For anyone with a tiny galley kitchen and an appetite for fresh, gorgeous food, there's good news: it's all here! These fabulous and easy recipes, all made with minimum fuss and maximum flavour, will allow you to spoil yourself in harbour, keep things simple at sea, and make delicious meals and snacks in advance – not to mention rustle up a mean rum punch. Taking no longer than 20–30 minutes and using a maximum of two pans, you'll find yourself cooking up a storm, with your hungry crew tucking into crab macaroni cheese, lamb with sumac and butter bean mash, cherry clafoutis, and chocolate fruitcake. With its handy ideas on setting up the galley, tips on hosting the perfect beach barbecue and fascinating nautical trivia scattered about, this is the must-have guide for sailors and seaside-lovers alike.
In this brand new edition, Fiona Sims shares her own tried-and-tested onboard classics, along with recipe contributions from top chefs (Chris Galvin, Angela Hartnett, Kevin Mangeolles, Ed Wilson and Judy Joo) and sailing legends (Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, Mike Golding, Brian Thompson, Shirley Robertson and Dee Caffari). With a foreword by Chris Galvin, and accompanied by wonderful photography and beautiful hand-drawn illustrations, this continues to be an invaluable addition to the food lover's kitchen or galley.
Inspired by the sea and happy times on the water, The Boat Cookbook promises fresh, mouthwatering galley grub that can be prepared almost as quickly as it will be devoured by your eager crew.
About the Author
Fiona Sims has written for The Times, Delicious, Decanter, Food & Travel, and more. The food, wine and travel writer has interviewed many of the world's top chefs, including Alain Ducasse, Gordon Ramsay and Rene Redzepi, and travels the world regularly visiting wine regions and exploring local cuisines. The idea for this book came after much nagging from her sailing-mad Dad, who kept losing her scribbled-down recipes for on board cooking in his rather basic galley. She and her husband Mark split their time between London and Yarmouth, and she sails regularly from the south coast with her Dad on his 29ft Westerly, always cooking on board. She is also the author of The Boat Drinks Book, published by Bloomsbury.
