Ina Garten Disagrees With Anthony Bourdain And Gordon Ramsay About This Food Rule

Celebrity chefs such as Ina Garten, Anthony Bourdain, and Gordon Ramsay are legends in their own right. That said, all of them have had some pretty strong opinions through the course of their careers. Here's a strong example: Ramsay, as per Food & Wine, has been very vocal about his dislike for airplane food and thinks it's disappointing fare, to say the least. He didn't mince his words when he said that he never touches the stuff. "I worked for airlines for years, so I know where food's been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got on board," he explained.

Meanwhile, the late Bourdain also felt that noshing on airplane food is never a good experience. "No one has ever felt better after eating plane food," he told Bon Appétit. "I think people only eat it because they're bored. I don't eat on planes. I like to arrive hungry." Chef Garten completely disagrees with Ramsay and Bourdain, though.

Garten is OK with airplane food

According to Time, chef Ina Garten doesn't despise airplane food as much as Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay do. In fact, she usually doesn't carry any food with her and relies on the options that are available on a flight. "There's always something that they serve, like the fruit and cheese platter, that's perfectly fine," she revealed. "Delta has really good food in the business class, in my experience." Interesting! 

Airplane food may not be known for being mouthwatering, but some individuals are trying to change that. For example, consider French-American chef Daniel Boulud, who's been involved with creating dishes for Air France. The chef knows this isn't an easy task in the least (via the Special Sauce Podcast). "I enjoy the challenge," he shared. "And I hope people appreciate the fact that I'm just trying to elevate the offering." What are your thoughts on airplane meals: yay or nay?
