The galleys, on QE2's latest version have always intrigued me. Don't forget I left  Christmas '88. Most of the things like the bain maries, for keeping food warm were steam heated. "Proofing" for bread....steam for doing boiled potatoes....steam, cooking lobsters and soups and rice ....steam.
I know that the present day food service is nowhere near as big as "old times" and a lot of this stuff could be done stove top as being permanently moored, you would not have to worry so much about spillage.
Any thoughts/info on that Luis?
