Hi, my name is Greg and I would like to welcome you to my food blog where I can share my love of cooking with my passion for sailing. I find cooking and sailing are similarly fulfilling for me, albeit in different ways. Having a 5-course meal come together beautifully and effortlessly is immensely satisfying. Then again, chasing the sunset down the Long Island Sound or surfing a sailboat down 30 foot waves in the middle of the Pacific is also a wonderful experience! Feel free to check out my Ocean Adventures blog if you would like to find out more about my sailing and ocean racing adventures.
One of the most common questions I have heard many people ask, is how can you prepare all those dishes in a small space like the kitchen (it’s actually called a galley) on a sail boat? Well, a good part of my life has been spent living in apartments between Europe and New York City, and for the last few years on a moderate sized sailboat. As a result, I rarely had the opportunity to cook in a large kitchen. Working in small kitchens have simply been the norm for me. Interestingly, the galley on my boat is actually larger than some of the kitchens in Manhattan apartments I have lived in! I’ve found the key to successfully cook in small spaces is being creative and organized. The two concepts need not be mutually exclusive.
I hope you find this blog useful and helps to spur you to creativity in your own kitchen or galley. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you! And of course, any tips or ideas are always welcome.
Thanks for visiting my site and happy cooking!
