I think it might be more educational to let us know what's really in those Economy class meals.....
Well I don't know either,
they all come deep frozen from a factory in Germany called "Frankenberg" in the Otto Lillenthalstrasse at FRA
, we only unpack them and put them on oven racks, this is for most US airlines like AA CO UA
something like this, a trained eye immidiatly recognises the EUR-USA service of UA
Ok some secrets,
anyone knows the famous Pastrami snack sandwich rotated several years on the pre arrival service of UA
It was very strange but really cool stuff to make!
ingredients for 1 PAX,
*one slice of pumpernickel bread
*15 g of butter
*80 g of fresh sliced NY pastrami
*45 g of säuerkraut in wine in a can (without sausages!)
*25 g of emmenthal slices
*15 g thousand island dressing
*4 wedges of unjacked potatous
*some pilipili, paprica powder and olive oil
put the butter in a pan, let it melt until it's hot and sizzles when you put in your slice of pumpernickel bread, frie your bread double side in the butter.
Take it out the pan, put it on a oven resistant bowl like plate to resemble UA
's cocotte and turn your oven on to 120°C (not too hot!)
Now, put the Pastrami slices on the bread and make a nice fluffy pile, on top of the pile place that Säerkraut, make a hole in it and fill that hole with the 1000nd island dressing.
Put the slices emmenthal on top of it
put the potatowedges in a bowl, put the olive oil over it together with some pilipili, paprica powder and season a bit, put it in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
see if the wedges are cooked, then place them in a small paper cup, put this paper cup in you UA
like cocotte, put the pastrami SDW in it and close it off with aluminum foil.
Now pretend you load the aircraft, and when you feel like eating it,
heat the oven to 150°C, put in your cocotte and let it heat up for 15 to 20 minutes, make sure your oven has convection (windblow).
now cut some melons, strawberrys, kiwi, pineapple, present it nicely on a plate, for the US'sers, take a cranberry apple juice(we don't have that in the EU, even not 7up or gatorade...) with it and enjoy the snack while you pretend you are almost arriving at IAD
Oh yes, a bonus
the salad mix on UA
EUR-USA is the following for a 763 F and C;
*850 g boston salad
*250 g red salad
*350 g lollo rosso
*450 g green curly lettuce
Stay tuned for the next broadcasting,
First class foie de gras with Mesclun salad!
