I have been reading an unusual book about an unusual cuisine, Hoosh, by Jason Anthony. The book is about the cuisine of the Antarctic, a continent populated by seals, birds, explorers, scientists, and support staff of many kinds. Anthony’s story begins in the Golden Age of Antarctic exploration when dogs provided both transportation and food. Explorers on those early expeditions faced not only extreme weather and climate but also significant challenges in terms of both cuisine and nutrition. These were challenges that they often could not overcome, even after the dogs were eaten. The story of the modern Antarctic and its cuisine is equally engaging, if (thankfully) less gut wrenching and tragic. Thank you to the blog Time to Eat the Dogs for a great reading recommendation.
