You’ve made it this far on your wits alone, but now the hunger has set in. Beat the wasteland by teaming up with your survival band to make a little go a long way. Figure out what foods will withstand the end of the world and get creative with how to make them taste good enough to TRADE for - money means nothing when you’re facing total annihilation.
Combining top survival and bushcraft skills with culinary techniques, old and new, you’ll be prepared to make a top restaurant menu - even with the world ending. You’ll compete in daily scavenger hunts to find hidden goods, secret food stashes and the key equipment you’ll need to make your disaster defying dishes. Add creative flair and unusual flavours by foraging edible plants, and perfect food preserving techniques to make sure you have some sustenance to last you through the winter. Remember, it’s a deadly environment, so you’ll even be creating a filter to take the toxins out of your water!
Are you ready to cook with bugs and algae? Clarify with charcoal? Flame-grill with fire? You’ll be building ovens from scratch, scavenging your food and creating flavours you never thought existed. Who knew Armageddon would taste so good?
This mission is currently in development.
The daily itinerary will be published in Winter 2020.
