The charming stories in this book take us from one end of the Mediterranean to the other as we follow Captain Bill Baggywrinkle (‘Baggy’ to his friends) on his leisurely way over the sea, learning to cook for himself and for his friends along the way.
Cooking on a boat does not have to be all tins and packet soup. Starting from simple beginnings the recipes progress to quite sophisticated cooking, but the Tips and Techniques help you along the way. Some recipes are new, some are old favourites but all are tried and tested. If they can be cooked on a boat they can be cooked in a caravan or in any small kitchen where space and equipment is at a premium.
