If you're already starting to think of a Christmas present for that keen home cook who is always so hard to shop for, consider a cook book from the chefs of SeaDream Yacht Club who've consistently won accolade after accolade for the World's Best Small Ship Cuisine since SeaDream's inception in 2001.

This unique 100-page book, that's not available in Australia and can only be purchased on-line giving it added exclusivity in gift appeal, details 90 mouth-watering 5-star recipes from SeaDream's Executive Chef d'Cuisine, Robert van Rijsbergen and the corps of Chefs d'Cuisine aboard the boutique 110-passenger SeaDream I and SeaDream II.

All are accompanied by equally mouth-watering photography and cover classic French dishes, sophisticated international offerings, a mingling of Asian-inspired creations, and vegetarian choices, with detailed ingredients for each to serve four persons.

The book is designed in such as way as to virtually follow how guests enjoy dining aboard the "SeaDream twins" from luncheon through complimentary evening cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres, dinner appetizers, main courses and desserts, a spa menu, and the legendary Menu Degustation for anyone wanting to host a truly unforgettable dining experience at home.
