Reflections on McMurdo: Food (Geoff)
A lot of people asked me what food we would be eating while in Antarctica. Instant noodles? Soup? Seal blubber? It turns out that in the established stations (such as McMurdo), they actually have an incredible food service, where they cater for up to 800-1000 people in the summer. You turn up, grab a tray and plate, and select from a huge range of food and drinks. There are typically 2 or 3 main choices for every meal, an additional vegetarian option, plus a number of sides & desserts. And of course the usual juices, tea, coffee, etc.
I am seriously impressed with the variety and quality of food available at McMurdo. These photos document just a small sample of everything that is available.
