High Speed Cooking

Preparing food for large gatherings is always difficult, but B&O crews faced the added challenge of cramped quarters, rocking tables, and a kitchen that moved at speeds of 80-100mph. Just imagine preparing Thanksgiving dinner for countless travelers in a kitchen the size of a closet being shared by several cooks, much less carving a turkey! This is exactly what African American B&O Chefs had to do all along the B&O's line, often cooking as many as 450 meals on one train
