Sea Salt
This stunning addition to the galley library is at once beautiful to look at and a thoroughly practical guide to cooking and dining aboard with a focus on fresh West Coast ingredients. Even before you browse the recipes, the food photography by Christina Symons will make your mouth water! 
 
Lorna Malone and daughters have spent nearly 25 years cruising and racing on their family’s Jespersen-built sailboat Aeriel and they distil their experiences in sourcing local fare and feeding hungry crews into this book. Along with favourite recipes for a variety of occasions – from a beach picnic or a tough race to a gourmet meal – they share the best spots to purchase or gather ingredients on the Gulf Islands, Vancouver Island and points north, and practical advice on how to equip the galley and provision for extended cruising. You’ll find more than 100 recipes here to try at home or aboard.

But Sea Salt really deserves to be enjoyed in the cockpit on a summer afternoon, with a glass of something cool, while you mull what’s for dinner.|
