I haven't been the best "The Next Iron Chef" watcher, but I'll definitely be watching tonight's episode in which the four remaining contestants learn they're flying to Munich, Germany for the chance to create a signature menu for Lufthansa's First and Business class passengers.
The winner of The Next Iron Chef will be offered the chance to collaborate with Lufthansa and LSG Sky Chefs in creating a signature menu for the airline’s renowned “Star Chefs” premium dining program in 2008. Since its inception in 2000, the program has featured in-flight creations by such culinary luminaries as Thomas Keller (New York/Napa Valley, CA), Paul Bocuse (Lyon, France), Daniel Boloud (New York) and, David Bouley (New York), whose menu is currently being served in First and Business classes on Lufthansa flights departing to North America.
Fans of the show can log onto www.lufthansa.com now through November 4th to select the chef they think the judges will eliminate that week, and on November 11th, the chef they think will be the Next Iron Chef. Correct selections will be eligible for one of many giveaways, including a grand prize for a pair of Economy- Class tickets on Lufthansa to Europe; a $500 MasterCard gift card; Lufthansa and Food Network gear; and, more. See www.lufthansa.com for additional information and for full terms and conditions
I don't know about you, but I'm ready for airlines to actually start serving food again. I can only imagine how much better an 8- or 10-hour flight would be if it provided some decent dish.
Ahhh... one can dream. I don't think I'll be a First or Business class passenger on the Airbus A380 anytime soooooooon.
Oh, and if you couldn't tell...
