Working as a professional chef... on a yacht

Interview with Kurt Scicluna

See what it’s like to work as a professional chef… on a yacht!
Kurt has invited the Zone to his current place of occupation – a luxurious yacht cruising around the Mediterranean.
Hear Kurt’s story, why he has chosen this job, and where he plans to sail off later on in life. 

For the Zone team, Kurt cooked pork with apples and cider on a bed of spinach.

For those interested in trying the delicious meal, here is Kurt's recipe:
Cook-fry lean pork meat in butter with some chopped apples.
Add apple cider (about a regular size can) along with the fried pork into a pan and cook in the oven on a low heat, leaving the apple cider to simmer and reduce. 
When the pork is ready, thicken the sauce with some crème fraîche and serve on a bed of spinach.
