Two things come to mind when I view this photograph:
As the the Navy's sea going cooks and bakers, culinary specialists have to appreciate the support from the so-called mess cooks, or food service attendants. FSAs, like CTSN Hale, are junior enlisted men and women that are assigned to the galley for 90 days. They wash dishes, clean the galley and assist with basic food preparation tasks.
My second thought? What happens to those artfully arranged whisks and spoons when the Shiloh hits a wave?
YOKOSUKA, Japan (March 12, 2012) -- Cryptologic Technician (Technical) Seaman Jake Hale assists the culinary specialists in the galley aboard the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Shiloh (CG 67).
