Everest's gourmet diners


Ninety years ago pioneering British climbers dined on quail and champagne as they set off up Mount Everest. Now a new expedition aims to bring fine dining back to the roof of the world with a plan to eat a series of gourmet meals, culminating in a supper of Catalan chicken at 28,000ft. Mountaineer Alan Hinkes who is going on the expedition, discusses the menu.
