Between 11 and 24 October 2017, SWISS will be celebrating the crowning of Thurgau’s apple queen with special dishes on board selected European flights.
Thurgau is commonly known as the apple canton of Switzerland. Every year, the canton crowns its apple queen, who acts as a representative of the canton and its fruit for twelve months. This year, the OLMA, the agricultural fair of St. Gallen in eastern Switzerland will serve as the place of crowning and inauguration and Thurgau will be invited as a guest canton. An excellent opportunity for “Mostindien”, as Thurgau is lovingly called because of its extensive fruit production, to present itself at its best. The crowning of this year’s apple queen takes place on 21 October.
You can look forward to the culinary highlights on board, too. On selected European flights, we’ll be serving veal with an apple vinaigrette and millet salad. On longer flights, a choice between sauerbraten from Thurgau with a potato-apple-celeri gratin or a cheese spaetzle gratin with sliced apples will be available as a main course. For dessert, you can look forward to a piece of apple cake and a traditional apple juice cream.
Our service is individual and based entirely on your requirements. After a drink to welcome you on board, you can enjoy our award-winning cuisine as a light Quick Meal or in several courses, accompanied by fine wines. And if you feel peckish in between, we have a selection of snacks and ice creams to tempt you.
SWISS Taste of Switzerland
SWISS Taste of Switzerland is served on all flights departing from Switzerland. This award-winning gastronomic concept lets top Swiss chefs interpret the culinary variety of our country in their own unique ways. The results are seasonal dishes from Swiss regions that impress and delight.
Enjoy culinary delights from the canton of Thurgau in SWISS First and SWISS Business on intercontinental flights leaving Switzerland from September to the end of November.
The region of Thurgau unfolds over gentle hills on the southern shore of Lake Constance. Families love the campsites at the water’s edge. Holidaymakers interested in culture stray off the beaten path on journeys of discovery. And the cosy ‘Buure-Beizen’ and 20 or so Gault & Millau restaurants invite you to stay and feast.
Christian Kuchler took over the renowned Zum Schäfli tavern in Wigoltingen from his father Wolfgang in 2015. Awarded 18 Gault & Millau points and a Michelin star, his cooking thrives on the tension between his native homeland and a cosmopolitan curiosity. Christian values simple, creative market cuisine and cultivates the modern form of traditional French cooking.
