We're packing for a flight tomorrow, and of course that packing includes a snack to make the hours in the air more palatable. Inspired by Saveur's March theme of butter, we washed some radishes, spooned some artisanal butter into a disposable container, and bagged up a bit of sea salt.
Tomorrow, just when the flight seems intolerable, we'll take a bite of peppery radish, slather on some cooling butter and add a little extra crunch with the salt.
But this easy snack isn't limited to the air. It's an appetizer we employ when casual company comes to dinner. Paired with slices of good bread, these simple items become an interactive treat our guests can assemble themselves.
• Here are some more ideas for in-flight dining DIY-style. What's your favorite snack to take flying?
