  1. often fall into the army professional chefs who have worked to the army in good restaurants. usually they are the same and cooks in the army. so in some military units are fed quite well.

    • Me, too! That salad looks really good, too.

      Where I lived before, there was a bread-bakery owned by some people from eastern Europe, maybe Serbia or Ukraine, I forget. It drove me crazy, because the baking breads smelled so good. I ate a lot of their bread, LOL. The old phrase “you can’t live only with bread and water” obviously never ate there!

  2. Interesting. US military cooks can get opportunities to train at hotels and civilian culinary training institutions.

  3. It was likely a typo. Considering that it generally takes bread at 240 Celsius to bake well for an hour. The fact that it’s a golden brown only demonstrates that it was a higher temperature.

    Anyway, I’m surprised that they use such small conventional fish cans, you’d think that they would be using the biggest ones on the market. Than again, the armed forces don’t shop at Costco.

  4. Is that really a Major General in charge if a military school? In the West a school commandant would be a Lieutenant Colonel, Colonel at the most.
