  • 2 tbsps ground garlic
  • 2-3 tsps Shadon Beni
  • 3-4 cups of water


Simply place all the ingredients in a pan to simmer until thick.

Their yacht, a Bowman 45, which they fitted with a Levante 4 stove, has been their home for the past ten years and has taken them safely around the world once already.

The owners are one of our first customers and continue to be very pleased with the performance and reliability of their GN Espace stove.  Its excellent cooking performance and low gas consumption make it an essential piece of equipment for live-aboard and ocean cruising.
