The fourth cook was at the bottom of the job ladder. Every evening, he would squeeze oranges from a double box of the fruit. This was necessary in order to have fresh juice for breakfast. At the time, all food must be fresh. Thus, there could be no canned goods used. In the morning following his first time in accomplishing of this task, his boss asked him if he had completed the job. When Peter stated that he did, his boss wanted to know if he had locked the refrigerator. He did not know that he should. He was advised that he should purchase a lock and be sure that the compartment was locked each night. Apparently, the waiters would raid the refrigerator, looking for food and juice.
He would sit on a little box in a corner and peel a bag of potatoes, all the time hoping to see the last one in the bag. He had to cut bread at night since sliced bread was not available. When finished, he would place the slices inside a dark cloth, where they would remain fresh ready for toasting in the morning. Since there was not an electric toaster, he had to bank the coal stove at night so that there would be hot coals in the morning. When it was time to prepare the toast, he would place the slices of bread onto a rack and heat them over the coals. He had to make homemade ice-cream, as well. Then, there was the usual kitchen job of washing dishes, pots, and pans all by himself.
