I’ve had the privilege of being part of Sunwing Vacation’s Kidcation Expert Panel for the past year. In that time, my family and I travelled four times to amazing destinations. That’s eight flights experiencing Sunwing’s exceptional customer service. It was also eight times eating the same old predictable airline food. What can I say? I’m a food snob.
So when Sunwing announced their new Sunwing Café in collaboration with Food Network Celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford, I was elated to say the least. Bye bye pizza rolls and hello gourmet buy-on-board options.
In November, I attended the Sunwing Café kickoff at the Ruby Watch Co Restaurant to test the new menu and meet with Celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford herself. As guests we tested the entire new menu being offered on board all Sunwing flights and here’s what you can expect.
Honey Mustard Peameal Bacon Slider with Sweet Onion Marmalade
Honestly, just typing that out had me salivating again. I simply could not help myself and “tested” this menu item a few times. It is simply amazing and part of the new breakfast menu. This particular offering was created by Chef Lynn Crawford, but guests also have the option of warm oatmeal, a Ham & Cheese Croissant or a breakfast sandwich. No matter what you choose, combined with Sunwing’s exclusive Champagne service, it’s the perfect way to kick off your vacation.
Baked Mafalda Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes, Mozzarella, Jalapeno Jack Cheddar, Lemon Ricotta and Tomato Basil Sauce
Wow, that’s a mouthful. A delicious mouthful I might add. I’m a sucker for pasta and Chef Lynn Crawford really knocked it out of the park with this creation. On our last trip to Jamaica, I simply had to have the Baked Mafalda Pasta, but my husband opted for the Macaroni & Three Cheese entree. They were both incredible. Pasta lovers rejoice.
Beef Short Ribs
You know you’ve left the ordinary when slow cooked boneless Beef Short Ribs served with herb roasted fingerling potatoes, heirloom carrots, double smoked bacon, pearl onions and Bourguignon sauce is offered to you 30,000 feet in the air. I fell in love with this Chef Lynn Crawford at Ruby Watch Co. and had my love confirmed on our flight home from Jamaica. It’s delicious, and my personal favourite.
Of course these aren’t the only changes to the new menu. Look for the new Kidcation Box for your youngest travelling companions (packed with surefire kid hits like GoGo Squeez and Goldfish). Guests, who don’t quite feel like a full meal might opt for a snack box with crackers and gourmet snacking options like smoked gouda spread or bruschetta.
With the addition of the new Sunwing Café menu items, it’s no wonder that Sunwing Vacations is #1toTheSun in Canada. Experience the difference yourself on your next Sunwing vacation.
