There's something about sailing the ocean blue that whips up a hearty appetite. Good food--and plenty of it--makes for a successful and pleasurable cruise. Whether your shipboard facilities include a fully equipped modern galley or just a primitive one-burner stove, satisfy your hungry sailors with memorable meals. From Chapman, the most trusted boat experts, here are smart strategies for overcoming the limits of a seagoing kitchen plus a whole host of recipes that will gratify everyone and leave you with plenty of time to enjoy yourself, too. Some dishes can be prepared at home and reheated; others feature fresh ingredients that you can easily throw together on board; and still more rely on packaged ingredients--a perfect solution for a long cruise.
Start with basics to build on--sauces and marinades, mixes for pancakes and cornbread, condiments and other embellishments. Put together a meal from individual recipes (like Homestyle Chicken Stew, Captain's Corned Beef Hash, Barbecued Shrimp Kebabs, Chef's Salad, Spicy Spinach, Provencal Potatoes, Cherry-Chocolate Brownies), or follow the complete menus, with shopping lists included. Every page has hints to ease your way. Bon voyage--and bon appetit!
