Every year, Emirates makes more than 110 million meals to serve to passengers in the sky.

And, with most of the Dubai airline's flights on hold for the moment, chefs at Emirates have been keeping themselves busy compiling some of their favourite in-flight recipes for people to try to recreate at home.

Saud Al Matrooshi, the first Emirati chef at Emirates, has shared some of the Arabic fare typically served by Emirates at 38,000 feet in a new YouTube video.

If you're looking for something to keep you busy in the kitchen while you're staying home during the coronavirus pandemic, the chef has plenty of recipes for viewers to try.

“Now that everyone is mostly home and looking for some pointers on what to whip up for dinner, we decided to share the recipes from some of our signature dishes,” said Darren Bott, vice president of catering – global food and beverage at Emirates.

There's a lot more than the simple chicken or beef choice typically offered on flights, Emirates' Emirati chef talks viewers through nine different recipes.

Expect dishes such as prawn machboos, lamb kofta, chicken bzar, fish salounah and a classic Arabic mezze.

All of the recipes are taken from Emirates's repertoire of more than 12,450 international dishes that are typically served on flights across the airline's network.
