Re: The definition of I can cook
I think that I can cook. While I like to take a lot of time to research and create new recipes, I would say that maybe my best skill is cooking up a delicious and nutritious meal using what I've got. In preparation for sailing across oceans, I am learning to grow sprouts and make cheese. I love the idea of having fresh crunchy greens every few days, and I think that out in the middle of the ocean, a week away from land, would be an ideal place to make fresh mozzarella and ricotta cheeses to construct a wonderful lasagne dinner for the crew. I'm not prone to seasickness and have medical skills too. Our first meal that I cooked on our boat was angel hair pasta with bolognese sauce topped with fresh-grated parmigianno reggiano, served with garlic bread and steamed green beans with slivered almonds. This was paired with a bottle of red wine and dessert was tarte tatin.
Now you've got my attention... How do you make cheese onboard?
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
