    • @ Jake – I had never heard of Southpoint Chowder and had to look it up. I found a recipe from American Airlines’ consulting chef Sam Choy, and after reading the ingredients, I think I REALLY need to try it!

      8 servings 8 mussels
      1 pound firm white fish
      1 pound shrimp
      1 pound scallops
      6 strips bacon, diced
      1 onion, minced
      3 stalks celery, minced
      1 potato, peeled and diced
      1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
      2 cups fish stock (recipe follows)
      1/4 cup creamed corn
      1/4 cup fresh corn kernels
      Salt and white pepper to taste
      Pinch thyme
      2 cups heavy cream
      Chopped parsley for garnish

      @ TFD – I had the same reaction…Char Siu Chicken? Hmmmmm…. It might not be authentic but it’s certainly ‘creative’! 😉

      @ nikos – They do look tasty!

  1. WTF? They all look great in the promo shots, but they won’t look like that on the airplane. Let’s also be clear here about “Premium Class.” That does NOT mean premium Economy class. What was the first clue? Use of the word, ‘scallop.’ Three of those plates would make a good meal…

  2. Presentation is pretty poor here and I can’t imagine what it will look like on the plane. Unless this is for Y.

    Also, I hope they will put in actual rice cookers on the plane. Reheated rice rarely tastes good.
