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.

Sundowners and Drinks

A perfect end to the day is with a glass of Champagne watching the sun go down across the water.
The last thing you want to be doing is slaving away in the galley making the perfect accompanying food. Let me show you some easy but mouthwatering recipes to make your sundowners perfect whether sharing a cockpit with friends or having a romantic night for two.

Enjoying Sundowners with old friends or new ones we've just made in a anchorage is one of our favourite aspects of the cruising life. Whether it's on our boat, someone else's or ashore on the beach, a nice plate of nibbles and a glass of the tipple of your choice provides an unbeatable social atmosphere. It is also nice to have a small plate of tantalising nibbles to go with your drinks.

A simple plate of Cheese, Marinated Olives and Chorizo

Popcorn Chicken Bites

You would normally find us with a wine in our hand but Karen likes to break out the cocktails on occasion.

Here's a couple she come up with on Our Dreamtime.

What about this great idea! We use these ice blocks to fill the freezer to ensure
a good temp is maintained. Now another use ... Just add Vodka ...
What flavour would yours be?
