In B & E’s tiny galley kitchen I cooked pea soup on a temperamental electric hob. B was so keen to try the green boiling concoction that he drank some straight from the pan. It was a miracle that he did not scald his insides.
If making soup in such a confined space was difficult, washing up would be almost impossible. My first priority would be to establish whether we should work at the sink from left to right, or from right to left .
