James Barber--Canada's most famous television chef and author
of more than fourteen best-selling cookbooks--is back with a
delicious new book geared toward people who are wet and cold and want dinner in a hurry.
Over the years, Barber has whipped up meals while cruising on seiners, yachts and even a wee Davidson dinghy, so he knows first-hand the challenges of cooking on the ocean in a tiny--or non-existent--galley. One-Pot Wonders makes gourmet cuisine accessible to the average cook, featuring over one hundred simple recipes for mouth-watering soups and salads, hearty breakfasts, delectable desserts and exquisite one-pot main dishes that can be served for lunch or dinner. Each dish is easy and quick to prepare, uses readily available ingredients and only a few essential kitchen tools. There are also tips on how to stock your galley and many suggestions for recipe substitutions and variations to address diminishing supplies--a common occurrence at the end of a long trip.
From Georgian Salmon Stew to Sweet Pear Omelette to Shrimp and Cucumber Curry, these recipes will buoy your spirits and keep you afloat! So come aboard: let James Barber share his passion for good food and inspire you to enjoy a fine meal after a long day out on the water.
