Should be yes. On a spreadsheet the results are probably more impressive. Probably the same bean counters involved at Sky High Airlines (from those brilliant tv ads from Alaska Airlines back in the day).

Edit - isnt it the same dish as https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/33869949-post454.html
Not going to start a brawl about it but Im sure its burrata. When you cut open burrata its lumpy inside unlike more homogenous normal mozzarella. Coleslaw would have cabbage and carrots. This is all white and 100% dairy.

Let the beancounters compute that one on an excel spreadsheet.... the fuel saving these days by cutting the cutlery pack by 50% could be immense!

I think I might order the Kosher meal for my trip next week. Those dishes look absolutely awful.

What are peoples experiences with special meals in CW at the moment? Which are worth ordering to get a better quality option than the standard menu?

Child meal while relatively plain is as substantial as a regular meal (if not more so). Anything to get rid of that cauliflower dip thing passing itself off as an appetizer.

You have good eyes. 👏 I had to expand the picture, and now it absolutely looks like burrata. The curds appear lumpier, perhaps due to the image quality or magnification.

So …. after much debate upthread, do we now have firm consensus that the item in question is indeed burrata …… ? I think we need a clear ruling !

SQ promote Book the Cook, MH have Chef on Call.
BA could maybe innovate with Guess the Dish ….. 🤔

Burrata is a starter on the First menu, so theyve obviously got a job lot from somewhere

and appeared on the DEN-LHR return two weeks ago....a lot of it.

and i saw it on another recent CE flight so just presumed they found some excess burrata recently on the burrata exchange.
