What is wrong with the food on qantas?
Seriously, I think today’s business class menu was put together by a lazy, hungry drunk. Entree was conventional – Parma ham, parmagiano and rocket. Only the halal, kosher, vegan, vegetarian and readers of the latest research on red / smoked meat would have any issue with this. Can’t imagine many of them fly business class on qantas…
The main course was the familiar banal options of beef with something overcooked, fish with something overcooked or dead animal with salad. Never mind that vegetarians are obviously special needs people and not part of the dietary mainstream.
As usual, I chose the salads in the vague hope I would get something plucked live from its garden bed some time in the last week. Hmmm. It was fairly good on the freshness, but I think the last time I ate such a weird combination was probably Holiday Inn room service in Utah. I would be very interested to hear the philosophy of the chef who decided that poached chicken breast, grilled tomato, shredded capsicum, goats cheese, sultanas, olive oil and sweet vinaigrette with tat soi and lettuce were a winning business class combination.
I cook dinner every day that I can negotiate control of a kitchen, and that, even given the constraints of an airborne cuisine, just sounds like rubbish to me.
What do you think? I’m still hungry.
Update: no animals were harmed in researching this blog, but I did discover a brilliant website called http://airline meals.net.
