Can Reality Show Chefs Make You Want to Eat at London's Heathrow Airport?

A pair of foodies is looking to improve the airport eating experience, as they’re being set on the loose over at London-Heathrow airport. John Torode and Gregg Wallace from the BBC show Masterchef are taking on a six-month culinary challenge at the airport, and when they’re done the plan is to make the airside offerings just a little bit better.

It sounds as if the pair has wrangled an all-access pass to the airport when it comes to checking out the dining establishments, from the kitchens, and prep areas to the dining rooms and everything in between for the 70 spots spread across LHR.

When it’s all said and done, the main mission here is to ensure that there are a few more healthy options. To pass along their newfound knowledge they’re publishing a new food digest—Food on the Fly. It will work as a guide to what’s good and what’s even better across the airport this July, as officials hand it out to hungry passengers.

Plane ticket or no, anyone will be able to browse the publication as Heathrow also plans to have it available for download.

It still remains to be seen if the upgrade in food means the arrival of a substantial English breakfast for less than 15 GBP, but we digress.
