of chefs stay abreast of the latest developments in the culinary world. They track worldwide restaurant trends and regional preferences to design contemporary menus that can be replicated in large quantities. They also scout for the latest food trends and evaluate new products, equipment and production techniques.

To deliver on our customers’ vision, Gate Gourmet chefs work collaboratively with the airlines. We set ourselves apart by listening carefully to their needs, presenting multiple options and working together to customize programs to their exact specifications and worldwide locations – whatever and wherever these may be.
