I really consider Lufthansa as one of the best inflight catering on international flights.
Varig was really not good,specially departing GRU to international destinations.Not doubt the worst bread on board(Coach).

Airlines with the BEST food I enjoyed in-flight:
1. Wardair Canada (aaah, that Filet Mignon!!)
2. Finnair (EXCELLENT cuisine)
3. Singapore Airlines (Superb)
And, the WORST food I ever digested in-flight was with:
1. Eastern Airlines (food so bad it's beyond description).
2. American Airlines ("Something Sh_ _ _ _ in the Air")
3. Mexicana (Montezumas revenge, anyone?).

I like Virgin Atlantic's food. Salad is always fresh, and the food just, well it looks and tastes like the airline actually cares. I've had awful meals - ex) British Airways, Continental. So my vote goes to VS.

This really depends on the class of service. The best overall I have had is CX in business (never done CX in first). AA has decent food in coach on international flights, and really good in business and first (including caviar & lobster in first). Their domestic coach food is not so good, and actually all but disappearing as of today! Worst airline food I've ever had - Sabena.

I've not flwon on that many airlines.
I think SQ provides wonderful food.Also CX as maybe the food suits me.Just like people said, comparing with Qantas and Ansetts catering on domestic routes, Qantas has made me dissapointed, with Ansett suprising me!

EAL401 Raised a very good point, and I concur. The quality of in-flight catering and overall service does indeed reflect the overall opinion carriers have of their passengers. I am still disgusted by the fact that American Airlines, and I believe, United, have cut out all meal service on flights 3hours or less. Mind you, with the questionable quality of food they served to begin with, perhaps this is a good thing for the passengers.
I still shudder when I remember the contents of the American Airlines "Bistro Bag" I picked up at the departure gate before boarding my DFW-ORD flight
2 years ago. A stale ham sandwich (the bun was so hard I could knock it against my meal tray) A stale chocolate chip cookie, a half-rotten apple, and a warm
small bottled water. Classy, very classy.

I fly mostly long haul...
LH has excellent food in business with a series of special menus executed by the most famous chefs in the world ( outbound from Germany) that is really exceptional in quality and creativity ( tuna sashimi with chutney as appetizer for example).
Their first is awesome with a DOUBLE round of severuga caviar with blinis and at least 4 condiments ( their amouse bouche appetizers are VERY yummy).
The wine selection by world champion Marcus Del Monego is stunninf considering the pressurization of the cabin and the flight attendants are trained in the wines selection and when you are not sure of what you would like they let you try all of them 35.000 feet degustations!!!( although also Finnair in biz has a great cellar, multiawarded).
Other great food was with CX in biz ( I love that they serve from the cart and you can actually see what the offers are) and then canapes and the first class style personalized catering is super.
Sabena to US was ( for the three times I tried it) surprisingly good. They work with young and promising chefs and they were very creative. The catering from US to Europe is generally of inferior quality due to the lest skilled chefs ( I have heard this also from one of the exec managers of LSG that was flying sitting close to me on a leg from JFK to FRA).
I was pleasantly surprised by UA to Portorico last february in economy when I was offered two choices of hot breakfast in economy and it was tasty and quite good.
Love the Do&Co catering of Lauda ( especially their Sacher torte!)
Scandinavian always treats me with fresh salmon with dill and northern delicacies...
SAA: great food ( especially their game) and cool desserts
all those little "sky deli" or whatever name they are called...the carrot and dip and other mystery food of AA,DL, CO domestic...
