Welcome to Seafarers Cookbooks’ web page and blog!
I’m glad you’re here. I’m Melissa, chef and author of Seafarers Cookbook. Three years ago, I started working on merchant ships – cooking and traveling the world. I love all things cooking, travel and organization.
When not at sea, I live in Hollywood Beach, Florida with my husband Mike and the Seafarers Cookbook team: Kitten, Fanny and Wesley, pictured from left to right below. I want to share my recipes, adventures, and ideas with you. Learn more about me, my cookbooks, and being a Merchant Mariner here
Meet Kitten, Fanny and Wesley. This team keeps us on our toes. My husband and I (when I’m not at sea) work from home most days so they have a lot of tasks to keep them busy. Kitten heads up the IT department, although I’m not sure how walking on and sitting on my computer helps. Fanny is the time management specialist, always reminding us when it’s time for a break (so she can get some treats). Wesley is our office manager, always by my side offering support.
