Ten months in development, and made to taste good at 35,000 feet, the Flying Burger will be available on flights next month.
BA is one of the leaders of the “height cusine” concept, recognising that food tastes different at altitude because of the effect on the tastebuds. So Mark Tazzioli and BA have been working on a special burger recipe.
We understand that the burger is made from three different cuts of British beef (chuck, cheek and onglet) to ensure full flavour, even in an airplane cabin pressurised to about 8,000 feet.
The beef will be British, but Monterey Jack cheese will feature, as will gherkins, tomato relish, and the very trendy brioche bun.
It will be served with a side of triple-cooked chips and choice of relishes.
