Food52: A No-Churn Ice Cream Recipe from Antarctica: Good, Even Not in Sub-Zero Temperatures

Food52 Feature

I knew I’d be faced with logistical challenges when I signed on to cook for an environmental clean-up project on an island off the Antarctic Peninsula. My first obstacle was using my limited Spanish to order provisions by fax from Toronto to Tierra del Fuego in Argentina, where we would be setting sail from Antarctica. When the foodstuffs were not deliverd to the ship in time for departure, my second challenge was to ensure they would eventually arrive at the Russian research base where we were stationed. When the expedition leader, Carol Devine, and I set sail, we knew we’d have to make things up as we went along.
