Updated: Oct 31, 2023


 

Private jets offer a level of luxury and sophistication that extends to their dining experiences. In this article, we’ll take you through the top 10 jet menu options you can savor while cruising at 40,000 feet.

That said…

Before we dive into the world of private jet dining, how about we explore the culinary treasures of St. Maarten and understand why it’s a hotspot for private jet travelers?


 

The St Maarten Experience

 

#1 Discovering the St Maarten’s culinary treasures


St Maarten is not just a Caribbean paradise; it's a culinary haven. Why, you ask? Well… in short, flavors from the French, the Dutch, and the Caribbean have all found a home on this island.

The local markets are brimming with fresh seafood, exotic fruits, and spices that vibrate.

While you’re there, don't forget to try traditional dishes like conch fritters, Johnny cakes, and the famous Creole sauce. These local flavors create a unique and diverse food scene that serves as the foundation for the delightful dishes you'll enjoy on private jets.



#2 Why private jets love St Maarten


St. Maarten's convenient location makes it a popular destination for those taking private jets. The island's location makes it a prime pit stop for transatlantic flights.

This, coupled with its stunning beaches and world-class resorts, has made St. Maarten a favored destination for jet-setters. Many visitors take advantage of the chance to sample the island's cuisine – which adds a new dimension to their trip.

Flying Seahorse top 10 jet menu options on private jets

 

In the world of aviation, as a flight attendant, you already have enough on your plate. That's why we've made it easy by compiling the top 10 jet menu options of private jets – sparing you from navigating our entire jet menu.


#1 Foie Gras (Plan or Truffle)


Foie Gras is luxury dining at its finest. Nothing beats it. That’s due to its exquisite taste and the intricate, time-intensive process of production. It's known for its creamy texture and rich, buttery flavor – hence making it a delicacy sought after by discerning palates.

There’s so much going on behind the scenes to get it to that stage where it looks and tastes pure bliss. Its luxurious appeal doesn’t only lie in its taste but also in the skill required to prepare it to perfection, often involving the fattened liver of a duck or goose.



#2 Seafood Platter


You step off a private jet onto the runway of the legendary Princess Juliana International Airport in St Maarten. The warm Caribbean breeze rustles your hair as you take in the breathtaking views of clear blue waters stretching as far as the eye can see.

The world of high-end travel is a marvelous thing.

But…

there’s a more pressing urge. The… Food!

… And in the heart of St Maarten, a sumptuous culinary adventure awaits

At Flying Seahorse, we take seafood seriously. It’s fresh… it’s vibrant… and most of all, it’s delicious… our Michelin star chef makes sure that it is. Whole lobster accompanied by a seasonal selection of seafood, artfully prepared, is just one example of the ocean delights that await you.

St. Maarten's beachfront setting and diverse marine life make it a haven for seafood lovers. When you opt for a seafood platter on your private jet, you're not just choosing a delicious meal but also a symbol of freshness and quality. These platters feature the freshest seafood available, all of which have been procured from local fishermen. Each item on the plate, from the sweet lobster tail to the crisp crab legs, has been expertly prepared to bring out the fresh ocean taste.



#3 Lobster Tail


Lobster tails are often served on a bed of exquisite asparagus tartare complemented by creamy ricotta, zesty citrus fruits, a rum and ginger sauce, and a drizzle of smoked paprika oil. This seafood specialty perfectly marries the colorful and fragrant accompaniments, creating a harmonious blend of taste sensations.



#4 Truffle Risotto (Optional to add)


The meal would be incomplete without the optional but highly suggested addition of a truffle risotto, especially for those who enjoy the earthy, fragrant qualities of truffles. The harmony of flavors in this rice dish is unmatched.



#5 Cheese Platter


For true cheese fans, nothing beats a carefully chosen cheese plate. It's an excellent choice for a mid-flight snack thanks to its assortment of exquisite cheeses, crackers, and fruits.



#6 Chocolate Sensation


Who says mouth-watering jet menu dessert, says “Chocolate Sensation” dish; and when we think of the Chocolate Sensation dish the amazing Chef at Flying Seahorse makes, unrestricted artistry is the first thing that comes to mind—the sort whose inherent beauty can't be taught.

The difference between this and a painting at the MET is that this one is meant for eating.

The Chocolate Sensation, a twist on the classic milk and cookies, is the signature dessert of Flying Seahorse in St Maarten, and it has been faithfully preserved by our Michelin star chef.

White chocolate ice cream coated with crushed Oreos sits over a velvety crémeux prepared with Valrhona Guanaja chocolate mousse; the combination is irresistible. On top of an Oreo-dusted ice cream globe is a dark chocolate ball, and orbiting it are planet-like dots of raspberry and mango gels. This dessert is a visual and gustatory delight.



#7 Bircher Muesli (Homemade)


Bircher Muesli, or "Bircher-Brenner Muesli" as it was formerly called, was developed as part of Dr. Bircher-ideology Brenner's that advocated for the health benefits of eating raw fruits and vegetables. While on a trek in the Swiss Alps, he was served a meal of shredded apples blended with nuts and honey, which he found to be both filling and refreshing. This was the spark that ignited his creative fire. The meal we now know as Bircher Muesli had its start when Dr. Bircher-Brenner, persuaded of its health benefits, began prescribing it to his patients. His invention eventually became the world-famous breakfast we know and adore today.



#8 Cobb Salad (Chicken/Shrimp)


Those who are watching their weight often opt for a fresh and filling Cobb salad, a jet menu dish that features an entire program of flavors starring avocado, cheddar or blue cheese, cucumber, tomatoes, egg, bacon, and a delightful tarragon dressing. You can even customize it further by adding chicken or shrimp to make it your own and hence, conjure up a delicious and satisfying meal.



#9 Canapé Caviar (Beluga/Oscietra)


Canapés topped with Beluga or Oscietra caviar will kick your private jet meal into high gear. The buttery canapé is the perfect vehicle for the salty burst of caviar.



#10 Vegetarian Lasagna


Vegetarians are not forgotten in the world of private jet dining. A vegetarian lasagna covered with delicious sauces and plenty of cheese is waiting for you to dig in.
