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.


Like all the recipes posted in this blog, every one of these dishes have been prepared by Karen in the galley on board 'Our Dreamtime'. Living on the hook or in a marina doesn't mean you can't eat great meals.

Along with seafood, we find poultry one of the things we eat most on the boat. Apart from the fish we might catch for free, both can be found reasonably priced and are healthy choices for us. Chicken and duck also lend themselves to endless possibilities in the galley.

Karen has developed a great range of recipes to ensure we never tire of eating the healthy protein that poultry provides. She will soon be publishing another volume of the Our Galley e-book series containing a huge range of her poultry recipes. Meanwhile scroll down to see some of her suggestions.
