    Food Philosophies & Musings! Eating Your Best Aboard Boats

    Food Philosophies & Musings! Eating Your Best Aboard Boats

    With John Kretschmer and Emily Whebbe we're tackling the all important topic of food aboard the boat. We're talking cooking, provisioning, food philosophies, desserts, finding good produce, planning, seasickness, alcohol, and the importance of a good meal on passage. Cooking in the galley is a nice time to just chill and putter around in a little galley-oasis! We love food rituals! One day we decide to eat everything on the boat before we went shopping again. How do you stay hydrated? Water gets so boring after a while. What's your bottom of the Bilge Meal? You should put alot of thought into meals out at sea, because they become the highlight of the day. It can really turn a grouchy moment around!

Great insights in wide range of important issues

I love this podcast. The range of experts and subjects, the insights, and the conversational interview style are all great. Even when I think I know a subject, I always learn more listening to a podcast episode on it. And most important, listening always really makes me want to go sailing! Because of the podcast, I’m going on a Morse Alpha expedition in August and can’t wait.

Top rate sailing podcast for anyone from couch sailors to pros!

Teresa and Ben have put together a terrific professional quality podcast thats entertaining, engaging, and educational. They have so far selected guests who are really well positioned to add value to their well curated topics. If anything, I often feel like we’re just getting started as the episode ends, but they do a good job making the most of a ~45min episode. I guess they’ve got to hook you so you take theirs sailing courses!
