In First Class, passengers can enjoy a starter of langoustine with tomato mousse, followed by a main course of veal filet mignon with conchiglioni pasta filled with aubergine caviar. 

Business Class passengers have the option of beef tenderloin with pesto polenta or grilled chicken breast with gnocchetti di Zita pasta, complemented by a Vaudois dessert of raspberry and caramelised pistachio éclair.

SWISS's Premium Economy Class menu also draws inspiration from Canton Vaud, featuring local cheeses like Gruyère and Bleu du Village, and finishing with a classic apricot tart.

The 'SWISS Taste of Switzerland' program, launched in December 2002, takes First Class and Business Class passengers on a culinary journey through Switzerland’s regions. In 2022, the program was extended to Premium Economy Class. Every three months, a new Michelin-starred and Gault-Millau-point top chef is invited to create a selection of dishes from their home canton, emphasising regional and seasonal specialties. The meals are paired with wines and cheeses from the featured region. To date, the program has showcased 84 guest chefs from all 26 Swiss cantons.
