Disappointed in the contents. It was nothing I expected. Little that I would use. Just not my cup of tea.

HASH(0x98f7b7d4) out of 5 stars Notice to Mariners July 24 2006
By Rocky - Published on
James Barber used to have a Cal 20 and knows what its like to have to whip up dinner for a bunch of wet, hungry people at the end of a long day of cruising with only minimal supplies and equipment. This book has 100 recipes any weary klutz can make with canned goods, a coho cadged from a fisherman,or a round of garlic sausage. Small boaters often end up relying on simple foods that keep well, but the menu has a tendency to deteriorate as the voyage goes on. James tells you how to keep some pizazz in your seagoing suppers.This handy little book is a true life saver!

HASH(0x98f7bbdc) out of 5 stars Great Book, well used March 8 2011

A great book, I cook from it at home as well. His attitudes and approaches towards cooking are great, and most things are yummy. In a bookcase full of cookbooks, I reach for this one a lot. There is a bit of a slant towards alcohol in many of the recipes, but other than that its great.

HASH(0x9963a030) out of 5 stars "One-Pot Wonders" is one cookbook that truly lives up to its title. Feb. 2 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
James Barber is perhaps Canada's most popular television chef and the author of more than fourteen superbly produced cookbooks. In "One-Pot Wonders: James Barber's Recipes For Land And Sea" he draws upon his decades of experience and expertise whipping up meals while cruising on seiners, yachts, and dinghies to present a compilation of savory recipes that can be accomplished in tiny (and even non-existent) ship galleys. Quick and easy in preparation, utilizing readily available ingredients, and requiring only a few essential kitchen tools, now anyone having to be 'ship's cook' on anything from a rowboat to a cruise ship can accomplish culinary wonders regardless of their circumstances. In addition to a culinary wealth of delicious recipes, Barber also provides tips on stocking a galley, as well as suggestions for recipe substitutions and variations often necessitated by diminishing supplies (a common occurrence at the end of a long voyage). From Hot Bacon Salad; 25-minute Chicken with Tomatoes and Ginger; and Sesame Salmon Stir Fry; to Barbecued Flank Steak; Pasta with Baby Clams; and Asian Almost Risotto, "One-Pot Wonders" is one cookbook that truly lives up to its title.

The author tested these recipies in the real world aboard his Cal 20 sailing vessel. In my experience they are simple, tasty and good!
HASH(0x9963a078) out of 5 stars Best Cookbook for anyone cooking in a very small kitchen or on a boat! Lots of great tips! July 28 2015
By Terry H. Mccann - Published on

Probably one of the simplest and the best cookbooks around! The man tells us how to cook simply, not to overburden ourselves with lots of pots and pans and fancy cooking tools. This book is about cooking in a small kitchen, and more particularly on a small boat. Which is why I sent it to my brother in Ireland who loves to cook and has now set off on a boat trip with a friend of his to the Baltic region (at time of writing this they have reached Denmark)! However, having sent him the book I really wanted it for me - so I went ahead and bought myself a copy!
