The Underwater Café

Chef Gregory Brown

“When the cook of the Kalmar Nyckel unexpectedly quit, the captain surveyed the motley crew in desperation and asked, ‘Who is willing to take up the task?’ In a mistake I will never regret, I raised my hand and began the adventure of my life,”  writes Chef Gregory.
The Underwater Café shares Greg Brown’s two full years of musings about life aboard the Kalmar Nyckel. In a “below deck” and whimsical way, Chef Greg describes his years of feasts and foibles as the novice chef for the ship’s crew.  This compendium of chef’s logs illustrates how a modern crew learned to live with limited resources amid unpredictable waters. Included too are 75 of the crew’s favorite recipes!  Welcome aboard!
