Fit for a FID

Westdale Printing Group Ltd

Fit for a FID is a recipe book with a difference. First published in 1957, and written by a FID* who served as General Assistant/Cook in the 1956-57 season on the Argentine Islands (Base F Wordie House), this recipe book gives a humorous insight into the foods eaten on a British Antarctic base in the 1950s, as well as a sense of life on base. If you want to know how they made seal meat hamburgers, or why the author was not a fan of penguin ("I have an awful feeling inside of me that I am cooking little men"), then this is the book for you. Accompanied by humorous anecdotes from the author, this book went on to be issued to every British base in Antarctica. *FID: A member of the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey, later called the British Antarctic Survey
