Ever wondered why inflight food hardly ever tastes good? Celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal attempts to answer that question while trying to satisfy the tastebuds of 100 000 airline passengers. He will be doing all that and more, in the tiny confines of a plane’s galley. This will all be part of his Heston’s Mission Impossible programme, to be shown on Channel 4.
Blumenthal will be collaborating with BA crew members Jackie Simister and Simon Curley in order to come up with a meal that will taste just as good at 35 000 feet in the air as it does on the ground. They will be working with Steve Walpole, BA’s develop chef to develop that meal, which will then be judged by a tasting panel.
Changing the bad reputation of airline food may seem like an impossible mission, but Blumenthal is no stranger to challenges. If anything, the award-winning chef of the Fat Duck Restaurant in Bray seems jump at them. He recently gave the menu at Little Chef a make-over, and will also attempt to do the same for NHS meals in the Heston’s Mission Impossible series. If his menu for BA proves successful, then BA passengers will be able to enjoy his creations as part of their inflight meals. Anyone ready for snail porridge, followed by bacon-and-egg ice cream?
