SWISS brings VISTA’s famed Grisons cuisine aboard


For the latest cycle in its ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ inflight food and beverage programme, SWISS is offering culinary specialities from Canton Grisons to First and Business Class travellers on its outbound long-haul flights. The meals are the creation of top chef Sandro Steingruber of the VISTA gourmet restaurant in the Grisons village of Sagogn. SWISS Premium Economy Class guests will also enjoy a three-course meal that draws its inspiration from the new host canton’s cuisine.

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will be serving culinary delights from the top-notch Restaurant VISTA in the Grisons village of Sagogn to First and Business Class guests on its outbound long-haul flights from Switzerland for the next three months. The gourmet restaurant in the canton’s Surselva Valley has earned 15 Gault&Millau points along with a deserved reputation as a quality golfing eatery, and is a byword for elegant dining amid its Grisons alpine surrounds.

Classic dishes re-imagined

The latest ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ culinary cycle offers SWISS First travellers such delights as Bündnerfleisch (air-dried Grisons beef) tatar with pickled mushrooms and a Nusstorte (nut pie) parfait that is an intriguing variation on this cult Grisons dessert. SWISS Business guests can look forward to veal goulash with cream accompanied by spinach pizokel and, for dessert, chocolate cake with cherries in Röteli liqueur. The meal choices in both classes are rounded off with wines and speciality cheeses from Canton Grisons.

In Premium Economy Class, too, the new inflight menu draws its inspiration from SWISS’s latest host canton, with such delicacies awaiting the traveller as a mountain cheese from Ftan and a classic Grisons nut pie.
