I don't understand. What, do some poor people actually REUSE a grill (ugh, so unhygienic! so declasse!) instead of just replacing it with a fresh clean one after each use?

That really is so horrid, couldn't we take up a collection or start a fund to make sure even the poor people have clean fresh new grills to cook on?

Yes, troubling isn't it... but you know, whenever my Mercedes runs out of fuel, I just buy a new one. Wouldn't be proper to upset OPEC decorum.

The next thing you know, some idiot will suggest using the wind to get his/her boat from place to place.

We moved aboard full time last Dec. and love it! Our boat has a "euro style" galley. Diana is a very good cook and I'm pretty good on the grill. We eat pretty well and do just fine in meal prep. Rack of lamb, steaks, Ahi tuna, fresh caught Mahi, Mahi...all cooked on a "previously used grill" (gasp). Diana bakes bread and great rum cakes. The galley has a microwave, 3 burner force 10 stove w/ oven, a kitchen aid mixer (needed weight on port side and granite tiled counter tops.

We never had a concern about cooking aboard.

Curious to note there have been almost 10,000 folks that read this thread and it is clear that eating is maybe just as important as sailing! If you could add drinking as well it's a clear winner. It is less about how and more a matter if when.

Paul-
Do the "views" mean 10,000 separate folks came? Or, that 1000 viewers each came ten times to keep up? 500 viewers 20 times?

Since I have had the great pleasure of dining with Jay and Diana I have to say that Jay understates the wonders Diana turns out of the galley.

It's always Saturday on Far Niente

I found a great vintage item originally made for the "summer" kitchen called an Ovenette. It is a stovetop oven that works excellent for muffins, cakes, even meatloaf, with half the gas. Reheats bread perfectly in minutes. Look on Ebay. I got one with the original pamplet that had the cooktimes for lots of items. It heat up to temp in about 4 minutes! Very cool and saves lots of gas.

Love to cook on our boat. A 1969 Morgan 41, Bifrost. Sometimes a challenge, made cornbread crossing the Gulfstream with two reefs in the main. We have a three burner stove, grill on the rail, pressure cooker. Also two pump thermos, one for coffee and one for hot water to use for instant soup/hot choc when on night watch. No microwave...no room. When planning long cruise, make do ahead meals and freeze. Using a food sealer is very helpful. Try precooking pasta and putting in sealer bags. Keep in frig and bring out and add to prepared sauce/soup. Don't forget to keep a few hidden chocolate bars for when the crew gets restless!!

Just like home, 4 burner with an oven, micro, fridge, freezer, double sink. There is a very soft and easy motion in the galley, it is low in the boat and near the cg. Other then looking out the window you often can't really tell your moving.
