The Galley Chef: Trailer and Photos

I can’t believe I haven’t written about this before!  If you’ve sailed with us or get our newsletter, then this is not necessarily new, but it’s still fun.  If you aren’t that connect to us (yet) then read on!  The Galley Chef is a show about cooking, the Coast of Maine, living in a small community, sailing and family.  A terrific film crew came on board this summer to get the raw footage and then this fall, pieced together some short clips to use in pitches to the usual suspects.

Now we wait for the stars to align so that we find ourselves in the right place at the right time.  No matter what happens, we have all had a terrific time working together and creating something of which we can be proud.  We have no idea where it will take us, but that’s the fun of creative projects.  Sometimes the projects are worthwhile in and of themselves, just for the fun of working collaboratively and innovatively.  If they become something more – even better.  Galley Chef TrailersGalley Chef Photo Album.

Yankee Magazine

Okay, today it’s fun to be us.  Really most days its fun to be us, but I LOVE the days where you see evidence of all you’ve been putting out there – the positive, the helpful, the mindful, the joyful.

Yankee ran a piece called “Dinner with a View” and the Riggin is the feature.  Check out the article in the May/June 2010 issue.  Annie Copps, the food editor at Yankee Magazine, then did a short video piece on the website.  It’s not that long and very descriptive of what we do.  Yankee’s take on meals on the Riggin.

Thank you Yankee!  I’m blushing a little bit, but not too much to share!

Adventures in Living Well

For those of you who are in the area, and are 55 or older (I’m sure they will be carding everyone at the door), I’ll be giving a talk on our life on the Riggin, how we’ve come to create a sustainable business within the eco-tourism sector and all of the interesting projects on which we’ve been working over the past year or two.

Oh, and by the way, we’ll eat lunch together! Yesterday I met with John Roy, the chef at Quarry Hill, the retirement community where I’ll be speaking, to talk about the menu. I’m thinking about Curried Lamb and Lentil Stew and Chicken and Pesto Soup with Handkerchief Pasta. John and I will be working together to recreate a typical lunch aboard the Riggin, complete with the baskets and bowls that I typically use.

It’s free, but you must make reservations and I understand that it’s already booking up.  Around the Table – At Home or At Sea.

Details:

  • March 24, noon to 2pm
  • Quarry Hill Retirement Community, Camden, Maine
  • To make reservations call 230-6114

Off to test a few more recipes for book and column…

Mother Earth News Radio – Interview about cooking on the Schooner J. & E. Riggin

The interview with Andrea Ridout of Mother Earth News is available for streaming.  Of course if you’ve already sailed with us, it won’t be news to you!  But fun anyway.  If you’ve not sailed with us, it’s a chance to hear about our sustainable view on food and have fun dreaming about sailing the Maine coast this summer.  Maybe those who’ve sailed with us should have a listen too so their wait for the next time doesn’t seem so long!   This is how Andrea and Dan, her co-host, started the interview:

Last year Andrea had the pleasure of taking a trip on the J. & E. Riggin, a historic 115-foot sailboat that launches out of Rockland, Maine. The boat specializes in cruises around breathtaking Penobscot Bay — and if that isn’t cool enough, it is also eco-friendly. The crew composts, uses mostly wind power, and cooks three meals a day for 30 people on a vintage, cast-iron woodstove.

Thanks Andrea and Dan!
