Charlie Trotter on United
This was a nice change. Today's menu on United was designed by Charlie Trotter, and I liked every bit of it. The duck leg confit and soba noodle salad was refreshingly light yet tasty thanks to the ginger-soy-hijiki concoction on the side, while the herb-rubbed chicken breast was tender and played a suitable role against the richness of the morel risotto as well as the tartness of the olive-caper sauce. I'm really liking this celebrity chef thing on airlines; I liked this meal so much that it has easily motivated me to go try his proper restaurants next time I'm in Chicago.
