Chef Daniel Rose creates gourmet dishes for Air France

Daniel Rose

Air France has tapped American chef Daniel Rose, popular on both sides of the Atlantic for his French cuisine, to create three signature dishes for Paris-bound travelers flying from Canada and the US. 

Business class passengers flying from 15 cities in North America to Paris will be able to sample the cuisine that made Rose a star chef in France and earned the American a Michelin star in the US. 

Starting this fall, Air France's in-flight menu will feature a trio of dishes developed by Rose: poultry gratin with onions; warm poultry paté with foie gras; and cod with turnip and beurre blanc. 

The dishes will be served on two-month rotations from September to August, 2020. 

When Rose opened Spring in Paris in 2006, the Chicago native shook up the Parisian dining scene with his seasonal, improvisational menu -- classic French dishes made with fresh, local ingredients. 

In recent years, he opened La Bourse et La Vie and Chez La Vieille, top dining destinations in the city for refreshed classic French dishes. 

Rose opened his first US restaurant Le Coucou in New York in 2016, which went on to unlock a Michelin star in 2019. 

Rose joins a long list of gastronomic chefs who have contributed to Air France's in-flight menu, including Anne-Sophie Pic, Guy Martin and the late Joel Robuchon.
