The food on board

On board the Tecla we do not work with a set menu. The menu is developed on board with influences of her surroundings. We try and cook with as many local fresh products as possible, this means that around the Canary Islands we eat a lot of tapas, peppers, plantanas (banana’s). In Brazil we eat a lot of fresh fruit, cow meat and rice. And around the North Sea, when it gets colder you will find some ‘stamppot’ (Dutch mashes potatoes specialty) with smoked sausage on your plate.

During a longer stay on board you will hardly ever see the same dish come by. Most of our meals are served with a salad or fruit on the side. During longer trips we take good care of our vegetables and fruit to ensure that you will enjoy fresh food as long as possible.

If you have an allergy or cannot eat certain food, please contact us with your dietary concerns. We provide a healthy menu were you will have enough choice. 

We do not provide a vegan diet and on certain voyages we do not provide a lactose intolerant or gluten free diet. 

We do provide sweet, savory, hot and sometimes somewhat fat delicious food, but there is always a healthy choice next to it.

The meals

Breakfast depends on the sailing situation. When underway breakfast is at 8, a buffet where you will find fresh baked bread when we are underway for longer periods, with cereals and porridge. When we are anchored or in harbour we will eat breakfast outside in fine weather, or inside together on a table with an egg, or ‘wentelteefjes’ (French toast), or a fresh fruit salad.

Lunch is almost always served with something warm or special, can be soup, sausage rolls, fresh fruit or special bread.

Dinner is at 18:00 hours when we are sailing. When the weather is good and it is still nice and light outside we will serve dinner in a buffet style outside. If this is not possible you will find a buffet downstairs with the possibility to eat inside or outside. When we are not sailing and eating inside you will find a set table where we can enjoy the meal together.

Our cooks have a passion for food and makes sure that her meals look and taste amazing. Our favourites are lasagne, Lamb curry’s and fresh fish on the BBQ or from our smoker.

When you go sailing with the Tecla, you will go on a culinary trip around the world. You will find influences of all the places we have visited and will be surprised with a beautiful meal every night.
