James Barber is perhaps Canada's most popular television chef and the author of more than fourteen superbly produced cookbooks. In "One-Pot Wonders: James Barber's Recipes For Land And Sea" he draws upon his decades of experience and expertise whipping up meals while cruising on seiners, yachts, and dinghies to present a compilation of savory recipes that can be accomplished in tiny (and even non-existent) ship galleys. Quick and easy in preparation, utilizing readily available ingredients, and requiring only a few essential kitchen tools, now anyone having to be 'ship's cook' on anything from a rowboat to a cruise ship can accomplish culinary wonders regardless of their circumstances. In addition to a culinary wealth of delicious recipes, Barber also provides tips on stocking a galley, as well as suggestions for recipe substitutions and variations often necessitated by diminishing supplies (a common occurrence at the end of a long voyage). From Hot Bacon Salad; 25-minute Chicken with Tomatoes and Ginger; and Sesame Salmon Stir Fry; to Barbecued Flank Steak; Pasta with Baby Clams; and Asian Almost Risotto, "One-Pot Wonders" is one cookbook that truly lives up to its title.
