Emerald Cruises’ Azzurra to feature on new ITV food and travel show

A new food and travel show featuring Emerald Cruises’s yacht Emerald Azzurra has been commissioned by ITV.

Six destinations in the Adriatic will be featured in the show fronted by 2021 Masterchef champion Judi Love.

The five-part series, ‘Judi Love’s Culinary Cruise’, will see her set sail from Kotor in Montenegro to Parga, Kerkira and Kefalonia before finishing in the Greek town of Itea.

No date has yet been disclosed for when the series will be screened.

Emerald Cruises’ managing director, sales and marketing, Nichola Absalom, said: “We are thrilled to host Judi Love on board Emerald Azzurra to discover the spectacular local cuisine and sail to some of the region’s smaller ports on our 100-passenger yacht. 

“This industry-leading luxury yacht is the ideal base from which to showcase this beautiful part of the world, and create some mouth-watering local dishes.”

Love said: “I am so excited to be setting sail on this new adventure with ITV. 

“Growing up within a Jamaican family, food was always at the heart of any function and occasion. So I’m truly excited to experience the culture, people and food of the beautiful Mediterranean.

“I’m looking forward to exploring all of the destinations as food has such a way of telling a story for many, especially in the Mediterranean where it’s about sharing love, traditions and identity.

“I have always loved watching loved ones cook and I truly love serving up a hearty plate of food for my family and friends. So I’m thrilled to be able to embrace this with ITV and the audience at home… I can’t wait to get started.”
