June Giveaway - Boat Galley Cookbooks

At Cruisers Forum we are pleased to offer our members a Monthly Vendor Giveaway Prize, which we hope will help our members learn about the sponsors who support our community. Our goal is to create ways for our members to engage with our sponsors, earning a chance to win a prize donated by the sponsor. We feel this will provide the sponsor a unique opportunity to embrace our laser focused audience and provide our amazing members an easy and free way to win some gear!

A special thanks to The Boat Galley for providing the prize for our June Giveaway, FREE Boat Galley Cookbooks with a value of $36 each for ten lucky winners ($ 360 total value).

Sponsor Information:
The Boat Galley Cookbook is the one comprehensive galley guide needed on every boat, whether for a weekend sail or a cruise around the world:
  • 800+ recipes made from readily-obtainable ingredients with hand utensils, including numerous choices to suit every taste: not just one cake but 15, 19 ways to prepare fish, 9 regional barbeque sauces, and so on.
  • Step-by-step directions to give even “non-cooks” the confidence they can turn out tasty meals without prepared foods.
  • Detailed instructions on unfamiliar things like making yogurt and bread, grilling virtually every food imaginable, preparing and cooking freshly-caught fish and seafood, cutting up and boning meat, cooking in a Thermos and baking on the stove top, as well as lots of tips on how to do things more easily in a tiny, moving kitchen.
  • All this in an easy-to-navigate format including side tabs on the Contents to help you find your way and extensive cross reference lists at the end of each chapter.

Thanks, I enjoyed this read, and I think I must have come across it before since we now organise all our dried goods into small 1l or large 5l ice cream containers, which HWMO has been obligingly ploughing through ready for the moment we cast off!

Another one I must have read and paid attention to is this one: How to Store Dry Dog Food on a Boat since we have all our kibble stored in 5l containers under the quarterberth

Thanks for this Carolyn... I love your website and can't wait to read your book (inshallah!)!

Re: June Giveaway - Boat Galley Cookbooks

I need a few of these. Cockpit Light or Night Light I love candles on the boat but hate the black soot above them and the fire hazard. I am on the lookout for some nice LED candles and these look good. thanks

Need a Pizza Cutter? Sissors? great idea, gonna try next time I make Pizza. Thanks

Stove Top Baking looks like an interesting way to bake

Are Rusty Cans Safe to Eat From? Rusty tins? always wondered if I could eat from them.

Storing Food on a Boat All about storage. being messy I'm gonna need to read all this thread!

Really interesting site, if the cookbook is anywhere near as good I'll need to get a copy for Kaz (the girl with every cookbook) Cheers

Re: June Giveaway - Boat Galley Cookbooks

Reading a lot about fires lately and it really seems like the Fire Blanket is a no-brainer. We can all find/create a small spot in nearby accessible stowage for something like this.

Re: June Giveaway - Boat Galley Cookbooks

Hi fellow cruisers;
Fantastic chance to win a copy of the BEST cruising cookbook ever! It's awful hard to choose a favorite article, but the one that really impressed me was the use of baking stones in the oven! How to Use a Baking Stone . I used two medium sized Pampered Chef shallow stone trays and they fit great. No more hot spots, and they can be used as cookie sheets, and for biscuits, or even pizza. Just the thing. I highly recommend The Boat Galley site to anyone with a boat.

I found the provisioning worksheet the most helpful. Find it at: Downloadable Provisioning Spreadsheet
We are preparing for the World ARC and all of the Boat Galley Cookbook hints are great. I love the book!

Re: June Giveaway - Boat Galley Cookbooks

I don't drink much wine but I do enjoy a little sangria over ice on a hot day. So, the article on Getting Rid of Cardboard Wine Boxes is a super solution to my sangria storage dilemma.

A Crock Pot On Board?

We have a power boat so running the inverter while underway is no issue. We recently used a crock pot and it worked very well. The meal was hot and ready when we anchored!
