Along with questions like: “Are there polar bears in Antarctica?” and “Is it cold down there?” is also another popular one – what is the food like on station?

Benny, our station chef whips up three meals daily and keeps us well fed and happy expeditioners. The cuisine ranges from Mexican to Japanese, and pub meals to formal dining experiences. All that with only using shelf stable or frozen ingredients, supplemented by a small quantity of fresh hydroponic veggies grown on station.

Oh and do we have party ice? Yes, there’s plenty when you dig out a blizz tail just outside!
