Always had great admiration for the Cook on the Marchon Trader in early 1964. I remember seeing about 4 or 5 large pans wedged on the galley stove with a small amount of soup in each one, so it didn't spill over. Also the Steward when serving, recommended I kept a firm hold of the soup dish and make sure it didn't come over the edge as it was very hot !!
