Love it or hate it, airline food is unavoidable to the avid traveller.
For some, it is a treat that breaks up the monotony of the long-haul. Others would rather go hungry than deal with the miscellaneous textures and taste often associated with the midair meal.
But not all airline meals are created equal. For example, United Airlines are so chuffed with their culinary offerings they’ve released a cookbook so you can take the experience home with you.
Boasting 40 recipes inspired by the airline’s Business Class, aka ‘Polaris’, the book features recipes from the airline’s executive chefs and chefs from the Trotter Project, which is a nonprofit organisation working to provide mentorship and education to young chefs in the hospitality industry.
Plus, a portion of the proceeds from the book’s sales will be donated to the Trotter project.
According to Traveller, the recipes range from fancy sounding degustations such as “coconut soup with sambal oelek chicken” to more questionable recipes served to its international economy passengers.
The cookbook is available for purchase from the official United Airlines shop for US$29.99 ($41.75 AUD) should you feel the urge to bring airline fine dining to your own home.
