It was my turn to write the station news this week and instead of telling you all about the important science, constant weather events, daily work life or terrific scenery here at Casey, I decided to mention the best part of being in Antarctica. The food!
Over the winter we occasionally get the opportunity to cook for the entire crew. My first job was as a taco cook at a Mexican restaurant in Melbourne and since then I have loved Mexican food. Over the years I have developed my own recipes and so it was with great excitement I prepared a dinner recently. Enchiladas, taquitos, quesadillas, chilli con carne and rice was served up with churros for dessert. It’s a lot of fun cooking for 27 people although it does stretch your maths ability working out the quantities!
