Gourmet Food Roatan Sailing
  • Enjoy delicious home cooked meals, created specifically to your preferences

  • Relax on the spacious foredeck enjoying your morning quiet time being served ‘ensalada de frutas’, home baked treats and the best coffee made in Honduras.

  • Everything made with local fresh ingredients.

  • Giddy? Definition: Sipping a tall tropical beverage, nibbling on appetizers, while watching the sun set from your private waterfront deck

My parents loved to entertain and as a young girl I always hung in the background to watch the ‘grown ups’ interact, listening to what they said and watching how they enjoyed their meals at our home.
Elly Smith

As I got older my mother would invite me to assist her in the kitchen, getting out the ‘special’ dishes, decorating, and later on serving her splendid dishes, me being so nervous not to spill or drop anything enroute to the table.  The smiles on her guests’ faces as the platters arrived and listening to their delighted comments as they ate have always stayed with me.

Roatan Gourmet Food

I have always loved to entertain and now we have Zeppelin Dive & Sail I am thrilled to see our guests enjoy their vacation, being on board and sharing the dishes that we create. Hearing their delight when the food arrives to them, warms my heart. And for some reason… the food always tastes better on the sea!

It all begins with us sending our guests an information form to complete. We want to know about any food allergies, likes and dislikes, right down to the “junk food” section.  This way we get a feel for the types of meals, snacks and beverages our guests will enjoy. As you can appreciate, we live on an island, sometimes we can get the ingredients and sometimes not. It usually takes about 3 days to provision for a charter as there isn’t ‘one stop shopping’ here. Many times the menu changes based on what is available… but we are always able to come up with something special.

I am a big believer in serving fresh local fruits and veggies and lots of it. Why not?  The flavors are incredible, no pesticides and all grown within 100 miles either on the mainland or on the island. Did you know that Roatan has it’s very own Hydroponic Farm that grows mixed greens, romaine, basil, parsley, mint, chives, to name a few? Such a blessing to have this available.

 

 

 

In the morning as you sit on the foredeck you are served local fresh fruit along with home baked treats while you gaze out over the water and watch the birds and clouds pass by. We serve a wonderful dark roast Honduran coffee that is ground fresh each day and made in our French press. If tea is your fancy, we have an assortment of loose teas, herbal and regular. One of guests calls this part “appetizers before breakfast”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We serve a hearty breakfast that will last you through the morning activities. We customize the breakfast to our guests, eggs or no eggs it’s up to you!  Later in the morning after a dive, snorkel, paddle board, sail or reading your favourite book, you can enjoy an all-natural green tea iced tea, or freshly made watermelon juice with a sprig of mint, or another beverage of your choice along with homemade treats.  (It is hard work being on holidays so you need to keep your energy up!)

Then there’s Happy Hour!  Your choice of beverages whether it be a tropical Caribbean drink (we have umbrellas on board… but only for the drinks!) or an icy cold beer, or a chilled glass of wine. Relax and talk about your day, nibble on appetizers and take in the magnificent sun as it begins to set in the back ground. (At this point some of guests are giddy with joy!)

 

Wayne loves to BBQ, so dinners are a treat! Perhaps you would like chicken brushed with olive oil, herb de provence and fresh cut rosemary with roasted potatoes and two types of veggies, or beef tenderloin rubbed with olive oil, fresh ground pepper, garlic and seasoned salt; or locally caught snapper or lion fish drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled lime seasoned salt and pepper, freshly squeezed limes and slices of red onion and garlic all wrapped in foil…  to name a few.  You will love how he BBQ’s the lobster tails… yumm. Whatever your choice of main we will do our best to pair it with a lovely bottle of wine for you to enjoy.  We often have dinner inside once the sun goes down and guests enjoy the cozy feeling of the boat’s interior main salon.

After dinner, perhaps a digestif… port with dark chocolate, a scotch, a liqueur, or a warm herbal tea?  Have you had a blueberry tea?  That is warmed grand marnier with tea mixed together in a brandy sniffer.  Tastes heavenly and smells wonderfully aromatic. A nice night cap.

I would say our food on Zeppelin is simple, as fresh as possible, very healthy with lots of wonderful fruits and veggies, local fish, shrimp and lobster, and home baked treats to enjoy.

Here are a few comments from our guests:

We then settled in some comfy chairs on the bow for the trip to our dinner spot. We had our choice of drinks and Elly started bringing snacks right away. After a beautiful trip up the coast, we anchored in a spot protected from the wind. What followed was a night we will never forget. We had course after course of absolutely delicious food including a cheese and meat plate, crab dip, hummus, wedge salad, the best lobster tail I have ever had, and then crepes for dessert (and I am probably even forgetting something). On top of that, anything we wanted to drink they brought immediately, including a fairly expensive bottle of French wine (we had a choice of several). All of this was by candlelight on a very comfortable table. It was a meal fit for a five star restaurant, and it was obvious they had put hours of effort into it.”

“You can’t ask for better people to host your trip, Zeppelin is a floating museum, she is gorgeous. Ms Elly’s cooking is the best, I’m sure she adds love as a secret ingredient.”
