In this exciting cooking book, Chef Kelly takes you on a culinary journey of exquisite, easy-to-prepare meals that will tantalize your taste buds and exceed your expectations.

“If there’s anyone who understands the challenge of creating truly gourmet meals on a boat, its me! I’m a chef both on the water and off, and after years of boating across the globe I can teach you everything you need to make quick, easy and delicious meals from the galley.” Chef Kelly says.

Inspired by the author’s many trips across the Pacific, “Meals Ahoy!” is a cookbook made especially for boaters. It conveys how gourmet cooking on a boat is as easy as cooking at home. With years of experience as a chef in the galley as well as restaurants and kitchens around the world, Chef Kelly has brought his expertise to this unique collection of galley menus. Each menu has been tested over and over again in the galley itself, not just in the home kitchen, and is easy to prepare regardless of on-the-water conditions.

From Pacific Sushi to Spicy Shrimp Cocktail, from South Pacific Delight to Salt Spring Island Blue Cheese Toast, from Haro Strait Fish Moose to Elizabeth Rose Beef Stew, “Meals Ahoy!” presents recipes that will tantalize any sailor’s palate. Take the stress out of entertaining on a boat and make it the enjoyable, fun experience it should be!
