A good cook always tastes the soup
U.S. Army Reserve Spc. Jamal Sims, a culinary specialist assigned to the 1002nd Quartermaster Company in Beaumont, Texas, takes a sample of beef barley soup during the Philip A. Connelly cooking competition held at Fort Polk, Louisiana, March 25, 2017. During the Philip A. Connelly Program, the U.S. Army Reserve partners with the National Restaurant Association to give food service personnel an opportunity to demonstrate their capability and combat-readiness while competing for recognition.
