BVI Sailors! For the most delicious on-board dinners, order your meals thru Ms. Penguin! We found out about Ms. Penguin frozen foods via Moorings 18 years ago as we learned the crewed charter companies would use Ms. Penguin for their on-board dinners. Now we know why....ALL her offerings taste healthy and home made. Add a salad and starch to her entree's and "voila" -- perfect onboard, easy dinners. Our sailor pals are all foodies---everyone agreed, her food cannot be beat. Boat galleys are funky but the ovens are consistent. AND, owner Christianne Peçanha, is the most lovely person! Visit her at her store near Moorings/Sunsail or order enough so her company will deliver. You will not be disappointed!
I am just sitting down to plan meals and provisioning for our annual three-week sailing vacation in the BVI. I am so glad to be able to come to this website and place orders for food that I know will be delivered precisely on-time and absolutely delicious. I am challenged: my husband is a meat-lover and I do not care for meat at all. A sailboat refrigerator is small, but Ms. Penguin has such wonderful dishes that we both love. His favorite is the chocolate mousse and the lasagna bolognese and mine is a toss-up between the eggplant parmigiana and the caponata. Now....I can hardly wait to enter the website and place my order. Looking forward to our first bites!
This has been the 4th experience we have had with your delicious meals, and each has been consistently wonderful. Each charter has brought a new group of guests, and all have raved about the quality of your offerings. Your menu offers enough variety to cater to individual tastes and needs (gluten-free, vegetarian). The meals are wonderful, the flavors extraordinary, the portions ample, and a great value for the price. Special kudos for the flourless chocolate cake and key lime pie.
How you manage to put so much goodness into such an easy-to-prepare package is beyond me. After a long day of sailing, sitting down to Ms. Penguin's mushroom lasagna and eggplant parmesan was both easy and a perfect evening after a perfect day. Everything was excellent; thank you!
Thank you so much to ms penguin for the yummy food we ordered last week. We had 12 people on our charter boat (which include 5 kids) and so the option to eat on the boat was for convenience and to save money. Ms penguins totally came through for us and everyone (even my picky 6 year old twins) loved the food! And thanks to ms, mr, and little penguin for delivering it to our boat on Easter Monday!
Just starting to plan the provisions for our annual 3 week bareboat sailing vacation, and I am so glad I can turn to you! Your meals are so delicious...so gourmet, and so easy. Nothing like dropping anchor at the end of the day, opening up a bottle of wine, putting on the music and popping one of your meals in the oven to heat while my husband and I relax! Retirement is great, but I hope you never do it (:
I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the meals - they were wonderful and so perfectly convenient - thank you so much - we'll be sure to do it again if we go back!!! I would also add that we have a 4 & 7 year old and they loved the food as well!!!
This is our 5th charter with The Moorings over the last 6 years. We always order their split provisioning and absolutely love the Ms Penguin meals and desserts. We were disappointed that The Moorings has dropped the Beef Stroganoff from their meal selection, so we are ordering directly from you. We also love your meat Lasagna, which fortunately is still on their provisioning list. Thanks for your wonderful food. It makes yacht chartering meals so much easier...and better!
I want to express my thanks for the wonderful meatless lasagne that you prepared for my family. It was a delicious addition to our Christmas Eve dinner and our tradition of fish and lasagne continued. The tiramisu was our dessert that evening. We also enjoyed the fritters and quiche. Many days they were our lunch along with a salad. Your information about Tortola was also helpful and I really enjoyed talking with you. We hope to return to the BVI soon and we will certainly make your delicious food part of our provisions.
Four of us just completed a 6 day cruise of the BVI and we enjoyed two of Mrs. Penguin's chicken dishes, curry and ginger, very much. We wanted 3 meals for 4 people, so we ordered 3 meals of each (a total of 6). Mrs. Penguin delivered these frozen packages directly to our boat's refrigerator at exactly the agreed upon time, being careful that the refrigerator was at proper temperature. The packs stored well in the refrigerator and we had our last meal of ginger chicken on day 6. The portions were very generous and all we had to do was steam a vegetable and warm the chicken dish on the stove top, which, together with a little wine and bread, made for a wonderful, gourmet-type meal on board for three of our anchorages (and it is much less expensive than eating on shore). The quality and taste of these dishes were extraordinary and we would highly recommend them as an easy, but special, meal on board.
I am about to order food for my May sailing trip, but I want to recommend these meals again from my order for last DEC's trip: Beef stroganoff, curried chicken, mushroom lasagna, wings and conch fritters. All excellent. Sailors can easily fit two entrees in the oven of a 47' monohull. I am sure there are bigger ovens on cats for more entrees at one time. Food kept well in small on board fridge. There were four adults and an 18 month old this time. This food was not frozen TV dinner quality; it was as good or better than anything we could find at any anchorage with a lot less fuss after a hard day in the sun. Sometimes you just want to hang on your boat and not fuss with cooking a meal. I visited Ms. Penguin's kitchen for the pick up in DEC and it is pristine. Ordering now for my third Ms. Penguin experience in May.
We just returned from our trip and I wanted to let you know that we loved everything that you prepared. We used the chicken wings and conch fritters as afternoon snacks to have with our drinks, layered the vegetarian chili on grilled hot dogs to make chili dogs, and made two big dinners out of the rest (ginger chicken and chicken satay one night, and lasagna and the eggplant parmigiana on another night). We’ll certainly come back to you again!
I have sailed in the BVI for 12 years and usually do all the provisioning. This summer I learned something new. I was delighted when I tried Ms. Penguin for the first time in June 2009 for some of my entrees. The dinners were delicious and generous. We actually wished we had ordered more from Ms. Penguin. I do wish those boats had bigger fridge units. You won't go wrong trying Ms. Penguin. It is located right near Moorings and Sunsail. Christianne was helpful and pleasant when I met her.
Welcome to Ms Penguin, your number one source for yacht charter and vacation villa provisioning.
We’re dedicated to giving you the very best prepared meals and desserts, with a focus on home-cooked style, gourmet taste and heat & eat convenience.
Founded in 1996 by Christianne Peçanha, Tortola Frozen Foods Limited, dba Ms Penguin Prepared Meals, has come a long way from its beginnings in a converted sail loft. Actually, we’re still in the converted sail loft.
When Christianne first started out, her passion for cooking and her desire for change drove her to quit her teaching job in Brazil and, on the urging of her friends in Tortola, gave her the impetus to turn hard work and inspiration into a busy kitchen in the BVI.
Our customers come from all over the world and are thrilled to be able to enjoy a home cooked meal while on vacation – be it on a yacht anchored in a romantic harbour or a luxury villa enjoying sunset views. Many of our customers come back every year and it’s been a real pleasure establishing a friendship with them. Some of them have even seen our family grow.
We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy offering them to you. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
