Passengers passing through Heathrow Airport are being encouraged to get involved in British Food Fortnight by being offered crumpets, fish and chips and pork pies.
More than 20 of the London airport’s eateries will be offering some of the nation’s most celebrated food to passengers between August 6th and September 12th in an attempt to boost the profile of domestic cuisine.
Among the participants is Terminal 5’s Gordon Ramsay Plane Food, which will be offering a limited edition three-course meal, with the likes of beetroot and English goat’s curd on the menu.
Heathrow spokesman Malcolm Robertson said the airport is "very happy" to be showcasing the best of British food.
"Our culinary heritage is something that we can feel justifiably proud of and as the global gateway of the UK, Heathrow is well placed to promote British food and culture to our international passengers," he commented.
Earlier this month, the UK’s busiest airport lent its backing to England’s bid to host the 2018 World Cup.
