A CHEF shared her top trick for making airplane food taste better during a flight.
Nina Compton — a chef at Compère Lapin and Bywater American Bistro in New Orleans — said tangy sauce and rock salt are essential travel condiments.
She said she carries a “small container of salt flakes and a miniature bottle of hot sauce” on every flight to add to her plane meal Traveler.com.
However, the chef explained that condiments provided by the flight crew can also work, with many offering salt and pepper with meals.
She’s not the only chef to swear by it — Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton said his Celeb pal Jude Law also swore by it.
He said: “It was Law telling me to always take Tabasco on a plane – plane food is always bland so giving him a kick is great.
“I just try my best not to eat on the plane, I can usually do that for up to 12 hours [but] When I fly to Australia I have to eat because I’m on a plane 24 hours a day.
“I just eat the protein, drowned in Tabasco, it tastes OK — well, it tastes like Tabasco, to be honest.”
Chef Nina also revealed that packing some high-protein nut products to munch on can satiate hunger longer than other options.
Anything from cashews to nut-packed bars should do the trick.
Other chefs recommend creating your own trail mix and adding a personal touch to it.
If you prefer a mix of sweet and savory treats, then mixing dried fruit, chocolate chips, seeds, and nuts will provide you with plenty of sugar and protein for nutrition.
Other travel hacks include take an empty water bottle to refuel at a water station after the security check.
