The last hut of the section was Roses! There were some little specs milling around outside. We figured Anders, DM, and Landey had decided not to push through to Macetown tonight. Excellent. Maybe there’ll be some grasshoppers on the barbie? A cake baking session on the go? ;) ( The Tasties like a bit of pan-o-chocolate baking on a hut fire ). We arrive to find DM carving up a turnip. We knew there’d be something! :) How they managed to scavenge a turnip in a completely snow grass covered valley I don’t know! They are clearly way more keen eyed than me :) Turnip and rosemary mash soon appeared. And Anders was busy making rose hip syrup. Ray Mears would be proud I’m tellin’ ya.
Unfortuently it wasn’t shaped like a thingy, but it did taste really good! My generation grew up with Bush Tucker Man on telly, these guys grew up with Bear Grylls, the difference is clear – They eat anything and everything they can get their hands on!
Hats off to them though, it constantly amazes me what’s on the menu each night :)
