Bailey’s menu items will be served starting this week on domestic flights departing from Atlanta that include hot meals in first class, and will be an option for business class customers on international flights from Atlanta who pre-select their meals.
“At The Grey, we work to keep Southern, African-American food alive and well by melding those rich flavors with new techniques and cuisines from around the world,” Bailey said in a written statement. She said the Delta menu “takes local, in-season ingredients from the Low Country to new heights.”
Bailey also teaches a 10-lesson class on cooking Southern food on MasterClass, which is shown on Delta seatback televisions through a partnership with the online class service.
Delta has partnered with a number of local chefs and restaurants for in-flight meals in recent years, including Atlanta chef Linton Hopkins known for Holeman and Finch and other restaurants. Other featured restaurants have included Antico Pizza, Fox Bros Bar-B-Q and Buford Highway restaurant Woo Nam Jeong Stone Bowl House.
