NAVSUP’s exhibit featured five daily cooking demonstrations by Navy Culinary Specialists (CSs), and highlighted the Navy Exchange, including a peek at new enlisted uniforms, including coveralls.
“The men and women of the Navy Exchange Service Command are NAVSUP’s quality-of-life experts. Their mission is to provide authorized customers with quality goods and services at a savings and to support quality-of-life programs for active duty military, retirees, reservists and their families,” said Rear Adm. Jonathan A. Yuen, commander, NAVSUP. “The Navy Exchange Service Command’s uniform program ensures that our service members are outfitted with the proper uniform items for the best value.”
CSs demonstrated their skills and talents cooking dishes such as pan seared salmon with root vegetables; crepes con queso; and Thai red curry shrimp. Recipe cards were available for dishes being prepared.
“Nothing impacts Sailors on a day-to-day basis more than the food they eat. Cutting edge training, along with mentoring by senior enlisted food service leadership, ensures that our culinary specialists have the tools they need to prepare nutritious meals that keep our Sailors healthy and happy,” Yuen said.
