Chicken a la King was extremely popular in the 50s and 60s. So popular that you would think it was created during that time period but it was actually created in the late 19th century. It was such a prevalent dish during the mid century that writer Calvin Trillin was wondering where its whereabouts was […]

The baked goods play a crucial role in Helen Oyeyemi’s new novel of the same name — and in countless narratives across history Helen Oyeyemi baked, and ate, a lot of gingerbread while writing her sixth novel, Gingerbread. There was the chewy, dense Yorkshire Parkin, often consumed during Guy Fawkes celebrations, and a crispy, crumbly […]

I have been out of the US for two weeks, almost exactly at this point.  One week was spent in London to connect with my family, and one week has been spent in Kigali, getting settled in to both my apartment and my new role. I wanted to share some initial thoughts on Kigali, the […]

A BRITISH Airways passenger was left stunned after being served a Chicken Caesar bread roll with so little filling that even cabin crew were “embarrassed” to serve it. The airline later apologised for serving the measly sandwich choice. Jo’s sandwich was less than pleasing The airline promised “chicken breast in a creamy mayonnaise with slow roast tomato topped with crispy iceberg lettuce served in a seeded roll”. But what Jo Henderson-Tchertoff, 50, opened on her March 28 Heathrow-JFK flight was much less appetising. Her snap shows a rather dry-looking roll with a dash of butter smeared with what appears to be mayonnaise but with little evidence of chicken and none of the tomato. A few bits of limp-looking lettuce have been plopped on top. Jo, from London, paid around £270 for her flight to New York on the way to Miami for a cruise. Despite advertising tomato, there was very little in the sandwich Jo claims the airline added insult to injury by leaving her bags behind, meaning she did not get them until the following day. She also claims a BA flight three weeks ago completely ran out of food. Jo uploaded the picture to Facebook last week with the caption: “For amusement. Served on a recent LHR to JFK. BA catering getting worse.” Many users reacted to Jo’s picture with some sharing their own in-flight experience. Jo posted it on Facebook to share with other people complaining Facebook user Karly Chick said: “Absolutely horrendous.” Emily Williams added: “That’s turned my stomach.” Debbie McIntyre wrote: “Think you’d have to sniff that, to see if there’s any chicken or tomatoes have been anywhere near that bread roll.” Eduardo R Abreu said: “They are despicable. On a recent flight JFK to LHR for breakfast they ‘threw’ a very cold croissant with cream cheese in it – nothing to drink. I threw it right back at them.” Social media users responded with horror Others shared their experiences with the airline But Simon Rowland accused Jo of overreacting, writing: “Chicken Caesar is definitely chicken in cheesy mayo. I’d agree I’d have expected tomato whole, not as part of the dressing. “But that’s not worthy of calling it out as some sort of abomination. You flew economy. This is the pre arrival snack. You are badly misrepresenting things.” Jo hit back: “As I said in my post it was ‘for amusement’. How can I be ‘badly misrepresenting things’ when I’ve shown a picture? I did not call it out as ‘an abomination’. “I have flown BA many times and have done for years. I travel frequently for work and experience a number of airlines. Jo responded to one social media user who said she was being “trivial” “I also travel in a variety of classes and you’re insinuating that because I was in ‘Economy’ that this food is acceptable. “Even the steward was embarrassed to serve this. This should not have been served on any airline, in any class as it is not really fit for purpose.” Speaking today Jo said: “I can’t remember what the first meal service was as I didn’t eat it and this roll was served pre landing. “I was not impressed when I saw it. I am just shocked that whoever made this roll thought it was acceptable. The Steward seemed a bit embarrassed too. The British Airways flight was bound for New York when the sandwich was served “Also on this flight, mine was the only suitcase that wasn’t loaded so they lost my baggage too. “I did get it the next day but I’ve still to get an explanation or apology from British Airways. “I just think the decline in service and the don’t care attitude is getting worse.” Jo was not impressed with the company three weeks prior when she was returning from Moscow, Russia to London Gatwick Premium Economy. She claimed that the company had run out of meals and told her that she would have to “eat the bread rolls.” [bc_video video_id=”5796178150001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”The worst high street sandwiches that only have half the filling it says it has on the packet “] She said: “British Airways ran out of one of the main meals and unfortunately I couldn’t eat either of the other two choices, so the attendant told me I’d just have to ‘eat bread rolls’. “I did write and complain and did get an apology from them.” A spokeswoman for British Airways said: “We pride ourselves on the quality of the meals we offer on board, and have heavily invested in our catering, in all cabins. “We are sorry that our standards fell below our customer’s expectations on this occasion.” [article-rail-section title=”Most read in travel” posts_category=”22″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] In February this year, a couple splashed out thousands for a BA World traveller Plus ticket during a 12 hour flight – only to be handed a croissant and cereal bar instead of the promised traditional full English.

Today I wanted to talk about Ravioli, which is my favourite type of pasta. The word “Ravioli” is derived from an old Italian word i.e. riavvolgere, which means “to wrap” and dates back to the 14th century.  Ravioli is Italy’s answer to dumplings. Tiny doughy parcels of delight stuffed with everything from Burrata to Butternut […]
