Galley Guru vital to the life of the cruising sailor

by Lee Mylchreest on 7 Jul 2014
.. .
There's one sailing event, that, unlike bad storms and blissful moments, repeats reliably over and over every day when sailing - the necessity to eat. It may even assume a greater than usual emphasis, to relieve the necessary routine of repetitive watches, or be the climax to a happy day on the water.

So people like Corinne C Kanter, known to her fans as the 'Galley Guru', are vital to the life of a cruising sailor, and it's also why her books have been selling strongly for many decades. Corinne, sailing since 1969 and full time liveaboard for 15 years, is the author of three cookbooks.



According to International Marine, 'The Cruising K.I.S.S. Cookbook II' is 'the best', and they add: 'Corinne sold more cookbooks than any others we ever put together.'

It has 478 pages of recipes, helpful hints, charts, provisioning, storing, etc. in the first 54 pages of text, and then a total of 645 recipes. They are for meat, fish, poultry, vegetables, drinks, and snacks for preparation aboard. There are extensive how-to sections on pressure cooking, growing sprouts, making yogurt, provisioning, making starting mixes and sauces from scratch, and much more. The original 'Galley K.I.S.S. Cookbook' has been condensed in a special section.

The book has other advantages as well: The recipes are not only delicious, nutritious, economical and convenient, it comes with rugged plastic-comb binding, heavy duty paper for years of use, water-resistant plastic coated cover, all recipes complete on the page, and with large readable type.

You can order the book with Amazon by http://www.amazon.com/The-Cruising-K-I-S-S-Cookbook-II/dp/0961840676!clicking_here, or directly with Corinne for an autograph copy: Write to: SAILco Press 2905 S. Greenleaf Circle, Boynton Beach, FL. 33426 FREE shipping, plus a free gift as well.
