Charity Chef to Serve Caviar on Everest
Arriving at Everest Base Camp tomorrow is a charity expedition aiming to raise money for the support of people with severe learning disablities by cooking.
Yes, that wasn't a mis-type: a chef is currently moving along the Everest Base Camp Trek armed with the ingredients of a meal she intends to prepare for her team at an altitude of 5,360 metres, with a glacier below and the mighty Everest towering above.
Sounds like the perfect setting for a breakfast, and were not talking about milk & cereal; the trekking chef aims to make a posh salmon and caviar breakfast on the mountain. Suddenly I'm feeling hungry.
