Randy Turner is the LSSL Chief Cook, and he and his crew in the Logistics department are responsible for the care and comfort of everyone on board. Randy learned to cook at home-- his parents worked so he and his brother chose home chores that suited them. After years in the hotel and restaurant business, he came to the Coast Guard because of the freedom. Here he can invent menus, experiment with tastes combinations and play in the kitchen. And cook he does. Randy has the confidence of the seasoned chef saying that he can make a meal out of anything. He also takes his responsibility for our care seriously: to many of his dishes he adds ginger for digestion and garlic for the heart, and works hard to make his food visually appealing. Linda Campbell says she is looking towards retiring, but you would never know that. This morning she made strawberry shortcake, 3 pies and rolls for supper.
This evening we were treated to a BBQ in the helicopter hanger.
Thank you to the Galley for a yummy and relaxing meal. It was a very nice change of pace. THANK YOU MUM!
