Windjammer Cooking

Galley Goodies: Maine windjammer cooking satisfies!

The combination of sun, salt air, and sailing brings on big appetites. Having witnessed this phenomenon for years, we’re well prepared to handle it. Our galley serves generous helpings of such old-fashioned favorites as Thanksgiving turkey with all the trimmings, New England ham dinner, plenty of salads and fresh vegetables, pancakes, muffins, savory chowders and soups, and even hand-cranked ice cream — all made from scratch and served in generous portions. All of our breads and desserts, including cakes, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and pies brimming with fresh fruits, come straight from the woodstove. And of course every cruise includes our famous all-you-can-eat lobster feast cooked on a secluded beach over a fire. If you have never cooked on a wood cookstove or made bread from scratch you are always welcome to visit the galley and join in the activity. Windjammer cooking satisfies the hungriest seafaring appetites.
