This Is The One Place Chef Gordon Ramsay Will Never Eat

Can't say I blame him.

If you haven’t already heard of Gordon Ramsay, stop what you’re doing and go binge-watch 30 episodes of Hell’s Kitchen” or “Master Chef.” He’s foulmouthed, hilarious and actually quite a good chef. He also refuses to eat airplane food.

In an interview with Refinery 29, Ramsay pulled no punches when talking about his distaste—nay, his hatred—for airplane food.

“There’s no f-ing way I eat on planes,” Ramsay told Refinery 29. “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.”

The chef prefers to have a light bite beforehand, preferably at his own restaurant in London’s Heathrow Airport that is cheekily named Plane Food. If he can’t eat there, he’ll get a small variety of Italian bites.

“A nice selection of Italian meats, a little glass of red wine, some sliced apples or pears with some parmesan cheese,” is the perfect, flavorful pre-flight meal Ramsay says.
