      Very informative read

      I especially liked the storage ideas for items that don’t need refrigeration. Frees up lots of space

      This module is just the ticket for offering up an excellent overview of the subject. Great insight and some surprising items as well. Thanks for a great product.

      Loved this course. As we are moving aboard and I’m cleaning my galley, I was starting to fret over how to keep food in my 40 qt fridge. The ebook is great for offline viewing and referring to when needed, or just a reminder.
