The Antarctic Book of Cooking and Cleaning

A Polar Journey

by Wendy Trusler and Carole Devine


This true story of the first civilian clean up project is told through anecdotes, journal entries, vignettes, recipes and archival and contemporary photography.

In this visually captivating polar journal, Trusler and Devine transport the reader to Bellinghausen, the Russian research station and a summer when 54 volunteers from 5 countries picked up nearly 3 decades of garbage. They ate eclectic tasty food  using limited ingredients cooked in a small camp kitchen.

This book is nourishing in all sorts of ways.

“What a lovely, beautiful, wonderful book.” Michael Ondaatje
