Yesterday we mentioned the new Tom Kerridge designed menus which British Airways will be offering in all cabins on long-haul routes during August.  This is part of the #BA100 centenary events.

Someone posted the menu in the comments yesterday.  This is what you can expect:

First Class

  • Loch Fyne smoked salmon tartare with smoked mayonnaise, seeded cracker and quails egg
  • Fillet of halibut with roasted cucumber, girolle mushrooms, salad cream, accompanied by a classic Caesar Salad with sourdough croutons and pickled anchovies
  • Milk chocolate and amaretto tart with salted caramel and white chocolate sauce

Club World

  • Severn and Wye smoked salmon with asparagus and gribiche dressing
  • Roasted breast of corn-fed chicken with braised pearl barley risotto and wild garlic
  • Chocolate and amaretto tart with salted caramel sauce

World Traveller Plus

  • Salad Dorset Blue Vinny cheese, celery, grapes and sunflower seeds
  • Roasted breast of corn-fed chicken with braised pearl barley risotto and wild garlic
  • Chocolate and amaretto tart, coffee and mascarpone cream

World Traveller

  • Gourmet smoked chicken stew with a variety of summer vegetables (starter and dessert are unchanged)

Apparently this menu can be at least partially pre-ordered – ignore what BA told us.

  • BJ says:

    These menus don’t look particularly inspiring, nothing to single them out from the usual.

  • Ian says:

    you can definitely pre-order the CW Chicken dish, as I have done so for an upcoming flight.

    • BJ says:

      Interesting, I was not even sure that was new, thought I had seen it before. I’m wondering if they just attached his name to existing or slightly modified existing menu items.

      • Lady London says:

        Shurely not.

        • BJ says:

          Something and pearl barley risotto was on my CW menu last month, I clearly remember that much. Perhaps they did a trial run with the dishes on selected flights before launching next month.

    • James says:

      I too have pre-ordered this dish.

  • Jamie says:

    I’m flying F on BA273 on 25th August and the main F dish on the Tom Kerridge menu is able to be ordered in advance like normal.

    • Lyn says:

      Also available to pre-order for a flight on August 2nd (the halibut in First).

      • Lyn says:

        For clarification – it specifically mentions halibut with girolles and salad cream so sounds as if it must be this menu.

  • BJ says:

    OT: More bad press for Boeing and 737 Max

    OT – Capital On Tap card..

    I did my first points transfer yesterday from CoT to BAEC and was very impressed to see that the points went across instantly! Very handy.

    • Simon says:

      Were you entitled to the spend bonus and has that been applied?

      • Ian M says:

        Yes and yes 🙂

        • Simon Barlow says:

          Brilliant, thanks. Just did my own.

          Also, managed to use the card to pay my personal tax bill due this month, without a fee.

    • Rob says:

      Yes. Which leads you to wonder why no-one else, especially Amex, can do this.

  • @mkcol says:

    OT: posted on an old topic yesterday so perhaps overlooked.

    Any idea if the $200 for Intercontinental Ambassador is charged as an IHG transaction so worth using my IHG credit card, or just stick with Curve to avoid the FX fees?

    • Brian says:

      Presumably the extra points wouldn’t be worth enough to cover the fx fees in any case.

    • TGLoyalty says:

      Stick with Curve with IHG has the underlying card. No extra points but no FX fees either

    • That’s why we need to continue to lobby Rob to activate email notifications on comments made to our posts or other comments

  • Nothing palembo says:

    Virgin deals are a nothing. Recommend others don’t waste their time.

  • Amit says:

    Whats the veg options??

    • MKB says:

      I’d be amazed if there are any. BA have never given a damn about vegetarian or vegan passengers in any class. I’ve had better VLML economy meals on Turkish than some of the Club World / First VLML fare.

      The same is true of most Western airlines.
