Airplane food can be pretty forgettable.
Which is why it might surprise some to learn one airline just released a cookbook, so you can eat airplane food in your kitchen.
United Airlines wants people to get a taste of what airplane food is all about.
Don’t think peanuts and pretzels served in coach.
Think coconut soup with sambal oelek chicken.
The business-class meals are part of the United Polaris cookbook.
You’ll find over 40 recipes from United’s executive chefs, as well as chefs from The Trotter Project; a nonprofit organization that helps young chefs going into the restaurant industry.
The book is $29.99, and some of the money will go to the organization, according to the LA Times.
United isn’t the first airline to come out with a cookbook.
Southwest Airlines’ employees released one in 2006.
Delta’s flight attendants did the same thing in 1987.
Hawaiian Airlines and American West also released cookbooks.
Clearly, cookbooks inspired by onboard meals have taken off!
