Pro beauty tips for easy travel

Long waits at the airport, dry airplane air, sleep and healthy-food deprivation'they've all made air travel a real beauty challenge. Here are frequent fliers' tips for looking (and feeling) fresh on arrival

Herbed Polenta with Gorgonzola

Broiled slices of herbed polenta topped with a creamy, melting mixture of Gorgonzola and ricotta cheeses is a delicious dish, ideal for a tempting starter. It is served hot with a garnish of salad greens.
