I've just made the transition from a Stewardess on a large motor yacht working along side 3 other Stews to now a solo Stew position onboard a smaller yacht. As I am now solo I can't now rely on the other girls when I become stuck with something or need extra inspiration. So my question is. Does anyone know of any fantastic reference books/websites that a Stewardess can call upon for say inspirational table settlings, double checking correct service techniques and settings, laundry and really any great tips and ideas.

Probably deserving of it's own thread but of interest to you and other Chefs Ms Allman. Sotheby's will be hosting a "Books for Cooks" auction of precious books and manuscripts dating back as far as the 16th century on July 15th. The items up for bid can be viewed through their online e-catalog.

Thank you for the link.  I was just reading about it on Epicurious.  How fun!  I'll feel like an owner bidding on a Sotheby's auction.

You're welcome. If this is your first Sotheby's auction you are in for a treat. If you cannot attend the exhibitions be sure and order the catalog about a month before the auction. They are collectors items themselves and a wealth of photos and information.
