As the world’s first and only professor of travel catering, endowed by the International Travel Catering Association, I still take an interest in this sector – even though it’s nearly five years since I served in this role. Throughout my time as the ITCA Chair, the Austrian-based flight caterer DO&CO were particularly supportive. So I was interested to see this video about how Turkish Airlines train their onboard chefs – since DO&CO are this airline’s caterers. As well as the training insight, the video also takes you back-of-house to their flight kitchen. [By the way, it would be easy from this to think that inflight “catering” is all about food production. It’s not. Operators themselves say it’s 80% logistics and 20% catering. Which is why DHL set up a flight catering unit at Heathrow a few years ago].
