One of the idiosyncracies I can't resist is the way Travis keeps to humungous shipfuls of serving sizes, so the recipes specify, for example, "6 Racks of Ribs for 15 hungry sailors" and "25-30 portions of Cornflake Crusted Creamy Mushroom Pork Chops". If this potentially makes the book seem a little less than useful for us landlubbers, the recipes are in fact so simple and easy to follow that even i can perform the simple divisions necessary to get the dishes down to family-size proportions.
There's no getting away from the fact that the meals prepared by Travis on board are aimed at convenience as much as flavour, at one point mentioning about a Shepherd's Pie that: "to make the presentaion a little fancier, use a piping bag for the instant taters on the top". But many of the recipes in the book are devised by Jason, Travis's chef brother, who is certainly on dry land when it comes to recipe-writing. There are some seriously delicious, inventive and feelgood dishes in this book, such as the Blackened Halibut Caesar, the Shipwreck Ceviche with Shrimp, the Firecrackin' Shrimp Brochette with Jalapenos and Pepper Jack, the Crab Club Sandwich with Vanilla Aioli and last but not least the Mango, Papaya and Brie Quesadilla. There's even an intriguing new recipe I've never come across before for pizza dough, which uses pale ale.
Much more than a novelty cookbook, Catch! is an exciting and entertaining cookery book with plenty to keep you occupied while you dream of getting out to sea. And, just remember, you've got more chance of keeping these delicious meals down if you avoid setting sail!

A review by Marty Martindale, editor of Foodsite Magazine.
We liked this cook and tale book, because it was so GUY - guys out on their own - guys in danger - guys ALWAYS HUNGRY and guys cooking under some very rough and "make-do" conditions. In all that salt air, everything tastes waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too good, right?
The book is attractively styled in manly colors, ingredients set apart for easy cooking and every food section is preceded by some exciting manly sea tales.
Here's some of the at-sea, grueling conditions creations the guys ate between adventures:
