On this episode of Meat and Three we're embracing the wintry weather to bring you stories about extreme cold. Rowan O’Connell Gates starts us off, with an in-depth look at how and why some produce actually benefits from being exposed to the winter frost. Jessica Krainchich then takes us to Antarctica for a conversation with artist and pastry chef Rose McAdoo, who uses cakes as her canvas to speak about social justice. Next Ruby Walsh investigates military MRE’s (meals-ready-to-eat), designed to last in both the freezing cold and the blazing heat. Our last segment is a throw back to episode 27 of Meat and Three, “Dead of Winter”, when Nina Medvinskaya reported on the surprising industry of luxury ice.
