 Have you counted how many servings in a 40# case? Curious. I won't buy wings until this summer at the camp.
According to his profile, he was last on-line on 1/31/2014. The 1993 edition is found on the UK Ministry of Defense website at http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20121026065214/www.mod.uk/DefenceInternet/MicroSite/DES/OurPublications/CateringPublications/Jsp404ManualOfCateringServices.htm. I've also seen a couple paper copies for sale on eBay.com and eBay.co.uk websites.
This is a 5-year old thread and Pete is no longer with us. You can find the current downloadable PDF version on the British Army website.
Where does this idea come from? I looked at the senior nutrition website and menu for my county (El Dorado Co., Calif.). The meals are delivered hot, not frozen. While they may not compare to restaurant quality, the menu looks okay. I may even drop in one of the centers myself. Locally, the county only delivers to those who are "medically or physically disabled, 60 years of age or older."

Why not post some of your photographic work?
Contact one of the personal chef associations for assistance (http://www.personalchef.com/ or http://uspca.com/). @chefbuba is right.

I lead by example and do not swear myself. Rarely can you catch me use swear words. As a result, most of my summer staff withhold swear words around me. Yes, I hear 'F' bombs on occasion, but as a rule we run a clean kitchen (double meaning!).
Then why not cut your losses right now and get a kitchen job? I don't think you're obligated to take the 15-16 money even though you're completed the FAFSA process for the school year. While you're gaining experience in a commercial kitchen, re-evaluate your future, including a community college culinary program. It's never too late to (partially) reverse the effect of rash decisions.
