Re: The Gourmet (cough) Sailor

I'm going to follow Michael's lead on the cuisine thing. Reading his Seq blog made me understand the possibilities outside the can.

Sorry Dyl.

Re: The Gourmet (cough) Sailor

Looks great Dylan but around here, we go down to the bunker and grab some packs of freeze dried "gourmet" food and throw on the boat. A lot of the time we can root around and find a pack or two left over in the bilge. No can to fool with and vey tasty stuff. Just need a fork and some water.

Re: The Gourmet (cough) Sailor

Well I guess I have not lived the 'high life' yet. I did not know you could get microwave-able packets of Basimati rice. I love Basimati rice and did not know you could make it (reasonably well) in a microwave, much less a pot of boiling water. I thought you had to put water into the rice.
Dylan Winter's home cooking at it's finest. The closest equivalent you might be able to find here (in the US) would be a can of beef chili and instant rice as I'm pretty sure they only have canned chicken curry in the UK. The Brits do love their Chicken Tikka Masala, don't they.
I'm quite certain that our own TDW uses at least 2 burners to make the same meal from slightly fresher ingredients. Pretty sure he likes his vino and other finery such that canned curry would be beyond the pale. Michael on Sequitur on the other hand is a true gourmand.

Re: The Gourmet (cough) Sailor

Why doesn't that can explode when the contents are under pressure from the heat?
Do UK cans not have that plastic coating inside of the metal cans? If so, won't it melt?

Dylan has done extensive testing on boiling sealed cans of food. (see his website) As far as the plastic coatings, I don't think the Brits have advanced to that degree. (Just kidding Dylan) Besides, the plastic adds flavor.

ergo my reference in the OP to Dylan's "explosive" talents.

As MDBEE mentions, DW has done a lot of testing on this and had thus far failed to either blow himself or his boat(s) to kingdom come. Not without trying I can vouchsafe.

Re: The Gourmet (cough) Sailor

I try to gas grill as many food items as possible while anchored up for the night, which makes just about anything taste better. Turkey Kielbasa, which is just OK on the stove, becomes a delicacy when cut into 1-inch chunks and placed on skewers inter-spaced with chunks of Vidalia onion, fresh mush rooms, sweet red bell pepper slices, etc..., then placed on the gas grill. Makes an entire meal in just a few minutes.

When that's not possible, I pull a TV dinner out of the boat's freezer, put about a 1/2-inch of water in a pot, then sit the TV dinner in the water and bring it to a boil for 10 minutes. It's just like putting it in a microwave and tastes the same - mediocre!

I made a special lifting device for the TV dinners, one that provides a platform that keeps the plastic tray from making direct contact with the bottom of the cookpot, and additionally, allows you to easily and safely lift the TV diner from the pot. I made the lifting device from a length of brazing wire. When I go to the boat today, I'll try to remember to shoot some photos of it.



Cheers,

Gary
