Wink

catch some fish, scrounge some mussels or other shellfish (the more the merrier), cook with a clove of garlic, a little onion, maybe some celery and/or carrot,( if not, ca ne fair rien!) add some wine and voila! gourmet meal.....

Just some I found, I dont know about all. I have used Werling and brinkmans. I found them good but to large for one person.

Werling and Sons, Inc. - Home
Brinkman's Turkey Farms: Producers of Canned Meats
Keystone Meats Canned Meats
Yoders' Meat & Cheese Company | Specialties
Freeze Dried Meats - Emergency Essentials

That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.

I like that at least one other person considered live animals (saltwater fishtank) to be a viable option. If you can't handle killing them, you can't handle eating them!

For long haul cruising w/o access to markets we usually freeze meat and fish and eat it as (or just before) it thaws. This allows for some pretty nice meals, like filet, chops, roasts, shrimp, fish and scallops. If you can put it all into one cooler and get a friend or merchant with a commercial freezer, they can get the whole thing REALLY cold. A big, well-insulated cooler should hold enough food and coolth to last four or five crew for about a week, with nice dinners at least once a day, without any refrigeration.

Meal, Meat, it is a fine line

I did the same thing. For Gourmet Meats, I have some specific ideas.

My favorite no-refrig gourmet meat is really good canned Tuna. If you have only had the normal stuff, you will be amazed what really good canned Tuna is like. The best stuff if Tuna belly. If you eat Sushi, this is what they call "Toro" and sell for $100+ per pound. The Spaniards and Italians, in their infinite wisdom, can this stuff and it is divine. There are several brands, but the can will say "Ventresca" on it. Even if you cannot find the Ventresca, the high end Spanish or Italian canned Tuna in oil is sublime. The most common brands I have seen are Ortiz and As Do Mar.

Another no-refrig option is cured sausage and ham. Go to an Italian or gourmet market and you will see a wide variety of cured meats that require no refrigeration. They can be eaten plain or used as an ingredient to liven up veggies or seafood. Chorizo (Spanish, not Mexican Chorizo) is especially good for the latter. Here are some others: Cured Meats: Salami's just the beginning

My cook book (it's on the boat - so no name), a boaties book, tells of singeing (sp?) the outside of the meat with a blow torch to kill all the flies eggs, etc, and then storeing the meat in a cool place (bilge). He says it lasts weeks, even when bought in 3rd world markets, and he has successfully fed the masses without killing them. A bit radical but I thought that I might try it on a short trip as I don't have enough space in the fridge.

These are some realy great ideas.
I also appreciate the jokes.

I'm sure this thread will also be of help to other sailors as well.

BTW .. IMHO , sailing w/o some fine dining makes for mizerable admirals, whether permanent or temporary.

Love the responses!!!!!!

Canned food, with addition of spices, dried pasta, rice, et all .
I am not a very good cook, at all. Yet, on a sailboat, with
limited refrigeration, or in the case of my former boat, no refrigeration,
I whipped up a bunch of good meals. Breakfast can be a challenge
with no dairy products, milk/cheese/or fresh bread. I did mix up some
pancakes with the water and flour mix, that came out ok.

Thinking about it .. there really is no reason not to have great food without
refrigeration.
