Inasmuch as the trending #10YearsChallenge is more or less for fun on social media, there’s also a motivation factor embedded therein.

A young Ghanaian man identified as Lartey Kwame has also joined the challenge and his story is highly inspirational.

He posted pics on Facebook which tells a story of how he transformed from a common houseboy (cook) into a well respected Ship Cook/Chief Cook.


Lartey Kwame is also the Chef/CEO at Vicjohnson foods and events.

Below are photos of his transformation:

The chief cook directs and participates in the preparation and serving of meals; determines timing and sequence of operations required to meet serving times; inspects galley and equipment for cleanliness; and oversees proper storage and preparation of food.

The cook may plan or assist in planning meals and taking inventory of stores and equipment.

A chief cook’s duties may overlap with those of the steward’s assistant, the chief steward, and other steward’s department crewmembers.

In the United States Merchant Marine, in order to be occupied as a chief cook a person has to have a Merchant Mariner’s Document issued by the United States Coast Guard.

Because of international conventions and agreements, all chief cooks who sail internationally are similarly documented by their respective countries.
