6:47 am
but once he's reached the mountain top he's not content with a simple snack he treats himself to some homemade muesli with fresh blueberries. if not even in the mountains is a real pleasure especially when you have fresh ingredients and it's like fresh farmers. are all made mostly where you know exactly what's in it you need energy for mountaineering and that's why i think you should prepare as much of your own food as possible marcus them as a trained cook who used to work in munich's high class restaurants he always liked to take time off for traveling around the world one day he decided to combine his 2 major passions in life cooking and adventuring now he publishes books on a cool may outdoor cuisine and today against this amazing backdrop he's preparing freshwater civic chase a starter followed by venice insulting baka with forrest mushroom risotto he's

6:49 am
he can't predict how long the cried forrest mushroom and rice will need to boil as that depends on the altitude. to hire a car i'm the lower the air pressure highest that means my broth boils on a far lower temperature and in extreme cases there 8000 meters of water boils i just 60 degrees celsius the problem there is some food doesn't cut properly today he says now to do 1700 meters so preparing the result isn't an issue cooking times for the venison wrapped in satan have also depend on the out of there with enough patience mountaineers could prepare meat even in the himalayas and the south and baka looks cool most is good isn't a 5 star restaurant movement funding in the mountains isn't always as easy as it looked today. but it's certainly fun trying new things by combining the things
