Olympics bug bite you?
There are still event tickets left – but why start the experience in the UK? Start on the way over.
A few celebrity chefs have gotten the chance to create meals for airlines – tackling the difficulties of preparing and serving meals in cramped galleys and the lackluster abilities of our taste buds at high altitudes. It’s an Olympian feat – and that’s just the point. If you are headed to the UK Olympics and Paralympics this summer (lucky you) then you can sample some of Britain’s best chefs while in the air en route.
British chefs Heston Blumenthal worked with Simon Hulstone who created the special menus for British Airways. The aim was to be inspired by post-war British food and airline food in 1948. You can sample the new menus on long-haul flights from London Heathrow from July-Sept. in First, Club, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller cabins.
It’s called Height Cuisine and it’s available from July-Sept. in First, Club, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller cabins. Here are a few high lights:
•Rillette of mackerel dressed on a pickled cucumber carpaccio with sour dough croutes •Fish pie using sustainable sourced hake, dressed with parmesan pomme puree and a warm tartare sauce
• Potted braised beef with a potato and horseradish topping, served with hispy cabbage, baby carrots and roasted shallots with a rich jus.
