Airline food: Two top chef's say 'never'
Anthony Bourdain is a renowned chef, and a frequent traveler, and just a little cocky, which would seem to make him well qualified to offer advice about what food to order when on a plane. Per Bourdain? Don't order food at all. “You’re not digesting your food on the plane, which is why you feel like a horribly bloated beach ball when you get off,” says the host of the travel-food series Parts Unknown.
And to add woe to misery, you're jammed into a tiny seat, slightly hunched over, it's also not the best digestion situation.
Another famous chef echoes the same sentiment: "There’s no fucking way I eat on planes," celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. "I worked for airlines for ten years, so I know where this food’s been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got on board."
Ramsay didn't elaborate further but did say he eats at his restaurant in Terminal 5 of London's Heathrow Airport, named; Plane Food.
Bourdain; "The meals have to be prepped in advance, and freeze-drying and reheating doesn't do wonders for taste. What's more, “every food tastes completely different than it does on the ground, so they have to make adjustments to it."
SWA's peanuts are sounding pretty good, eh? And while a few airlines have started serving food you might want to eat, waiting to eat something when you land probably makes for a better end result.
