Re: The Galley - Must Haves, Don't Needs & Wish List
Add to Brian's list a Baking Stone for your oven. One can by an over-sized pizza stone and have it cut to fit at a local tile shop. It's great for baking French bread and rolls in the oven and, set on the lowest shelf, will stabilize the heat distribution in the oven. The weigh also acts as a counter-weight to items place on the burners (assuming a gimbled stove of course). With a pattern of small holes drilled in it, one can use matching sized bolts, stood on end through the holes, to stabilize pans in the oven (if cooking in a seaway).
"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
