On Friday (February 2, 2024), Air France announced the introduction of a new Business Class gourmet meal box for guests traveling on short-haul flights.  The new catering offer was developed in collaboration with Servair Corporate Chef, François Adamski, Bocuse d’Or and Meilleur Ouvrier de France.  Air France is offering a menu that changes throughout the day, with customers on flights departing before 10:00 am receiving a breakfast, consisting of sandwiches with adapted fillings such as smoked salmon and cream cheese with dill on white bread, accompanied by a breakfast pastry.


On flights departing after 10:00 am, customers can enjoy new, unique and gourmet ‘signature’ sandwiches prepared by the chef, such as smoked paprika chicken and tarragon vegetables on Granary bread, along with typical French sweets and desserts like a calisson, a cannelé, or a tropézienne.  The new Business Class gourmet boxes will be renewed each month, and are presented in an elegant meal box.  Chef François Adamski has created tasty sandwiches that are easy to eat on short flights, and has carefully selected local and seasonal produce, meat, poultry and dairy products of French origin, PDO cheeses and fish from sustainable fisheries.

The new Business Class short-haul meals are accompanied by a curated wine and champagne list, now served in glass, along with a range of hot and cold drinks.  As part of Air France’s commitment to responsible catering, the meal box and after-service food waste are sorted onboard.  Additionally, for the first time at Air France, and with the support of Servair, the boxes are subject to methanization for reprocessing purposes.  Methanization is the natural biological process in which organic matter is broken down in order to be recycled into energy.


Chef François Adamski’s exceptional dishes are also available in Air France’s lounge in Terminal 2F at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and in Business Class on the carrier’s medium-haul flights.


François Adamski trained in the kitchens at the Hôtel de Matignon, the Plaza Athénée, the Ritz, the Maison Prunier and the Hôtel Intercontinental.  In 2001, he won the Bocuse d’Or, and in 2007 became Meilleur Ouvrier de France.  Following six years of service at the Abbaye Saint-Ambroix in Bourges, where he maintained the first Michelin star obtained by his predecessor.  In 2009, Chef Adamski headed west to Bordeaux, where he took over management of Gabriel’s kitchens in a private hotel, Place de la Bourse, where thanks to his mastery of the great French classics, he was awarded his first Michelin star.

In 2012, thanks to his commitment to culinary excellence and the desire to pass on his knowledge, he became President of Team France Bocuse d’Or until 2020.  In 2021, he was appointed Vice President of the Toques Françaises.  In 2019, François Adamski joined Servair, a leading French airline catering company, as Corporate Chef, with the mission to promote the company’s culinary identity and encourage the sharing of knowledge, skills and abilities.  He is also the Secretary General of the Servair Culinary Studio, a laboratory made up of starred chefs and culinary experts, where he is in charge of the company’s culinary innovations.
