TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – EVA Air announced a host of new meals, designer amenity kits, and sleepwear exclusively for Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Class passengers last week.

The Taiwanese airline has partnered with luxury brands Salvatore Ferragamo and Rimowa, designer Jason Wu, and a number of acclaimed chefs.

For flights from Taipei to Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco, Taiwanese masterchef Huang Ching-biao (黃清標) has created a Tan-inspired menu, which champions slow cooking and traditional techniques. The menu features pork shoulder, Thai-style shrimp, abalone in oyster sauce, and a taro and sweet potato dessert.

Flights departing from Taiwan will receive kits featuring a carry case in the style of Rimowa luggage, and comes with cosmetics by Clarins as well as other products. The Rimowa amenity kits have been popular for a number of years, and this is the first time that the case is available in “Carmona Red.”
