Don't be a Galley (Kitchen) Slave

Posted Jun 24 2008 5:07pm
Hey! The following is a review of my newest cookbook, "One Pot Galley Gourmet," that was written by Tom Jerome, at Moonlight Mesa Associates। Personally,I LOVE this book and its recipes. I know, I know, you're thinking I should like it since I wrote it. You'll like it too! Guaranteed! There are some killer recipes in this book, and they are ALL easy-to-prepare and mostly one pot/pan meals. Nutritious and delicious to boot. Read on.

"One Pot Galley Gourmet," by Becky Coffield, is an irresistible cookbook specializing in easy-to-prepare, nutritious and delicious one pot meals। The book is intended for those who don’t have the time, or the inclination, to spend all day in the kitchen (or galley) preparing a meal.

The book offers informative, and often humorous, tidbits of information generously sprinkled throughout, as well as an engaging account of the origins of Mud Bottom Cake, a tantalizing chocolaty treat. Coffield also strongly encourages the use of natural/organic products. Valuable tips on canning fish and making soup stock from scratch are also included.

This collection contains an excellent selection of beef, fowl, fish, vegetarian and pork recipes। These meals range from the hearty yet simple, like Beef and Barley Mix and Burgundy Beans, to the elegant Lemon Chicken Linguini and (my personal favorite) Salmon Linguini. The ample recipes are easily halved or quartered for fewer servings. The book is not slanted towards fad diets or eating (low carb, low fat, high carb, etc.) Rather "One Pot Galley Gourmet" embraces healthful, wholesome, nutritional meals that are, by and large, EASY TO PREPARE.

For boaters, each recipe carries a notation as to whether the recipe is a STOVE TOP, OVEN, BARBECUE, or SHOREPOWER meal. In addition, most of the ingredients used store well with little or no refrigeration and are usually accessible in most ports in the world. Also, a collection of bread recipes are included for those who venture far from stores and bakeries.

Drawing largely on the author’s first cookbook, "You Can Conquer TMJ: Ideas and Recipes," which spent time considerable time addressing the issues of TMJD (temporomandibular jaw disorder) "One Pot Galley Gourmet" is a happy, fun read with more recipes, a half dozen or more bread baking recipes and easily concocted desserts. Coffield’s creations will not come close to the likes of t.v.’s popular personalities and their haute cuisine, but you won’t find an easier, more nutritious, entertaining cookbook on the market than "One Pot Galley Gourmet."

"One Pot Galley Gourmet" is distributed by Robert Hale & Co., and is currently available at Captain’s Nautical Supply,, and by mail order
