Description

James Barber—who was Canada’s most famous television chef and author of more than fourteen bestselling cookbooks—wrote One-Pot Wonders for people who are wet and cold and want dinner in a hurry.

Over the years, Barber whipped up meals while cruising on seiners, yachts and even a wee Davidson dinghy, so he knew first-hand the challenges of cooking on the ocean in a tiny—or non-existent—galley. One-Pot Wonders makes gourmet cuisine accessible to the average cook, featuring over one hundred simple recipes for delicious soups and salads, hearty breakfasts, delectable desserts and exquisite one-pot main dishes that can be served for lunch or dinner. Each dish is easy and quick to prepare, uses readily available ingredients and only a few essential kitchen tools. There are also tips on how to stock your galley and many suggestions for recipe substitutions and variations to address diminishing supplies—a common occurrence at the end of a long trip.

From Fancy Oyster Stew to Banana Omelette to Chicken Biryani or Asian Almost Risotto, these recipes will buoy your spirits and keep you afloat!  So come aboard: let James Barber’s passion for good food inspire you to enjoy a fine meal after a long day out on the water.
