Katie's Night Watch Shortbread

Anne’s Foodie Blog 2: Sweet-Toothed Sailing Snacks

Leader’s cook Anne shares some of her famous recipes… (with a special guest appearance this week from the boat’s mate, Katie).

All the recipes in this blog are recipes I can do standing on my head, because as a boat cook sometimes there is a need to; and if not standing on your head certainly without two feet firmly placed on the ground and with the added challenge of various members of crew asking you if they can open your kitchen up to check the engine belts or standing on your work surfaces to do goodness know what important nautical task.

I hope these recipes, and the others in the blog, will be enjoyed by all those that come sailing with Trinity…let me know how you have got on replicating them in the kitchen at home.

This week we have…

Katie’s Night Watch Shortbread

There is one thing I like more than to waking up to a clean tidy galley after 8 hours sleep and that is waking up to a clean tidy galley with a dish of freshly baked bread, or even better shortbread.  Anchor watch, although essential, can be tediously long on a calm low risk night. What better way to break up the tedium and cheer up the crew than home baking.  Katie baked these delicious biscuits on watch in Sandown Bay, on the Isle of Wight, and we devoured them somewhere off Selsey Bill.

Anne’s Gooey Chocolate Brownies 

There are various brownie recipes that I use, most of them have a great deal to thank St. Mary of Berry for.  Her recipe for dark indulgent chocolate and walnut brownie, with its addition of coffee, is sublime for afternoon tea. However, for pudding brownies, I use a formula that has worked for me for years.
