South American fish and eastern Pacific shellfish are among the highlights of a revamped in-flight menu carrier LATAM says showcases “the versatility of Latin American cuisine”.

Executive chef Felipe Gutiérriez has come with a “gastronomic proposal” that draws on the region’s “multiple options of tropical fruits, seasoning and tubers from the high plateau” for premium business flyers, the carrier said.

Dishes will be washed down with a “robust selection “of wines put together after Héctor Vergara, the only master sommelier in Latin America, reviewed more than 500 possibilities.

“We are a multicultural company and, in this sense, we want to bring our customers closer to the flavours of our continent with a new menu that highlights local products and high-quality cuisine,” said Paulo Miranda, customers vice president at LATAM Airlines Group.
