The Cabin Pressure Cook Off: Delta in search of the top epicurean talent


Delta Air Lines is launching a competitive culinary show. Delta and FOOD & WINE, America’s talent-seeking epicurean magazine, created a culinary competition video series, called “The Cabin Pressure Cook Off,” to find Delta’s newest chef. The winning chef will consult with Delta on menus for flights departing Atlanta.

Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of FOOD & WINE’s Best New Chefs awards platform, the four-episode series will launch in October. The new chef will join Delta’s culinary team which includes Michelle Bernstein, Michael Chiarello, and master sommelier Andrea Robinson.

The Cabin Pressure Cook Off will feature culinary challenges and will be filmed at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York. Television personality Jackie Tranchida will serve as the host, and judges include Delta Consulting Chef Michelle Bernstein, Master Sommelier for Delta Andrea Robinson, Union Square Hospitality Executives, David Swinghamer and Mark Maynard and FOOD & WINE Publisher Christina Grdovic.
