Those who are serious about airplane food might be interested to know that the chef who owns a Michelin star, Tom Kerridge, designed gourmet food options for the new Speedbird Cafe gives British Airways.
The cafe is for passengers flying in economy flights short distance from airline, and is designed to ensure passengers receive their first meal of choice, while reducing waste on board. Tom Kerridge-designed dishes were created with a special focus on British provenance, and include signature pies and sandwiches. Passengers can purchase food, beverages and retail items on board up to 12 hours before departure.
Items on offer include a hot steak pie and beer; ham and smoked cheddar sandwich; Vegan Spiced Cauliflower Tortilla Wrap; chicken, bacon and celery brioche and a vegetarian brie plow sandwich.
The airline will also continue to offer complimentary refreshments at every bout, including a bottle of water and a snack such as a breakfast bar or chips. THE British Airways worked closely with Tom on creating British staples for our short-distance menu, and he created a video to explain the thought process that went into making sure the flavors worked at altitude.
“I am truly delighted to be working with British Airways again and to have the opportunity to champion the best of Brits for so many people,” he says. “A sandwich, made with care and great flavors, can be a perfect meal and I hope passengers will appreciate my short-distance menu.”
Menu items can be ordered through the new online Speedbird Café hosted on the Flight Retail website. British Airways on here.
