Book of the Week: SEAsoned: A Chef's Journey with Her Captain:

'.'    .

If you love both eating and sailing this might be the book for you: Victoria Allman, yacht chef to the rich and famous, has published a new book, SEAsoned: A Chef’s Journey with Her Captain. It is a tantalizing travel adventure tale.

Allman, whose debut book, Sea Fare: A Chef’s Journey Across the Ocean, was awarded the prestigious Florida Writers Association’s Royal Palm Literary Award for Travel, is sharing both her stories and her recipes in her oh-so-delicious new book.

What happens when you take two adventurous newlyweds, and place them on a floundering yacht wrought with problems? Better still, what if the husband were the captain—and boss of his new bride, the chef?

And why stop there? Add in a couple of wildly inexperienced crewmembers; an anorexic diva and her bully of a husband; a CEO who is always in charge; a randy wife, bored of her marriage and looking for a diversion with a drunken first mate; guests who love the nightlife—and require a bedtime snack at 4:30 in the morning; and a chef’s worst nightmare: a guest who just happens to be a Michelin-trained chef. And who could forget a violent storm and a rapidly-flooding engine room? Apply pressure and watch this situation simmer to a boil.

Sound like a recipe for disaster? Hardly: this pressure cooker of epic proportions is the recipe for Victoria Allman’s charming, captivating and chuckle-out-loud new read, SEAsoned: A Chef’s Journey with her Captain. A skilled storyteller with a keen eye for detail and an uncanny knack for telling it like it is, Victoria Allman delivers a spellbinding story that almost reads like a novel.

Wherever good books are sold -  .. .  
Told with heaping helpings of heart, humor and humility, SEAsoned is a tremendous tale that takes readers on an extraordinary journey across the Bahamas, Italy, France, Greece and Spain. Peppered with over 30 mouthwatering recipes, and spiced with a truth-is-stranger-than-fiction narrative, SEAsoned is a book to be savored. A fantastic mix of food, fun, and foibles, SEAsoned is a delightful, delectable—and wholly devourable—look at what happens when life on the high seas turns out to be anything but smooth sailing.

Victoria Allman has been following her stomach around the globe for twelve years as a yacht chef. A columnist for Dockwalk, an International Magazine for crew members aboard yachts, Victoria contributes the 'Dishing it Up' column, a humorous look at cooking for the rich and famous in an ever-moving gallery. Victoria also contributes tales of her tasty adventures to Marina Life Magazine and OceanLines. When not cruising the high seas, Victoria makes Fort Lauderdale, Florida her home base.

SEAsoned: A Chef’s Journey with Her Captain by yacht chef Victoria Allman (NorLights Press, ISBN: 978-1-935254-37-9, Trade Paper, 204 pages, Nonfiction, $15.95) is now available wherever fine books are sold.

Alternately, you can easily buy it online from your favourite online book site.
