Capturing life at sea through engaging photographs, compelling stories, and authentic fisherman’s recipes, this characterful volume is a one-of-a-kind companion for all sea lovers with a sense of adventure and appetite.
Captain’s Dinner is a maritime journey of discovery through the world of fishing. What does it mean to be dependent on the vagaries of nature on a daily basis? What is it like to haul in fishing nets in rain and galeforce 8 wind? How do freshly caught breams, herring, etc. actually end up on deck by lunch break and on the plate by night? In search of answers, photographer Paul Pflüger braved the wind and weather to accompany 27 fishermen at work on European seas, observing their daily routine over several months. The result is a lively, intimate, and unadulterated logbook of fishing and life at sea.
The featured fishermen also share their own favorite, previously-unpublished seafood dishes, from fried onion herb herring to Irish surf & turf or cold smoked mullet. With more than 50 delicious, simple seafood recipes.

This handy pocket-sized reference book is packed with invaluable advice for feeding a hungry crew for a weekend, a week, a month or even a long-term cruise or ocean passage. A third of the book contains simple but delicious recipe ideas, but most of the book is packed with tips, tricks and guidance from someone who learnt all the secrets (and the pitfalls) during a 2-year cruise with only a single paraffin burner.
The book covers: cooking whilst underway; cooking in harbour; food storage tips; how to equip or modify the galley for weekend or long-term cruising; how to provision and plan for coastal cruises or ocean passages; preparing freshly caught fish; baking bread aboard; using a pressure cooker; speed cooking; different foods available in different climates; and much, much more.

An expert look at the drinking culture in key sailing spots around the world. The book is split into five regions: Atlantic, Med, Baltic, Pacific, and Caribbean, and author Fiona Sims encourages us to explore each region and discover what locals like to drink, how it's made, where to go to drink it, and what is best to eat with it. In doing so she uncovers distilleries, breweries and wineries all within a short taxi ride of the harbour and shows us how to make the most of traditional markets.
As well as giving us the insider knowledge on fabulous locations worldwide, The Boat Drinks Book gets in on the making too. Cocktail and drink recipes inspire us to whip up something delicious – using local liqueurs, wines, spirits and produce – to sip on deck at the end of a long day's cruising or exploring. There's even a scattering of recipes for ultimate boat nibbles, inspired by each region, from tapenade to salsa to stuffed piquillo peppers.

The OCC's 60th Anniversary Collection of Seafarers' Recipes is an ideal friend to take on that short or long cruise, whether you're a Cordon Bleu chef who's never cooked on a boat or a sailor who's never cooked at all.
Whether in distant lands where familiar ingredients are unavailable or in local harbours sharing potluck with fellow cruisers, this is a collection of over 250 recipes for cooking meals both underway and at anchor. They can, of course also all be done in a proper kitchen. Being 'boat recipes' they are by and large simple to cook, tasty, and nutritious.
An amazing resource that combines the experience and expertise of cooking onboard of some of the most adventurous souls on this earth, the members of the Ocean Cruising Club. To be a member, you have to have done at least a 1000-mile passage non-stop. That's a lot of miles at sea where things can get boisterous and crews need to be fed. There are tips for how to store the mega-fish you catch, how to translate measures between different countries, and what things are called in different parts of the world.
Suitable for vegetarians and non vegetarians, for 'eggs on toast' cooks and those with a bit more flair and skill, this is a cookbook to bring food, and friends, together.

Subtitled "Real food for Hungry Sailors", this new boat cook book is designed for anyone with a tiny galley kitchen and an appetite for fresh, gorgeous food. Packed with fabulous and easy rescipes all made with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of flavour.
The book starts with a chapter on setting up the galley, where space is at a premium, and everything has its place. A list of items that should be in your galley, from baking tins to weighing scales.. the joys of a pressure cooker, and the ingredients that should be in the locker, plus, a small section on wine at the back, and what to serve with what...
There are many delectable recipes included (80), and some favourites from famous chefs, and even more famous sailing legends ( including Sir Robin Knox-Johnston). All can be completed in 20-30 minutes and most are sufficient for four hungry sailors. (Although some are just based on couples). Ingredients are mostly available from supermarkets. In total there are 5 sections and a few indulgences...white truffle oil on popcorn to name just one.. Despite being an English published cookbook, with some particular English ingredients and tastes, the recipes here can be easily adapted to cater for New Zealand fish and local tastes. "Chilli Beef Noodles with broccoli and cashew nuts" sounds pretty good, as does "Grilled Lemony Chicken Breasts with Red Pepper and Pine Nut Couscous"..then again, toast with exotic toppings and a quick rum is always good!
Scattered throught this book are lots of hints, tips and bits of lore.
For the galley chef, the busy sailor or a shopping trip in harbour, this is a good little cookbook to pack.
