Martha Stewart, Space Caterer
If you are rich, and we mean really rich, not only do you get to be one of the first people to be a space tourist, you can get Martha Stewart to cater your space meal. CNet reports that Charles Simonyi, a software pioneer who will be the fifth tourist in space, is a friend of Stewart's and he has convinced her to create a gourmet menu to feed the crew at the International Space Station. The space food is a far cry from Tang and freeze-dried ice cream. The menu includes roasted quail, duck breast confit with capers, shredded chicken parmentier, apple fondant pieces, rice pudding with candied fruit, and semolina cake with dried apricots. Simonyi will take the meal up to the International Space Station aboard the Russian Soyuz TMA spacecraft on April 7 and the food will be prepared by Alain Ducasse's consulting and training center, ADF.
