Imagine a restaurant where you can enjoy exquisite dishes that showcase the full breadth of Japanese cuisine, prepared by not just one superstar chef, but several of the country’s best. Transport this restaurant tens of thousands feet into the sky, add all the comforts and amenities of a first or business class seat on a stellar airline, and you have Japan Airlines’ BEDD concept, whose title combines the word “bed” with an extra D for “dining with delicious food in dreamlike comfort”, and dubbed “the most luxurious restaurant in the world”.
In order to craft an elevated culinary programme above and beyond your usual first and business class offerings, Japan Airlines (JAL) has collaborated with chefs who helm some of the best fine dining restaurants in the country. From proposing new recipes to devising novel preparation methods, the airline works closely with these culinary artisans to create unforgettable dining experiences.
For instance, the chefs came up with a unique method to reheat food to ensure meat dishes are as succulent as intended. Another highlight is the seasonal menu onboard, with chefs utilising ingredients that are unique to a particular season, be it spring or autumn.
