Rose McAdoo uses desserts to tell bigger stories. From making crepes on a volcano summit while backpacking solo through Africa, to decorating cakes with men serving sentences for life without parole, to creating a self-portrait dessert on an icy precipice in Antarctica—Rose uses sugar to understand the depths of human connection. Hired to cook at base camp at McMurdo Station, the United States Antarctic scientific research station, McAdoo created the Glacier Collection, translating her experiences there into climate change sweets—making the knowledge she acquired "literally digestible". Listen in to hear Rose's adventures on ice and land, spinning sugar and study into simple and compelling narratives that permanently reshape perception.
