Question: Who did NASA reach out to for help in improving the menu on the International Space Station?
Answer: Celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse has contributed several recipes to the meal selection aboard the International Space Station, as part of a general NASA effort to improve the quality of the food supply for astronauts. Known for his mastery of Creole and Cajun cuisine, the New Orleans chef was specifically selected to help offset the reported tendency of microgravity to deaden flavors. Lagasse developed five recipes that the NASA kitchen then turned into freeze-dried packets, each about the size of a deck of cards. He is the first celebrity chef to have meals developed for NASA astronauts.
The answer is: Emeril Lagasse
