24 Hours as a Navy Ship Line Cook - A Frank Experience

  • Published on: 02 July 2019
  • Welcome to A Frank Experience, where Frank Pinello of 'The Pizza Show' explores large-scale dining experiences and delves into what exactly it takes to feed a ton of people.

    In this episode, Frank celebrates Fleet Week with the Navy on the USS New York. Frank takes a chopper to the ship to see where they keep the thousands of pounds of food needed to feed the sailors and to do his best grilling catfish, slicing prime rib, manning the egg station, and cooking burgers. By the time the ship passes the Statue of Liberty and Freedom Tower on the way back to New York City, Frank has a new level of perspective.

    So they can cook eggs to order, but not burgers? That is just strange to me, if you've got a beautiful flattop like that there's no need to parcook burgers, just use smaller patties so they cook faster.

    I am a huge fan of military chefs and cooks.. If i may ask candidly if it were up to you guys what can the military do to help make the job more desirable.. More help? shorter shifts? It seems like maybe both but i wonder what else
