Antarctic Sundays by Zane Hacker


Tonight I attended an author talk by a young man who has quite a story to tell. This 30 year old from Pomona in Queensland has been to Antarctica no less than eight times and in two weeks will be heading back to this icy continent for a two month stint.

Originally joining the team at Mawsen Station as a chef, Zane is now a valued member of the team, with many learnt and valuable skills in his repertoire.

His book, “Antarctic Sundays”, combines cooking, photography and his memoirs of his many trips to Antarctica. His photography is stunning and it was one of the most interesting author talks I have been to at our local library in Ashgrove. I, for one, look forward to reading Zane’s book! Available at good independent book stores, the book retails for around $40.

Oh, and Zane made delicious little coconut buttons for us to enjoy with our tea and coffee tonight! Got my vote!
