23 April: Feeding habits of the Antarctic Scientist (Scotia Arc Expedition 2013) #2

Since the science is a bit slow at the moment due to the weather, I thought I’d share some info on our feeding habits. To keep us (and a hungry crew) full and happy the ship has four kitchen staff, with two on duty at any one time throughout the day.
Meal times are:
One of our science team has a gluten allergy, which the kitchen is very conscientious about, always marking which foods are and are not safe. The kitchen crew always does a good job of keeping the dessert table full of delicious and varied treats.
At the moment there is banana bread, a chocolate cake and incredible, chewy chocolate chip biscuits… Actually I’m going to have to end it here. *OM NOM NOM*
