When I first started in the yachting industry I spent the winter in a small Mexican Village. Finding a place to check your email was a chore. Even when I left this boat last, we were just getting email available. Oh how times have changed. We have wi-fi on the boat now and everyone has a laptop. It’s funny to see all of the computers open at the same time. We even have a huge printer now that prints newspapers on demand! That’s not to say it is perfect, we are without signal quite a bit, but really is amazing how far technology has come in the last few years and how much of our lives revolve around these changes. We got our provision order today, I wish I would have taken a picture of all the food we just put on this boat. Since our walk in refrigerator and freezer are on the tank deck level, we chain the food all the way down two stories of stairs, quite a production. It took a little over four hours to put away and some of the new crew members were awestruck at the site of all the food. We are ready to start our charter tomorrow, I will probably be posting a bit less but this group has quite a few dining reservations booked, so we will see. I will be cooking these grilled cheese sandwiches all season long as part of our lunch buffet, they are always a hit.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

All of these cheese come in a reduced fat option.

serves 4

1 loaf french bread, sliced

1/3 cup cream cheese

1/3 cup Boursin Cheese

1/3 cup Parmesan, preferably reggiano

1 tomato, sliced


Mix cheeses together (it’s easier if they are room temperature) and spread evenly on eight pieces of bread. Layer a couple slices of tomato and butter the outside. Pan fry sandwich like a regular grilled cheese, on medium-low until golden brown on both sides.
