Cooking on a boat barbecue is a great way to prepare healthy food with less fuss and more flavor – there’s quite like the sound of foods sizzling, the smell of smoky aromas wafting around and the hum of happy friends celebrating good times.
Club Marine Magazine’s acclaimed cookbook, Gourmet Delights, features over 100 of the best recipes from international culinary craftsman, Bart Beek, and many have been included with boat barbecues foremost of mind.
Simple to prepare, Bart’s recipes are inspired by dishes from around the world and, in Gourmet Delights, Bart also shares handy tips for barbecuing, knife-sharpening and infusing herbs and spices into your cuisine.
“A good cookbook is a working tool that should feature food stains from regular use,” says Bart.
