Between all his television shows, we’ve seen Gordon Ramsay eat some pretty terrible food over the years, but there’s one thing he swears he will never eat, and it’s airline food.
The fiery chef said he worked for an airline for 10 years, saw how the food was handled, and learned to never put it anywhere near his Scottish lips, according to an interview with Refinery 29.
When it comes to eating on an airplane, Ramsay said, “There’s no fucking way I eat on planes.”
Instead, when flying out of London’s Heathrow airport, he eats at his own restaurant, ironically called “Plane Food” in terminal five. If not there, his pre-flight meals consist of Italian meats, sliced apples or pears, and red wine.
It would have been nice if he had elaborated on the airline food, because he made it sound like it’s a pretty sketchy situation.
According to the Science Channel show How It’s Made, the food on planes isn’t as bad as people make it out to be, but Ramsay seems to be a straight shooter, and isn’t afraid to tell it how it is.
I’d like to think airline food isn’t as bad as foul-mouthed chef makes it out to be, but now it’s going to cross my mind on every flight. Thanks a lot, Gordon.
