TORONTO, Nov. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Sunwing Café is back and tastier than ever. For the coming season, travellers can experience not one but two famous Canadian culinary experiences on route to the sunny south. New for this edition is the introduction of Schwartz’s Deli’s World Famous Original Smoked Meat, served on a pretzel roll with grainy mustard and mayonnaise spread, topped with a sliced pickle and prepared to a strict recipe devised by the iconic Montreal eatery.  A household name not just in Quebec, but across Canada, Schwartz’s Deli has been serving up its famous smoked meat for over nine decades. However, this is the first time that the landmark restaurant has partnered with an airline so that its award-winning smoked meat can now be enjoyed at 30,000 ft.

In addition, Sunwing is delighted to welcome back Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef, Lynn Crawford, back on board for a fourth consecutive year. New for the 2019/2020 season is the addition of Chef Lynn Crawford’s Croque-monsieur, made from oven-baked béchamel and gruyere cheese-crusted brioche slices filled with smoked ham, provolone, swiss cheese, mustard, mayonnaise and caramelized onions. Her Grilled Tex Mex Chicken Wrap, a perennial favourite among Sunwing travellers, is also back on the menu.

President of Sunwing Airlines, Mark Williams, welcomed the additions to the new menu. “We believe in being with our customers every step of the way and feel that their vacations with us should begin the moment they step on board. We are justly proud of our award-winning inflight service and our Sunwing Café menu plays a big part in it. By renewing our longstanding partnership with Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef Lynn Crawford and introducing Schwartz’s World Famous Original Smoked Meat, we are maintaining our promise to our customers to vacation better.”

“At Schwartz’s Deli, we’ve been delighting locals and visitors with our Famous Montreal Smoked Meat for over nine decades,” said Paul Nakis, Owner of Schwartz’s Deli. “We’re excited to embark on this new partnership which will see our signature product served at 30,000 ft. to travellers from coast to coast for the very first time.”

Chef Lynn Crawford also commented on the news, “I’m delighted to be working with Sunwing for another year, helping Canadians get their vacations off to the right start with award-wining inflight service on board Sunwing Airlines. The recipes I’ve created for the Sunwing Café this season offer passengers nutritious and flavoursome dishes that showcase quality, fresh ingredients.”
