Delta’s chef Hopkins teams up with Michelin-starred chef for Chelsea game day menu
Delta’s award winning culinary partner, chef Linton Hopkins, has joined forces in London with Michelin-starred U.K. chef James Lowe to create an exclusive matchday menu for club box guests at Chelsea Football Club, of which Delta is the Official Airline Partner.
The menu is a celebration of the best of British and American flavors with ingredients focusing on winter favorites, such as roast pumpkin and venison. The two chefs visited Chelsea’s suppliers in the south of England to personally source each item to create the dishes.
“Running an airline or running a restaurant is the same business – it’s about creating appetizing dishes to tempt the palate,” said Atlanta-based Hopkins. “I love to travel and explore different cultures. We should embrace that so I wanted to utilize produce that reflected what was seasonal and local here in England. I am a huge Chelsea fan and this partnership allows me to bring all of my passions together.”
