Galley Playlist Galley days are long days and music always makes it better. The right song encourages me to keep going, helps me stay calm…
Get ready for the season by precooking stocks when you have time. Make a basic chicken stock and beef stock, portion into quart-sized zip-lock bags, and store in the freezer until needed.
It’s a good idea to pre-make base sauces, too. This is a great tip for crew meal prep. I’ll make a large batch of béchamel, Bolognese, and curry paste. Portion into quart-sized zip-lock bags and freeze. Use as needed. Bolognese can be served with spaghetti one day, then spiced up for a quick chili the next!
For curry paste, take about 5 or 6 onions, a bulb of garlic, a thumb of ginger, and dice everything. Sauté gently in a large saucepan. Add your favorite curry spices or even the standard yellow curry blend. Blend and portion into zip-lock bags and freeze. You now have a simple curry base ready to go. Add whatever spices and flavors needed to make a wide variety of curries.
