I have made plates varying from a burger to lobster tail during my training and while on the job. I also clean as I go and while helping other soldiers with food preparation, maintain a bright, happy atmosphere in the kitchen if it's under my leadership. During culinary training, I was assigned to be the Team Leader because of my grades and leadership capabilities. I communicate directions from our sergeant and make sure food is done correctly and the kitchen is cleaned correctly.
