Reflections on Ridge A: Food (Geoff)
Going camping in one of the most remote, coldest and inhospitable places on Earth, I didn't have high expectations in the food department. In fact, when we first met Ben (our mountaineer/guide), he read out his proposed menu for the trip which included things like quesadillas and enchiladas. I kept my mouth shut but was secretly wondering how it was possible to cook up anything even remotely delicious in such harsh conditions.
Well, I was proved wrong! I am not sure how, but Ben created some of the tastiest meals I have eaten since being in Antarctica. Perhaps the best dish of all was left unphotographed: melted cheese quesedillas with a sprinkling of Italian 'erbs. These photos show a few of the meals we enjoyed (the yellow tinge is caused by the tent fabric).
