Book Description

June 28 2006
James Barber--Canada's most famous television chef and author
of more than fourteen best-selling cookbooks--is back with a
delicious new book geared toward people who are wet and cold and want dinner in a hurry.

Over the years, Barber has whipped up meals while cruising on seiners, yachts and even a wee Davidson dinghy, so he knows 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 mouth-watering 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 Georgian Salmon Stew to Sweet Pear Omelette to Shrimp and Cucumber Curry, these recipes will buoy your spirits and keep you afloat! So come aboard: let James Barber share his passion for good food and inspire you to enjoy a fine meal after a long day out on the water.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Notice to Mariners July 24 2006
By Rocky - Published on Amazon.com
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, well used March 8 2011
By Kippsters - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 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 Amazon.com
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.
