Listen Now: United Airlines Releases Cookbook Based on First-Class Plane Food
If airline food is your favorite part of flying, now you don’t even need a ticket.
United Airlines is releasing a cookbook based on its business class meals. The thirty dollar book of delicacies features more than forty recipes from United’s executive chefs.
The project will also benefit The Trotter Project which works to help young chefs in the culinary and hospitality fields. A portion of the books sales will go to The Trotter Project and some recipes from the young chefs will be featured.
And you won’t find any recipes for dry chicken or cold pasta in here. Instead, the collection of recipes is inspired by the service and experience business class passengers have come to expect. That includes meals of coconut soup and indian-inspired chicken, dishes economy will never see.
This isn’t the first time an airline has traveled the unlikely route of a cookbook. In 2006 southwest airlines published, “Feel the Spirit, Savor the Fare.”
Back in 1987, Delta put out a book of recipes from flight attendants called “first-class meals.” Of course that was back when flying was fun.
