Wendy Trusler had cooked for many hungry tree planters in the Canadian boreal forest; she knew how to feed people under the constraints of remote locales.

As it turned out, Trusler, also a visual artist and food stylist, had just the skills Carol Devine was looking for in an Antarctic expedition cook.
