Finnair has announced its new partnership with Finnish Chef Eero Vottonen for its latest Signature Menu. The new collaboration will bring true Nordic elements to Finnair’s long-haul business class customers flying out of Helsinki to all destinations as of 11 January, 2017.
Last year, Eero Vottonen was selected as Finland’s candidate for the prestigious Bocuse d’Or competition taking place in Lyon, France.


The Bocuse D’Or is arguably the biggest culinary competition in the world, bringing 24 chefs from different countries to compete on the international stage. During his career, Vottonen has worked in the top kitchens of Finland including restaurants such as Chez Dominique, Luomo, G.W. Sundmans and Olo.

“Eero has fast become one of the best chefs in Scandinavia and we are very excited to offer our long-haul business class passengers his exceptional food,” said Maarit Keränen, Head of In-Flight Service at Finnair. “With next year marking Finland’s centennial anniversary, it’s a great opportunity for us to collaborate with Finland’s candidate for the Bocuse d’Or competition. We’d like to wish Eero all the best as he sets his sights on the final preparations for the prestigious event in January.”

“Throughout the past few years, I've been fortunate enough to have the chance to work with many top chefs and I’ve discovered a wide variety of techniques and disciplines through these experiences,” said Eero Vottonen. “The philosophy I bring to cooking is actually quite simple, the flavour always comes first and I want to use quality ingredients that are sourced from local suppliers.”
