The Bridge & Possibly Most Important Machine on Ship

Don't worry, the softee machine is not on the bridge....yesterday we were talking with the "camp boss" Alex who runs the galley, and asked him how he planned menus for eight weeks at sea, a full two-hour meal service every six hours that will, in every case, be breakfast for some, lunch for others, and supper for the rest.  He said that the first thing he does is find out where all the scientists/crew are from for that particular leg....Japan, Russia, Philippines, Germany, India, France, etc so he can plan traditional dishes from each of those countries.  A little bit of home after many weeks away from incredibly sweet and thoughtful.
