Every year, the military services participate in a nutrition competition as part of the Joint Culinary Training Exercise at Fort Lee, Virginia. For the event, a two-person team prepares a four-course meal that doesn’t exceed 850 calories. Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Nathanael Dyjak is a culinary specialist. He was there to test his skills, learn from the masters, and take that knowledge back to the submarine on which he serves.
