Day 10 - Torta Day
The galley and its crew on the Alliance are legendary. The Italian cooks prepare wonderful fresh focaccia in the morning and fantastic Italian meals to suit everyone’s tastes for the other two meals of the day. The stewards always greet us warmly with a big smile and ensure we want for nothing, including translations of the menu. One would think that is more than enough to keep the entire crew happy, and it really is…
… but the cooks go one step further on Thursdays and Sundays – Torta (Cake) Days. At 15:00 on these days, the laboratory empties as everyone migrates to the mess room for a special treat. Fruit torta, more traditional cake with frosting, or cannoli, everyone knows that a special treat awaits them on CAKE DAY!!!
