KLM to Serve Cuisine from Richard Ekkebus


Heads up, foodies! From December 1, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will serve its World Business Class passengers meals created by Richard Ekkebus of the restaurant Amber in The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hong Kong.

Previous chefs whose cuisine has graced the tables in World Business Class include Sergio Herman, Jonnie Boer, Mario Ridder and Flemish chef Peter Goossens.

The dishes created by Richard Ekkebus will be served to World Business Class passengers from December 1 until the end of September 2013 on all intercontinental flights out of Amsterdam. A new development is that Richard Ekkebus’s dishes will also be served on flights out of Hong Kong.

As Director of Culinary Operations and Food and Beverage of The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Richard Ekkebus supervises all dishes in one of the top five-star hotels in Hong Kong. Under his guidance, the restaurant earned its second Michelin star for the fourth consecutive year. Amber is one of the top 50 restaurants in the world.

In early 2013, Richard Ekkebus will further expand his activities in China when the restaurant Fifty 8° Grill by Richard Ekkebus opens in Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai.
