Ex-pilot soars through new career offering delicious recipes
ACCOMPLISHED entrepreneur and Boeing 737 pilot Chantel Manning’s passion for food has lingered throughout her career, often experimenting in the kitchen with dinner party guests, her guinea pigs for new tastes and flavours. Manning’s career spans more than two decades with a successful stint in the fashion and in the financial services industries and more than a decade of flight. She flew for the UN in Afghanistan and Iraq after cutting her pilot’s teeth on contracts in Africa. In 2015 the Flying Cook became a reality as an insert on Mix 93.8FM with soaring popularity. In fact, her Flying Cook concept will be reprinted in the Saturday Star, as well as select editions of Independent Newspapers from this month. Her passion for food underpins a recent decision to swap pilot’s epaulettes for an apron, full time, and focus on life’s myriad flavours. Her first recipe is below.
