Food and wines – Deckhand cook option

Greek cuisine is a Mediterranean cuisine. Contemporary Greek cookery makes wide use of olive oil, lemon juice, vegetables, and herbs, grains and bread, wine, fish, and various meats, including lamb, poultry, rabbit and pork. The most commonly seen grain are wheat, however, barley is also used. Also important are olives, cheese, eggplant (aubergine), zucchini (courgette), and yogurt. Greek desserts are characterized by the dominant use of nuts and honey. Some dishes use filo pastry.

An experienced deckhand cook is always part of the crew during your sailing trip with Summer Breeze Yachts. When you book one of our sailboat, breakfasts and a light lunches (half board option) will be prepared by the deckhand cook.

Your cook will prepare authentic, simple but delicious Greek dishes, but also will compliment them with water, wine, soft drinks and of course snacks. Of course the deckhand cook will also keep the sailboat clean during your sailing trip in the Greek islands.

Your breakfasts and lunches will be prepared using seasonal Mediterranean ingredients, using local vegetables, cheeses, meats and of course wine.

Summer Breeze Yachts will get in contact with you prior to your trip to arrange your menu based on your preferences and any dietary restrictions.
