There is no questioning that Gordon Ramsay knows he’s way around a kitchen, he is one of the most well known chefs in the world after all!
Ramsay has of course got around in his time, trying different types of food in a variety of different places.
But to travel between all of these places, Ramsay most often uses a plane to move from country to country.
And that is exactly where the Brit will not entertain the idea of any food, as he quite frankly can’t stand it.
I think we all know that food served on a flight is never the best, with some even comparing it to hospital food in some cases.
But many online have expressed an improvement in plane food in recent years, though obviously not enough for Ramsay to take the plunge.
Speaking to Refinery 29 back in 2017, the chef said: “There’s no f***ing way I eat on planes. I worked for airlines for ten years, so I know where this food’s been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got on board.”
As a result, Ramsay never goes onto a flight with an empty stomach, and he encouraged other regular flyers to do the same.
But in the same interview, the 57-year-old admitted he does ‘keep it light’ at the airport terminal, usually deciding to dine at an Italian bar if it’s present.
“A nice selection of Italian meats, a little glass of red wine, some sliced apples or pears with some parmesan cheese, I’m like a pig in s**t,” Ramsay told the outlet.
Ramsay actually has one of his own restaurants in an airport, with Plane Food located at terminal five in London’s Heathrow Airport.
Plane Food was created specially for passengers to use at the airport, with Ramsay explaining why in a YouTube video.
He said: “The idea behind Plane Food is simple: I’d like you to eat incredibly well before takeoff.”
Ramsay went on to say the restaurant was designed for a quick meal, something you certainly want at an airport before boarding your flight.
