James Beard was a pioneer in the world of American restaurants and cooking – he helped to lay the foundation for what we now know as the local foodie movement. Emphasizing local products and fresh ingredients, part of his mission as a food connoisseur, according to author David Kamp, was “to defend the pleasure of real cooking and fresh ingredients against the assault of the Jell-O-mold people and the domestic scientists”.
Beard’s food philosophy resonates deeply with us at Flight 112. We believe in wholesome American food done right, using quality ingredients that are made from scratch. Modern American food, not fussy, but delicious and satisfying; quality foods that combine in harmony.
Did you know that we make everything from scratch on our menu? Even our ketchup is handcrafted from scratch. No crazy ingredients – just local, slow food at its best!
