Synopses & Reviews
Here's a book to hurl at the culinary barbarian on your crew, though it's a lot more than a simple defense against digestion...John Payne, who writes with wit and clarity, makes the business of learning to be a good sea cook much more entertaining than it might otherwise be...All in all, this is an excellent guide to the task of providing good food afloat. Payne includes a lot of basic-but-need-to-know stuff, like: what kind of fruits and vegetables keep and how long, how to (really!) catch fish, galley equipment, safety, on board gardening (sprouting), and hundreds of really excellent recipes.
