Re: The definition of I can cook

I think you nail it when the word 'provisioning' enters the discussion. It's not simply a matter of being able to throw something together but to plan the menu for an entire passage or cruise.

That is not to put down anyone who can cook at sea in bad weather. I am in awe of anyone who can cook at sea, I confess we resort to salads and sandwiches or pre prepared meals warmed up. Cooking from scratch at sea is purgatory indeed.
