SeaDream introduces raw food menu

SEADREAM Yacht Club has introduced an optional raw food (also known as living food) menu on aboard its boutique mega motor-cruisers SeaDream I and SeaDream II.

Raw or living food refers to a style of preparation in which all ingredients are raw, organic and vegan (no fish, meat, eggs or dairy), and nothing is heated above 118 degrees in order to retain all healthy micro nutrients.

SeaDream's Norwegian owners, Linn and Atle Brynestad were excited by the health benefits they personally experienced while eating raw foods during a  stay at the Hippocrates Health Institute (HHI) in West Palm Beach, Florida, and subsequently asked HHI's executive chef, Renate Waller to bring her talents to SeaDream's galley.

Renate worked with SeaDream's corporate chef, Sudesh Kishore to create a special, optional menu of delicious, gourmet raw food dishes.

"Switching to a high percentage of raw, living plant-based foods, enables people to reclaim feeling great and being well,"  Renate said.

SeaDream's Sudesh Kishore said the company's reputation for providing a stellar culinary experience remains of utmost importance, with the 'raw food' menu an added option.

"If you come aboard to enjoy filet mignon and double chocolate mousse, by all means it's on the menu.

"One might assume 'raw food' is boring or bland, but guests who choose to try it say it is a tasty surprise."

SeaDream's raw food dishes include Watercress Tang that's a liquid mélange of watercress, Anjou pear, lime and pineapple while the Blood Apple Blaster is a blend of apple, ginger, red beet, lime juice and agave. Salad options include Asian style Cashew Curry Salad; crunchy and slightly spicy. Main courses include a Vegetable Lasagna that uses pasta-like noodles made from spinach leaves and coconut meat, layered between a spicy cauliflower mash topped with a sun-dried tomato marinara.

There are also raw food desserts including a tempting Cashew Lemon Cheese Cake with a crust made from almonds and dates and the filling's main ingredients are cashews, lemon juice, almond milk and coconut butter. For those who prefer sugar free, that is available too.
