CLEAN BRIGHT AND TIGHT. "There are more than 200 recipes to fit the different circumstances often faced by sea going cooks, incl a chapter on liferaft cooking. These recipes were collected by the authors during a three year voyage from the Mediterranean across the Atlantic to Brazil, through the Caribbean, and finally across the South Pacific from Chile to Tahiti. Wherever possible they looked over the shoulder of chefs on board freighters, liners and charter boats, explored harbour kitchens, and collected recipes from the cooks of cruising yachts and fishing boats. Many of the recipes are their own, designed for small boat galleys without refrigeration or electrics, but with a two burner stove. Their zest for cooking is linked with practical information for small boat crews. ; 004880; 8vo
