If plane food is the thing you dread most about travel, then one celebrity's advice may be the secret you're looking for. 

In an interview with Bloomberg, celebrity British chef Jason Atherton shared a few thoughts on eating meals at 30,000 feet. 

"It was [Jude] Law who told me to always take Tabasco on a plane. Airplane food is always bland, so it's great to give it kick," Atherton said.

The legendary restaurateur said he was no fan of plane food and generally tries to avoid eating on aircraft period. 

"I can normally do it up to about 12 hours. If I go to Australia, I have to eat, obviously, because it's 24 hours on a plane for me."

"I just eat the protein, drowned in Tabasco, which tastes OK -well, it tastes of Tabasco to be honest."

Unfortunately if you don't like spice this probably isn't going to work too well - but otherwise, get that Tabasco on board and  you'll have all the flavour you need.
