Rice pudding mouse, dragon feet and the hen house - these and other imaginative dishes will be on offer to young passengers beginning July 1st on board all Lufthansa long-haul flights, as well as longer flights within Europe from Germany. The dishes were created by the renowned 2-star Michelin chef Alexander Herrmann, who presented his creations to an international panel of 13 children in March.

The children between the ages of four and nine tasted a large number of creative meals prepared by LSG chefs. They could then choose their favorite dishes. The dragon feet (poultry sausages served with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes) and the rice pudding mouse (a composition of creamed rice pudding and raspberries) were particularly popular. The top chef was on hand to assist and advise the children throughout the entire time.

Teaching children to enjoy good food at an early age is a priority for Alexander Herrmann. Through his appearances on many TV networks, his three restaurants in Nuremberg and Wirsberg, and his cooking school, the Franconian chef has already inspired many people on the topic of nutrition.

The new children's menus can be ordered in advance (up to 24 hours before departure) and free-of-charge for all Lufthansa long-haul flights and for some longer Lufthansa flights within Europe for children under the age of twelve. Further information on booking children's menus can be found at the following link: https://www.lufthansa.com/us/en/childrens-menus-on-board.

Since 2002, renowned chefs have been developing children's meals for the approximately 2.2 million young guests who travel with Lufthansa every year. In recent years, Johann Lafer, Sarah Wiener and Cornelia Poletto, among others, have provided fun and variety on flight journeys with their colorful and lovingly designed children's meals. The children's meals still maintain the principles of a balanced diet - for example, only high-quality fats, such as olive oil, are used and only in reduced quantities.

Additional Lufthansa summer season news

Also new to three destinations in the US and Canada – Charlotte, NC, Montreal and Toronto – is Lufthansa’s state-of-the-art and flagship aircraft, the A350. This particular aircraft is the world's most advanced, environmentally-friendly long-haul aircraft. It uses 25 percent less kerosene, produces 25 percent fewer emissions and is significantly quieter on take-off.
