What Sarah Turnbull did for Paris in her best-selling travel memoir Almost French, Alexa Thomson does for Antarctica. Antarctica on a Plate' is a joyful account of a career woman who lobbies shamelessly to get to Antarctica - despite her utter unsuitability for the job. The book captures her sheer exuberance at finding herself on a continent that defies description. It's the story of three short months on a blue-ice runway where the accommodation is basic but the food is five star. Armed with an old cookbook, Alexa attempts to create three-course meals with no electricity or running water and struggles to defrost meat in the coldest place on Earth. Life in a thin mylon tent in the company of scientists, explorers and eccentrics soon begins to take on extraordinary dimensions. As 75-mile-an-hour winds blow and tensions rise, friendships - and love - are forged in this frozen neighbourhood. 'an exuberant memoir. From her one-man tent pitched on the ice, Thomson graphically recounts the physical and emotional impact of living in tiny, tent community. And finding love among the snowdrifts is no bad thing, either.' - Vogue
