Since January, Tyrone has been cooking on the African Mercy along the west coast of the African continent. It's a job I can only dream about at this point in my life.
You see, Tyrone is the chef for the 499-foot hospital ship. Many unique aspects of the job -- like pleasing a crew from 30 nations -- would be enough to send many sea-going cooks home.
Neither Tyrone or his crew of cooks, bakers and other workers are paid. In fact, he must raise financial support for himself and his wife (an operating room nurse on the same ship).
"Imagine feeding over 400 crew members and hosting special functions day in and day out while on outreach in a Third World country/developing countries," said Tyrone on his website, TyroneandStephanie.com. (The website is no longer active. Read Tyrone's current blog at Tyronebcookin.com.)
