Sail-World.com : The Boat Galley – helping you get the most out of your boat’s kitchen

The Boat Galley – helping you get the most out of your boat’s kitchen

'Carolyn Shearlock, author of The Boat Galley'    Carolyn Shearlock
Like to eat on your boat? Sure, we all do. It just adds to the fun! What’s better than eating dinner and watching the sun set over the water . . . or an early morning, watching the birds with a cup of coffee and warm homemade coffeecake in hand?

But turning these visions into reality involves overcoming some challenges in cooking aboard. There’s less space for food and equipment, not to mention less counter space. There may be limited water and electrical power. The refrigerator – or lack thereof – may pose other challenges. There’s no electric mixer, garbage disposal or dishwasher.

Most of us want cooking aboard to be pleasant, a part of the general fun aboard. And now there’s a web site to give you the answers you need, regardless of whether it’s your first time cooking aboard or you’re more experienced and looking for a solution to a particular problem.

TheBoatGalley.com (http://TheBoatGalley.com) is devoted to helping boaters get the most out of their kitchens. Written by Carolyn Shearlock, a former cruiser, articles focus on practical ways to cook without prepared foods and electric appliances, with foods that store well on a boat. As Carolyn says, in six years of full-time living aboard and cruising, she learned a lot about what works (and what doesn’t) aboard a boat. And now she’s passing it on.

The Boat Galley isn’t a gourmet cooking site, or limited to recipes – although there are a few boat-friendly recipes. There’s a wealth of information on how to store food on a boat, things to think about in choosing galley equipment, tips on dealing with a temperamental oven or stove, making your refrigerator or cooler more efficient, hand mixing, choosing the right water filter, staying cool in the galley, clearing a balky drain and more – over 250 articles to date and another one added every few days.

The Boat Galley also has an active Facebook group (http://facebook.com/TheBoatGalley)-- asking questions, sharing equipment 'finds' and passing on tips -- that you're sure to 'Like'!
