A single serving of tiramisu is hardly the most outlandish request we have received at VistaJet. But in the right hands, even an ordinary dessert can become something quite extraordinary.
“We had one lovely customer who was 97-years-old,” begins Diego Sabino, our Vice President of Private Dining, and a true Italian. “And every single time she flew with us she’d ask for a tiramisu. So one day I decided I was going to give my own personal tiramisu recipe to our chef. I taught him how to make it, step-by-step — based on the instructions that my grandmother had taught me.”
“We made a single portion for her to enjoy on her next flight — but also a huge, family-sized portion for her to take home. I wrote a little note that explained that this was my family recipe, and how grateful I was to be able to serve it to her. As soon as she tried it, the client asked the Cabin Hostess to lend her her phone, so that she could call me immediately. She was crying. She told me that it was the most thoughtful thing that anyone had ever done for her. She said it was the finest tiramisu she’d ever had. And I was thrilled.”
