...and his girl left behind. Justin Chambers is going to Antarctica as a chef, and leaving behind all that is normal, for a whole year. Together, but apart, we will document our experiences (well, he'll give me the info verbally and I will turn that in to a blog post!!) as we live in two quite different worlds for those 12 months.

Ever wondered how to make custard when there is no fresh milk?  Well to answer that question and also... how do you make custard without burning the milk?  Apparently it's easy!  To never burn the milk for custard again... USE MILK POWDER!  Justin swears he will never make custard the conventional way again.  When you boil the water before adding the milk powder, you can't burn the milk.  Ingenious.  Hey, and it still tastes great.

And, it had to happen, the first penguin photo.  Although not taken by Justin and the first of probably many, this is the first photo that I have been sent of penguins... the main wildlife down at Davis which is why there may be a few more come through.

Justin has moved to his new digs but got there late Saturday night so hasn't had much of a chance to sort all his belongings in to some semblance of order yet.  His days are long, he has a lot to get used to in the new kitchen environment but has phoned everyday - there is a phone in the kitchen you know - and sounds really happy to be getting stuck in.  He is also pretty chuffed he got the only double bed and plans to 'starfish' for a full 12 months!

Feel free to ask Justin any questions.  He will answer any sent through via comments.
