Kitchen, cook house, galley, mess, canteen are all names for the workshop the cook works in. This one is mine. Many a delious meal has been constructed here by others as well as myself. I can cook. I am not a chef but I can cook for one or twenty, I can make it taste good and I can do it everyday. Some of the others that have cooked here make me look like a grunting savage gnawing a bone
I have kneaded bread in it, made ice cream, made hot soup and turned things I didn't want to eat into juice. I have to admit I didn't move it far as it went into SWMBO's kitchen. I thought she would complain about it but she has actually used it. It freed up space I have not yet used.
While removing things for cleaning I found a tin of loose Earl Grey tea I didn't know I had. I've just finished a cup. How sweet it is.
Sounds like me cooking with my hot pan technique. My motto is "cooking over a low fire is for cowards and wimps". My favorite method is a cast iron skillet over a flame just below hot enough to melt the skillet. I love the flame, the smoke and the flying sparks. The fire trucks, fire axes and all that water(?) not so much. No curtains in the kitchen and no paper products near the stove when I cook. If a pot holder is not charred then I have not used it yet. SWMBO is appalled.
