Here’s the set-up for Victoria Allman’s SEAsoned: A Chef’s Journey With Her Captain, 4.9 stars on 14 straight rave reviews, just $6.15 on Kindle:
Victoria’s Recipe for Marriage: Take two adventurous newlyweds and place them on a floundering yacht where the wife is the chef and her boss, the captain, is also her husband.
Add two inexperienced crew members, an anorexic diva and her bully of a husband, a CEO who thinks he’s in charge, a drunken first mate, and a randy wife looking for diversion. Stir with a violent storm and a rapidly flooding engine room. Apply pressure and watch the situation simmer to a boil.
Sprinkled with over 30-mouthwatering recipes and spiced with tales of adventure, SEAsoned is the hilarious look at a yacht chef’s first year working for her husband while they cruise from the Bahamas to Italy, France, Greece and Spain, trying to stay afloat.
From the reviewers:
A culinary delight for the reader. — Readers’ Favorite
5.0 out of 5 stars A fun blend of memoir, cookbook, and the joy of sailing. – Midwest Book Review
From chapter to chapter, I remained mesmerized as she recounted the splintered docks, the $5,000 vegetable runs, and the incredible Greek taxi drivers; as she weathered squalls created by nature and by blue bloods; and as she shared wonderful recipes like gastronomic gifts of the sea gods. I’d recommend this book for anyone who likes to laugh, play or eat, and especially to those who enjoy doing all three on the water! – Den Bailey
