We have been fans of Mr D's thermal cooker for as long as we can remember. Simple, easy and perfect when on the water (or when camping!) so we thought we'd offer you a chance to win a brand new 3L Thermal Cooker by simply submitting a recipe for us to try.

Mr D or Dave to his friends has been the King of Thermal cooking for many years now. Below is a short video explaining how a Thermal cooker works.

Enter the Competition

As you may, or may not know, we love cooking onboard and have a regular blog called 'From the Galley' which is a collection of tried and tested recipes that can be easily made onboard your boat.

We are offering our readers the chance to WIN A Mr D's Thermal Cooker. All you need to do is to submit your favourite recipe so that our boat cooks can cook them onboard.

Our panel of judges will select their favourites and the dish that scores the highest marks wins and the winner will be announced my Mr D himself on the Boatshed stand during Southampton Boat Show 2016.

We will be looking for dishes that are easy to prepare, that don't have a huge shopping list of ingredients and that will satisfy the picky paletes of the most ravenous of sailors.

So once you've chosen your favourite recipe, please send it over to us at

Closing date...

Closing date for entries is August 31st and the winner will be announced during the Southampton Boat Show which is on from September 16th - 25th.

Please note that all recipes submitted may be used for marketing and promotional material by Boatshed and Mr D and your details will be added to the Mr D marketing database, of which you can opt out of at any time.
