A Royal Navy sailor who spiced up menus on patrol around the world has been named top chef in the armed forces.
Petty Officer Daryl Hall was awarded Armed Forces Caterer of the Year after he treated the 220-strong crew of HMS Richmond to fine dining and world cuisine despite the challenges of cooking and restocking a warship at sea during a 2015 deployment to the Gulf and Mediterranean.
The 30-year-old from Plymouth was nominated for his hard work during the ship's nine month deployment on on counter-drugs and counter-piracy operations.
He re-invented the ship's menu - introducing new tastes obtained during port visits - despite operating across four continents and in extreme conditions, including temperatures exceeding 50C.
This was a just reward for a thoroughly professional caterer who worked incredibly hard throughout Richmond’s nine-month deployment. It is good to see our highly trained Royal Navy caterers being recognised for their achievements.
When Daryl was not cooking up a storm in the kitchen, he also served as a member of the ship’s boarding team who were involved in the seizure of millions of pounds of illegal narcotics.
Daryl is now looking forward to his next appointment as a catering instructor at the Defence Maritime Logistics School at HMS Raleigh, Cornwall.

It's an amazing event and an amazing challenge to do, and one that will feel very worthwhile once you've done it."
