Editorial Reviews

Review

At turns intimate, earnest, self-effacing and entertaining.
--The Miami Herald


A lively, intimate and colorful behind-the-scenes romp aboard luxury yachts. An odyssey worthy of Homer.
--NPR


"I want to be on a luxury yacht with chef Victoria Allman and her captain-husband Patrick. I promise to behave better than most of their charter guests, as long as I can sample some of Allman's pan-seared grouper with Thai curry sauce, or monkfish with caponata, or warm lobster potato salad. And heck, if she cooks me some of her coconut bread I'll even swab the decks. SEAsoned has it all--high-seas adventure, an ever-changing cast of memorable (if sometimes insufferable) characters, and the absolute best meals on the water imaginable. From the Bahamas and the Amalfi Coast, to the Greek Islands and Barcelona, Victoria Allman proves herself to be a chef with good humor and world-class skills." --Bob Morris, author of the Zach Chasteen series of Caribbean mysteries

From the Author

Many people have wondered what it's like to live on a super-yacht that cruises the oceans and docks in exotic ports around the world. SEAsoned is a candid, first-hand account of my journey as a chef with my husband on his first assignment as a captain. Along with cooking gourmet meals at a moment's notice, my duties include pampering wealthy guests, handling a novice crew, and sorting things out with my husband. All this aboard a luxury yacht that's barely seaworthy. SEAsoned has it all: travel, adventure, and humanity, along with fantastic cooking and eating. Sprinkled throughout the book are easy-to-follow recipes showing how to duplicate the meals I describe.

More About the Author

Victoria Allman, author SEAsoned: A Chef's Journey with Her Captain, has been following her stomach around the globe for thirteen years as a yacht chef. She writes about her floating culinary odyssey through Europe, the Caribbean, Nepal, Vietnam, Africa and the South Pacific in her first book, Sea Fare: A Chef's Journey Across the Ocean.

Both of Victoria's books, Sea Fare and SEAsoned, have won Florida's Royal Palm Literary Award for First Place in Travel.

For four years, Victoria was a columnist for Dockwalk, an International magazine for crew members aboard yachts. Her column, Dishing It Up, was a humorous look at cooking for the rich and famous in an ever-moving galley.

She also regularly contributes tales of her tasty adventures to Marina Life Magazine, OnDeck Skipper, and OceanLines.

You can read more of her food-driven escapades through her web-site, www.victoriaallman.com

I'd recommend this book for anyone who likes to laugh, play or eat, and especially to those who enjoy doing all three on the water!
Den Bailey
She's charming, gracious, unassuming, and of course, has a fascinating story!

This book kept me enthralled for hours, though I've never been on a yacht and I'm no gourmet chef. I loved the travel stories and sensuous descriptions of food, not to mention the antics of crew members and the spoiled, wealthy guests.

Victoria's Allman's life would make an amazing TV series. I'm dying to taste her Tahitian cheescake or warm coconut bread. You won't regret buying SEAsoned, and you'll probably want at least one copy to give away.

A little insight into the world of private yacht chef-ing & crew living. Good simple recipes for those who are novice cooks.

Love this book Victoria, waiting for the next one. I have tried a couple of the recipes and they were very popular with the family. Everyone loved them and the things you have done in your life really makes me envious. Great reading and practical book as well. Make a great Christmas present.

Ahhh! The life of luxury aboard a super-cool yacht with everything you desire at your beck and call. That is unless you’re one of the weary crew who stays up every night making these demands come true!! Victoria Allman spins a tale of high-seas misadventure better than an old-time pirate in a port bar. I must admit, I couldn’t believe the gall of a few of her haughty customers when they made their ridiculous demands. I laughed out loud at her predicaments and my mouth watered at her recipes. The next time I think of how much fun I’d have traveling the world by sea I’ll reread her stories and laugh with her once more. I loved it! Thanks Victoria! I’m now in-search of Sea Fare!!!

Well, I do one out of the two...I have worked on a mega yacht but I don't cook but that didn't stop be from having the laugh of my life! Victoria takes you on her journey with her husband (who just happens to be the Captain) step by step or rather roll by roll! It's not easy to explain what we do or how we do it but she does it with such visualization and humor...I was reading the book whilst getting a pedicure...in Hong Kong...pretty sure they thought I was some crazy Western lady because I would be quiet for a bit then chuckle then go into full-on deep, until your side hurts laughter. When my husband, a Yacht Captain as well, came to meet me, I couldn't wait to tell him the story of one of the deckhands after a big night out and the antics that ensued (you'll just have to read the book to find out the whole story)! But I just couldn't tell it like Victoria had written it! She truly has a gift with words. And then, to be able to have such incredible recipes filtered throughout this amazing tale is priceless. As a Chief Stewardess on yachts, I will say that the Chef's have the hardest jobs. Not only are you cooking 6-star service for 10-12 guests but you are also cooking for all the crew as well so for Chef Victoria to find time to create fabulous recipes, cook them and then write about them is beyond me! I can't read to more!
