The Galley

My friends and family know that I love to cook and I’m known for being a bit of a gourmet on our wilderness camping trips. I’m hoping that my experience will help when dealing with the tiny galley on our sailboat. Many people might be intimidated by the thought of cooking and baking on a two-burner alcohol stove and only having an icebox, but not me. Bring it on, I say!

I’ll be posting tips, techniques, galley related gear reviews, food reviews, and recipes on the blog and will have a full index on this page as well.  Also, if you have any sailboat-friendly recipes you would like to share, please email me via

Bon Appétit!

PS If you happen to have an Optimus 45 backpacking stove with the longer neck that you want to part with I’m looking for one.
