Our Galley

Our Galley
Cooking on a boat should be fun. It is slightly, no, a lot different to cooking in your stable kitchen. Not always is the sea all turquoise water and postcard calm. Pots and pans love to skim off benches, the oven, if not secured correctly, loves to open by itself and throw your latest creation across the galley floor. Living onboard is so much simpler and easier with little imagination and a relaxed approach. This will get the best out of your galley and you. I just love cooking seafood that we catch and fresh produce we gather onboard "Our Dreamtime" during our travels. You will find my recipes easy to follow and they won't take a lot of time to prepare in your galley afloat or kitchen ashore. It’s all about leaving time to enjoy life! I used to mix all my own herbs and spices but no longer. Now my secret to quick and tasty gourmet meals is the YIAH range (Your Inspiration at Home). These are all-natural seasonings, spices, salts and other items inspired by ethnic regions and custom blended to make cooking fast, simple and healthy. Take a look at the YIAH page below for details. I hope you enjoy Our Galley.

Karen to pass on provisioning tips at W.W.S.A. Gathering on the Bay

Karen will be one of the presenters at the Women Who Sail Australia (WWSA)  2nd Annual "Gathering on the Bay" being held from March 31 to April 2 at Port Stevens. The subject of Karen's presentation is ‘Provisioning and Passage Meals’. She plans to demonstrate that sailing in remote areas does not have to equate to eating only bland meals by highlighting techniques and products she uses on our boat using bot fresh and non refrigerated ingredients. This will include having a tasting table where attendees can sample some of the dishes she will be speaking about.
Karen will also launch the first four of a series of e-books on the subject and recipes at the weekend long event. The event will be attended by 150 women from all over Australia. More details are available via the link HERE,
