National flag carrier Finnair announced collaboration with Chef DeAille Tam to bring modern and fresh Chinese flavors for its business class customers traveling on all Finnair routes from Greater China to Helsinki, said Finnair in a press release.

Chef Tam has designed a series of dishes, which will be served exclusively in Finnair´s business class on all long-haul flights from Greater China to Helsinki as of December 5, 2019.

DeAille Tam, who was born in Hong Kong, is an award-winning chef, whose work has taken her to top restaurants on three continents. She was the first female chef to receive a Michelin star in 2018 in China, and she has created culinary experiences for several international brands. The tasty dishes created by DeAille form a modern Chinese-inspired menu where East meets West in a delicious, fresh form.

“One of my passions is to bring Chinese cuisine to a broader audience,” said Chef DeAille Tam. “My mission is to give people an experience when they eat, a memory to keep. I think the aircraft is a perfect place for this.”

“We are excited to collaborate with Chef Tam as she treats every flavor and every dish like a culinary adventure,” said Maarit Keränen, Head of Inflight Food & Beverage Concepts at Finnair. “Our Signature Chef program honors the cuisines of our key markets, and we are proud to have Chef Tam’s menu as a part of our Finnair experience.”
