Chicken in XO sauce is a hardy perennial. It's what I'd usually go for - it's reliable and does what it says on the tin.

The second starter sounds interesting... as someone who lives in cheltenham, I have never heard of “Cheltenham beetroot”. If you do get a chance to try it out, let me know how it is :-)

Salad

  • Mixed salad leaves with cherry tomato, cucumber and parmesan

How do you get these Menu listings? All I have is the Select your Main! Or am I being attacked by ba.com?

Or is ex-LGW to CPT too nasty to include in the process?

In MMB / Order In-Flight meals / Choose your meal and just above the list of main course there should be a hyperlink View Menu.

I'd had the same issue since last Wednesday, luckily it all worked today! Although my wife is in a state of shock that one of the options involves smoked mash :-)
