Whether you are taking the island route or you have found that quiet little local getaway where you can drop the hook, the menu can sometimes appear rather dismal. It's easier to plan a cruise where the furthest you will be from a market or a restaurant is an afternoon's boat trip; but really, sailing all day and winding up in some breathtaking, serene setting and dining under the stars can be your five star restaurant. In order to fully appreciate that experience, however, you'll need to make some serious plans for provisioning. In this guide, all of the necessary components for an efficient galley, adequate provisioning, and enjoyable meals for short term or extended cruising are addressed. Also included are some menu suggestions and recipes that are both practical and delicious under most sailing conditions. This guide is primarily geared toward the boater that is relatively new to the world of cruising. It is intended to help take some of the time consuming guess work out of using the galley to its full potential and making the menu planning process less of a challenge. Even though a more seasoned boater may already use diverse and reliable provisions, menus and recipes of their own, the suggestions in this guide may provide some new ideas and inspire him or her to expand upon an already existing repertoire of methods, resources and recipes, as well.
Presenting a social history of colonial food practices in India, Malaysia and Singapore, this book discusses the contribution that Asian domestic servants made towards the development of this cuisine between 1858 and 1963. Domestic cookbooks, household management manuals, memoirs, diaries and travelogues are used to investigate the culinary practices in the colonial household, as well as in clubs, hill stations, hotels and restaurants.
Challenging accepted ideas about colonial cuisine, the book argues that a distinctive cuisine emerged as a result of negotiation and collaboration between the expatriate British and local people, and included dishes such as curries, mulligatawny, kedgeree, country captain and pish pash. The cuisine evolved over time, with the indigenous servants preparing both local and European foods. The book highlights both the role and representation of domestic servants in the colonies. It is an important contribution for students and scholars of food history and colonial history, as well as Asian Studies.
