    British Airways takes flavours to new heights:)

    British Airways (BA) introduced in June a new “Height Cuisine” menu on its business and first class services, designed to maximise the taste of its dishes at altitude by using recipes that are naturally high in umami. This savoury flavour is considered the “fifth taste” – after sweet, sour, salt and bitter – detectable by the human palate.

    This comes as a result of a TV show, Heston’s Mission Impossible, broadcast earlier this year in the UK, in which BA challenged celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal to create the ultimate in-flight meal.
