Chef Dennis will end our great day of sailing with a great dinner and great wines from the GRAEF Winery. He likes to be securely anchored an hour or two before sunset and then serves aperitifs on deck as we watch the sun slip behind the mountains. Meanwhile, he slips below to our French Galley to prepare a dinner fit for a King or a Captain and that is hearty enough for a boatswain.

Here are dinners that have become the favorites of our guests over the years.

Lunch:

Lunch on deck
Mediterranean lunch is a spectrum of delight

We’ve got to be flexible with the midday meal. Sometimes food gets in the way of kayaking, hiking or sailing. On those occasions, we provide bag lunches and trail mix. Other times it’s a leisurely affair, a dining experience. And remember, fruit and cookies are always available in the galley.

Here are some of lunch our favorites:

Captain’s Choice: Mediterranean Deli Platter

An assortment of imported cheeses, paté, sausage and bread
white wine, by all means.
Warning: this menu is frequently followed by a nap.

Grill: Fawgeddaboud cholesterol

Grilled Sausage on French Rolls, sauerkraut, garnishes,
beer, of course. Soft drinks if you must.

Hero sandwiches

Assorted meats, cheeses, veggies and other garnishes
chips and the like, beer, soft drinks, water, if you dare.

Chef’s Salad

Same as the Hero, but substitute lettuce for bread and choice of dressings for mustard, beer, wine, etc.

Breakfast:

We – the crew – always starts the day with French roast brewed in a French press in our French Galley. You can have some, too. But if you want tea or hot cocoa, you’ll have to give us a minute.

Chef Dennis believes that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. He believes that right up until lunchtime.

Breakfasts tend to be hearty aboard Sancerre, but fruit, cereal or sweet rolls are always ready to serve.

Dietary restrictions?

Let us know if there are foods we should avoid. We eat family style, but have always been able to work out a way for everyone to sit back, satisfied after every meal.
