TOO many cooks spoil the broth in some
kitchens but not at the main galley of HMAS
Kuttabul, where Army and Navy cooks from
NUSHIP Canberra have been sharing their
recipes for success.
Kuttabul’ s chief chef, CPO Simon
Allanson, said the dozen Canberra cooks had
been a welcome addition to the Kuttabul cook-
“The Navy cooks have gelled as a team
with their Army counterparts, who have gained
invaluable experience cooking ‘Navy style’
meals,” he said.
“It’s been smooth sailing for the Army
cooks so far, as they have overcome a number
of new challenges, while managing to retain
their sense of humour.”
Some of Canberra’s luckier cooks also
enjoyed the opportunity to embark in the visit-
ing Spanish warship ESPS Cantabria where
they have been preparing meals and working as
Canberra’s catering officer, CPO Michael
Oleksyn, said the aim of putting his cooks to
work was to make them combine as a team and
be ready for work when Canberra starts her sea
trials later this year.
Canberra’s Navy cooks have played a key
role in helping the Army cooks come to terms
with the challenges of cooking at sea in the
confined space of a warship.
ABML-C Megan Busljeta said the first pri-
ority was teaching them to understand the Navy
lingo, but the biggest challenge would be the
16-hour days catering for the ship’s company
of 400 and the embarked forces of up to 1000
“We have different routines and we have
been teaching them the Navy way because it
works well in the confined space,” she said.
LSML-C Debbie Ridge said the Army
cooks were fitting in well.
“We’ve been put together here at Kuttabul to
bond as a team and to learn each other’s skills,
and it’s going really well,” she said.
Earlier this year, the cooks spent time learn-
ing their way around Canberra’s galley, which
provided an important insight into the confined
space of a warship – even one as huge as a
27,000 tonne LHD.
LS Ridge said the Navy cooks considered
Canberra’s galley to be large, while the Army
cooks who are used to field deployments,
thought it was small.
“Canberra will take a little bit of getting
used to, but we expect to hit the ground running
when she is ready because of our experiences
here,” she said.
For many Army cooks, the prospect of
cooking at sea in rough weather is intimidating,
but two have already had experience.
PTE Gavin Floyd found his sea legs when
he embarked in Cantabria for a month.
“The experience of cooking on a rolling
platform in rough weather at sea has made me
more aware of the challenges,” he said.
PTE Leisha Anderson acclimatised to work-
ing on board a ship while she was embarked in
“I thought I knew what to expect, but then I
went to sea with Ballarat and battled not only
sea-sickness but a rogue wave that tossed our
lunch across the mess deck,” she said.
She said the crew of Canberra could look
forward to her signature dish of beef stroganoff.
As an added bonus, this month the cooks
are scheduled to learn how to make gelato from
a commercial provider in Sydney.
