Your food is prepared by the professional cook onboard. Most of the food is from fresh or long-lasting ingredients that are loaded onto your ship on the day of departure (Saturday). Part of the ingredients will be bought by the crew fresh at the local market or farmers on the island that you are currently visiting. Fish and seafood is often bought fresh from local fishermen straight after they come back from overnight fishing.
Meat and fish
The ratio of main courses made from meat and fish during your week aboard is about 4 to 3. Every participant gets the same meal. If you do not eat fish or meat or if you are holding a diet, please write your request in the sign up form. The chef will be notified and will try to adapt your menu to suit your request.
BIKEBOAT half board
The BIKEBOAT half board was invented by GEOTOUR. The local cuisine and boat meals are combined with high energy foods for the BIKEBOAT program.
- Breakfast is made up of two courses – the basic breakfast (butter, jam, honey, cheese, liver paste or eggs) and a second, higher energy course, often cooked (for example thick soup, noodle salad, an omelet, risotto, sausages etc.) There can sometimes also be a richer selection of cheese, vegetables and salami instead of the second course. Milk and muesli (sometimes yogurt as well) is offered with every breakfast. You can also prepare yourself a simple sandwich for your lunch and take it with you.
- Dinner: For dinner, there is soup or a starter, small vegetable salad, the main course (usually meat or fish) and dessert or fruit. Traditional white fresh and crunchy bread is served with every breakfast and dinner (usually unlimited).
