Do you need crew food ideas?
Every now and then we get a message from a yacht chef begging for crew food ideas. And we get it.
Sometimes we get so bogged down with guest food our brains get fried. Suddenly we have gotten ourselves into a rut of cooking food that’s too similar or keeps using the same ingredients. Crew food can often be the last things on our minds after weeks of stressful charters and guest food.
As chefs, we know our guests depend on us to be cooking to the very best of our abilities, but so do the crew.
Many of them work hard outside in the heat, or in the cold rain, especially over yard periods. The crew often look forward to coming in for a delicious lunch or dinner after a days work.
Use crew food to your advantage. Test guest meals on them, different flavour combinations, new ingredients. Your crew will love you for it.
Using the crew food recipes
We aren’t going to tell you how to use this download. You might want to structure entire crew meals around a single dish that inspires you, or you may just want to glance at it every now and then to see if something jumps out and catches your eye.
As chefs, we know how to take a dish and change it up, so from one recipe here, you may substitute the proteins with chicken, fish, lamb, prawns or go full veggie.
Perhaps you like the idea of a flavour combination but you have a different vegetable component? No worries, tweak everything as you see fit!
But, you can use it to search hundreds of recipes which are all linked to various food blogs and recipe websites.
They are all simple and are made with ingredients that are readily available for crew food. There’s no caviar or lobster, but of course, if your budget allows for it, feel free to garnish as you wish!
