First Class Cookbook

Ever like an airplane meal so much that you want to make it at home? Lucky for you, United Airlines just published a cookbook. The “Polaris Cookbook” offers more than 40 recipes created by the airline’s own executive chefs.
Not your Styrofoam cup of tea? Well, Polaris has been known for serving the best of the best food on board, and if you look at some of their recipes, it’s not your average bag of peanuts (think coconut soup with sambal oelek chicken).
The chefs at United aren’t the only ones featured in the book. According to The Los Angeles Times, chefs from The Trotter Project, a nonprofit organization that provides culinary and educational programs for students pursuing careers in the restaurant industry, also took part. And they are perhaps the best reason to purchase the book, because a portion of the proceeds from every sale will go back to the nonprofit.
This isn’t the first airline cookbook. Southwest Airlines put out its own cookbook in 2006 called “Feel the Spirit, Savor the Fare,” and Delta also published one back in 1987, which was compiled by its flight attendants.
So if you can’t afford first class, at least you can eat like you did!
