|224k||Chefs de Cuisine and the galley -- this seems almost like an oxymoron. But through the steps taken by the Navy this is becoming reality.|
Recently during the week of 9 January 2004. Chef Trevor Hamilton has volunteered to help the Culinary Specialists (CS) aboard Cheyenne (SSN-773) 'tighten up' their meals.
Hamilton, a native of Ontario, Canada, has been a chef for 26 years. This year he is spending 26 days giving a helping hand to Navy cooks. He has been onboard Bremerton (SSN-698), Lake Erie (CG-70) and is currently on board Cheyenne.
As a part of the Commander Submarine Force U.S. Pacific Fleet's (COMSUBPAC) sponsored 'Adopt-a-Ship' program, he has been sharing his skills with Sailors since 1999. COMSUBPAC's Force Culinary Specialist, Senior Chief Joseph Demeule handles the paperwork to have Hamilton sponsored every year.
'Hamilton has done a phenomenal job. The CSs get first hand industry knowledge. They learn more in a day with a professional chef than they do in a two week class,' said Demeule.
During Hamilton's five years of voluntary service he has spent 122 days at sea, with seven of those days underway on board a submarine.
'I came to volunteer my time to the cooks in the fleet,' said Hamilton. 'I want to show them the difference between fleet and civilian cooking venues. However, I am not here to teach them how to cook. I am here just to show them different ways of improving recipes.'
The CSs on board Cheyenne took advantage of having Hamilton onboard and decided to cook up some new ideas. 'Chef Trevor gave us a lot of insight and suggestions. He helped us learn how to spice up the meals,' said Culinary Specialist 3rd Class Wesley Clark.
