A 1950’s recipe book guides cooks in the Antarctic, providing instructions on how to prepare the local wildlife.
“In a chapter on seal brains, he listed recipes for fried seal brains, seal brains au gratin, brain fritters, seal brain omelette and savoury seal brains on toast. The cook must be a man — there were no British women in Antarctica at the time.”
Antarctica was declared a nature preserve in 1959. Presently, researches depend on deliveries of frozen and canned foods.
