For a day sail on the Chesapeake Bay with out-of-town guests, the must have lunch is crab cakes.
I woke up the other morning craving fried eggplant. That’s never happened to me before. Probably not to you either. Maybe it was because I had a beautiful globe eggplant in my galley from the Annapolis Farmer’s Market. Along with tomatoes, onions and peppers. So it was time to get creative.
For your guests who expect the red carpet treatment, cornish game hens are perfect in a galley oven. They make a beautiful presentation to surprise those visitors who think eating aboard is tailgate fare. I like to butterfly the hens so they can be roasted, then glazed, breast side up. No turning, no burning.
