Front Line Catering Training For Trainee RAF Chefs

Posted on January 24, 2019

Trainee Royal Air Force chefs are getting their first taste of how to prepare meals for hundreds of personnel out on operations with 3 Mobile Catering Squadron (3MCS). Aircraftman Tom Couch, a trainee chef who is currently acting as the head chef says his team have “worked really well”: “So far so good,” he says. “Nobody’s died yet of the food so I think it’s all looking good. My teams worked really well today. We started work at nine o’clock, just after breakfast, and I think we’ve knocked up quite a lot”, he added.

The team from 3 Mobile Catering Squadron made a variety of dishes, such as pizza, curry, pie and fruit crumble, while also taking into account other dietary requirements which included providing vegetarian dishes in the form of a pizza. According to Warrant Officer Daz Rose, who is overseeing the training session, only 2% of people they cater for require a vegetarian or vegan dish alternative.

WO Rose says the team have been “fantastic” during the second phase of their deployed skills course: “They’ve survived, they’ve built, they’re cooking, they’re feeding and are in really good spirit.”
