Breakfast—it’s the most important meal of the day. While many view breakfast as a simple meal, it often reflects a country’s culture and history. Be sure to try some of the delicious items listed below the next time your private jet touches down in one of these countries. And don’t forget, we can always add these to your catering order for your flight!
Labneh in Lebanon
When you charter a private jet to Lebanon, enjoying some Labneh with your breakfast is an absolute must. Labneh is a typical ingredient that you’ll find on breakfast menus in Lebanon and throughout the Middle East. It’s a soft, spreadable cheese made from yogurt that’s drained of most of its moisture. Traditionally, labneh gets an olive oil drizzle and a sprinkle of fresh mint, and gets paired with cucumbers and olives. It’s a savory breakfast delight that helps you feel refreshed in the morning.
Full Irish Breakfast
A full Irish breakfast almost is like a customary American breakfast on steroids, and is perfect for those on a low-carb diet. It typically comes with generous portions of black pudding (blood sausage medallions), white pudding (like black pudding, minus the blood), fried tomatoes, fried eggs, sausages, bacon or ham, and soda bread. Some even like to add baked beans as a side dish. If you enjoy your breakfast in a gastro-pub, wash it down with a pint of Guinness.
Miso Soup in Japan
Private jet charter to Japan often means a lots of meetings and running around. Miso soup is a great option for busy people because it doesn’t take long to make. A basic miso soup comes with a blend of dashi (stock), miso (fermented bean paste) that’s sweet or salty and veggies. Like minestrone soup, miso soup varies by cook. Common soup ingredients include rice, green onions, pickled vegetables, seaweed, and tofu.
Kasha in Russia
Kasha is a simple buckwheat porridge that’s popular in Russia, where a warm breakfast brings comfort on a cold morning. It’s made by cooking buckwheat groats with water for at least 20 minutes. After the buckwheat is soft, you flavor it as you would oatmeal—with butter, salt, sugar, cinnamon, raisins, or berries.
Huevos Rancheros in Mexico
When your charter a private jet to Mexico you a likely looking forward to some spicy and delicious Mexican cuisine. Authentic Huevos Rancheros are more than just scrambled eggs with hot sauce wrapped in a huge flour tortilla. A fried egg sits atop a corn tortilla with fresh salsa spread under or over the egg. Garnishes and accompaniments can include cilantro, avocado, cheese, beans, steak, and/or chorizo.
Congee in China
Congee is a savory porridge made from rice that’s popular throughout China and other parts of Asia. Some see it as a curative breakfast food, kind of like chicken soup. The rice gets its texture because it’s simmered until the grain dissolves. The additional ingredients within the congee vary by cook and can include green onions, duck, pork, fish, pickled vegetables, and fresh herbs.
Vegemite in Australia
Just as you would spread jam on toast, the Aussies spread Vegemite on theirs. Vegemite tastes like salty fermented yeast, which could take some getting used to if you didn’t grow up eating the stuff. To make a Vegemite toast treat, some slather the spread on bread, sprinkle a healthy amount of cheese on top and toast it until the cheese melts.
Breakfast in Italy
Italians go lighter on breakfast so they can save room for a big lunch. A typical Italian breakfast spread is similar to what you’d find at a hotel’s continental breakfast (i.e., fruit, pastries, fresh bread, fresh juice and coffee), but upgraded. Trade the bananas, apples, and navel oranges for Sicilian oranges, plums, figs, and Italian apricots, and the coffee for espresso. On some tables, you’ll even find cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, and finely carved prosciutto. Yum!
