SEAsoned: A Chef’s Journey With Her Captain by Victoria Allman

SEAsoned: A Chef’s Journey With Her Captain, a delicious travel adventure takes readers on an journey aboard a yacht into the heart of working for your husband and staying afloat during the first year of marriage.

Victoria’s Recipe for Marriage

Take two adventurous newlyweds, place them on a floundering yacht wrought with problems. Make the husband the captain and boss of his wife the chef. Add two inexperienced crewmembers, an anorexic diva and her bully of a husband, a CEO who thinks he’s in charge, a randy wife who is bored of her own marriage and looking for a diversion and a drunken first mate. Stir it up with a violent storm and rapidly flooding engine room. Apply pressure and watch the situation simmer to a boil.

Sprinkled with over 30-mouthwatering recipes and spiced with tales of adventure, SEAsoned is the hilarious look at a yacht chef’s first year working for her husband while they cruise from the Bahamas to Italy, France, Greece and Spain; trying to stay afloat.

Victoria’s first book, Sea Fare: A Chef’s Journey Across the Ocean was released to critical acclaim and won the prestigious Florida Writers Association’s Royal Palm Literary Award for Travel. A chapter from Sea Fare was included in Rita Golden Gelman’s food anthology Female Nomad and Friends and another won WanderWomenWrite’s travel writing contest, 2010.
