Gordon Ramsay: “There’s No F$%^ing Way I Eat On Planes”
It’s a little ironic. Despite spending a decade helping to create them, celebrity chef and potty-mouth Gordon Ramsay has issued a blanket condemnation of airline meals.
The restaurateur and TV chef claims that in-flight food is unhygienic and says that he is careful to always eat a snack before he boards.
Ramsay spent years on a panel of international culinary experts that advised Singapore Airlines on its in-flight catering.
But he says the experience has put him off eating airline meals for life.
He told online fashion and lifestyle magazine Refinery29: “There’s no f***ing way I eat on planes. I worked for airlines for 10 years, so I know where this food’s been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got on board.”
Ramsay did not say whether his attack applied to the food on SQ, which has not responded to his comments, according to The Times.
The chef, who owns a restaurant at Heathrow’s Terminal 5, said his favourite pre-flight option was a light snack, in particular “a nice selection of Italian meats, a little glass of red wine, some sliced apples or pears with some parmesan cheese.”
