    Over 100 players are traveling the world for 7 weeks on a whirlwind Zaar World Tour 7.
    Come check out our recipes, see the places we've been and what we have learned. icon_biggrin.gif
    ZWT7 - Virtually Travelling the World!~Main Thread



    This Challenge showcases the Canadian Forum

    The coldest, driest, highest, and loneliest continent, Antarctica is also to many, the most wildly beautiful. Until relatively recently the private reserve of scientists, hardcore explorers, and a very lucky few, it’s now—thanks to comfortable icebreakers and aircraft—readily accessible to our Adventure Collection travelers, from its theatrically mountainous Peninsula to the Pole.



    The Antarctic Treaty and Current Research
    The treaty prohibits military operations, nuclear explosions, and the disposal of radioactive wastes in Antarctica and provides for cooperation in scientific investigation and the exchange of scientific data. In 1991, 24 nations signed a protocol to the 1959 treaty barring for 50 years the exploration of Antarctica for oil or minerals. The accord also contained provisions covering wildlife protection, waste disposal, and marine pollution. The treaty now has 46 member nations.


    Antarctica has no borders, allowing research findings to be freely available to everyone. Also many projects are internationally coordinated and supported without any 'home turf' issues. Twenty-eight nations operate more than 35 year-round research stations on the continent; additional stations are operated in the summer. Summer temperatures are unlikely to be warmer than 0°F (-18°C) so plan to pack your warmest fashions!

    Why Do Science in Antarctica?
    Remote, isolated, and frozen all year, Antarctica is arguably the most untouched and undisturbed region on the planet. Science in Antarctica offers many advantages over anywhere else on earth. For example:
    ~Antarctica has the cleanest air in the world allowing air quality monitoring with a reliable baseline.
    ~Antarctica is the darkest place on earth, an ideal setting for astronomical research.
    ~Studying the bottom of the food chain allows scientists to better understand environmental impacts on humans.


    Express Weekend #1
    Start Date: June 11th
    End Date: June 13th deadline 11:59pm Eastern
    Playable by: 3 players
    Type: Two part cooking challenge
    Points: 5 per player for a possible total of 15 points per team


    Cuisine
    The diet provided at each station is very similar to the kinds of food eaten in their native countries. The biggest deficiency is in the supply of fresh fruit and vegetables - i.e. there aren't any for much of the time, only when a ship comes in or an aircraft lands. This means that for much of the year the food is either frozen, dried or tinned. Your challenge involves using dried or tinned items to prepare a tasty dish.

    Each player will select their recipe from one of the five All Player Cookbooks.
    ZWT 7 All Player Cookbook ~ Africa
    ZWT 7 All Player Cookbook ~ Italy
    ZWT 7 All Player Cookbook ~ South & Central America
    ZWT 7 All Player Cookbook ~ Switzerland
    ZWT 7 All Player Cookbook ~ The Pacific Islands

    Each team member is assigned as follows:
    Scientist #1: will prepare a recipe which utilizes at least one dried or tinned item AND post a brief report on one of Antarctica's wildlife.
    Scientist #2: will prepare a recipe which utilizes at least two dried or tinned items AND post a brief report on science being conducted at one of the stations in Antarctica.
    Scientist #3: will prepare a recipe which utilizes at least three dried or tinned items AND post a brief story about your stay at Antarctica or the journey to get there.




    Please remember to:
    ~Post your report & selected recipe after reviewing. Please list the regional cookbook used.
    ~Please indicate if you are acting as Scientist #1, #2, or #3.
    ~Include your team name.

    wave.gif Hi there!

    I will happily be Scientist #2. I was going to be #3 but I had to lean toward the scientific aspect.

    Not quite sure why this is a Canadian challenge, but I'm game! icon_biggrin.gif

    Also, can we be more than 1 scientist?

    Why Canada? rotfl.gif
    1. It's cold in Canada. This is a cold challenge. icon_lol.gif
    2. Leslie (Canada) is closer to the North Pole than me (Texas). I don't own a parka. icon_cool.gif
    3. Blame Canada. icon_lol.gif
    but mainly ...... 4. The Forum Hosts wanted visitors in the Canadian Forum.

    Each team requires three different players although I have no problem if you would like to do an extra report. icon_wink.gif

    I'm going to be Scientist #3 for the

    and make Sara's 5-Cup Salad. This recipe was perfect as it used all pantry ingredients (except for the yoghurt)!

    Antarctica is not a tourist destination in the traditional sense. It has no tourist facilities, hotels or airports. A few airlines fly over Antarctica to show you the sights, then fly back to where they came from without landing. At least one company runs mountain climbing expeditions, but they make it clear that you need to be experienced and capable and fit enough to endure the rigours or polar mountaineering. Unless you are engaged in some sort of research with a large government grant, you really have no business being there. So, I got myself a job as a dog-trainer with the National Science Foundation and went on down to Antarctica to train huskies as they are the primary 'vehicle' for movement in the area. icon_biggrin.gif

    I would like to ask one question though, can the shredded coconut be counted as the 'dry' ingredient for this challenge? It doesn't specify in the recipe, and I would be using dessicated coconut (which is dried and sold in bags).


    The dessicated coconut is fine. A bag rather than fresh is what would be on site at our stations. icon_smile.gif

    thanks, Susie! icon_smile.gif I figured since we were blaming Canada, I might as well make something tropical. icon_wink.gif

    Good morning, I would like to be #3 scientist for the trip!

    I will be making (as #3 scientist) Tuna Tomato Pasta Sauce, #196758 by Studenchef = Book # 394736 (Italy)

    Tinned/Dried ingedients:
    # 1 cup canned tomato with juice
    # 1 (6 1/2 ounce) can tuna, drained, flaked
    # 2 tablespoons sliced green olives, with some juice
    # 1 tablespoon capers, with some juice
    # 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

    The day started so nicely, although so cold, it was a refreshing to be at the South Pole! We had just come into port last night, called McMurdo Station.

    We were scientists coming to study if any grass ever grew on the South Pole. We would be spending the next month here, with planting, and cultivating the new grass and waiting to see how long it would live. No one had attempted this before, and we were the best of the best when it came to growing grass in remote areas.

    We also brought along our own extraordinaire chef, "Chef Under12persecs" - she could cook a meal faster then "12 per secs and was totally the best we'd ever seen.

    Her galley was beautiful, all up to date with the best appliances and most coveted pantry one could imagine.

    Pantry and Storage Area:


    We had a lot of tinned, canned, and dried foods.






    But at the end of the day, we were looking forward to the lovely Tuna Tomato Pasta Sauce, which Under12persecs could make in her sleep. Served with some bread this would be all we needed in the whole world, after being at Antarctica for the next weeks ahead.
