italy's highest mountain pos at an altitude of more than two thousand seven hundred fifty metres the winding mountain road is special to. the road is legendary because of the way it is and how it was built after driving up while he's felt carsick because of the many bands that stayed in my memory is that so i thought i want to do something here. the twenty nine year old manages to skate in extremely challenging environments because he has years of experience already as a child he enjoyed trying out new scheme moves over the years he grew to become one of europe's finest free riders and in twenty fourteen he was the only german to take caution the newly created slope style competition at the winter olympics. on the course was already there and we could decide for ourselves how to ride it.
2:34 pm
it was up to us which tricks we wanted to perform whether to spin left or right somersault or not it's a really creative sport and. benedick soon felt the rules of the new a limpy freeskiing discipline was startling his creativity so he set off iceland and alaska to ski through pristine untouched nature far from regular ski slopes. it was. special being up on top of a mountain all by yourself. you know that your scent will be a unique experience was a lot like in alaska for example that was scary turtle because these are mighty mountains after all but it's possible to use that fear and to tell yourself you'll give it a go anyway otherwise everyone will be free right so you know there's an element of fear involved sure. sons would say you know.

benedict monna likes to keep pushing the boundaries of free speech he keeps thinking up new and more extreme traits in john's documents his efforts on film. you don't always want to do the same thing well in this sport imagination is essential because without it nothing can develop that's our new trick new jumps come about each person sees a mountain differently that first the stelvio pass project was just an idea in my head you have to imagine how something like that could look when you put it down on paper and in the end you stand there and it's reality and then you have to see it. three riding over to still be our cause is certainly a highlight in benedict's mind a sporting career to date but that unusual trip has also given him many new ideas

a duck breast which normally should be cooked slowly until it reaches an inner temperature of sixty to sixty two degrees celcius are used but i haven't got that long so i'm going to cut off a few slices and sauté them on both sides though not too long or the middle become dry and we don't want that to happen on the farm so i put in a bit of olive oil in the pan or butter i'm a big fan of butter then when it's hot the meat goes into the hands at home take time to make good food that's important but here i'm showing how fast things can go get the outside result in a stiff food on the menu bush so here we have some butter a staple in traditional kitchens and once again we melt it in a hot pan we're serving kale with our duck people usually no kale that's been cooked to death or cool but we have some here that spread really fresh picks when it's still small you can buy it everywhere he was the problem visible so then we put a bit of butter into the frying pan and add a bit of sugar so it can be brown or white sugar and then we let it karma lies very
2:40 pm
quickly. simple tools and you need to keep an eye on the temperature add a bit of salt and that's it all this is as nothing more that involves medicine that sort of imo so here we have simple oranges which i think go great with doc but i think everyone knows that you know cut them into segments and on flies i mean i haven't got that much time so they'll be a bit chunkier. then toss them into the frying pan so it doesn't take that long. luckily i only have to make one dish at home to take your time so good food takes time all sides. to guns in the marketplace and padded dash of porches to make a sauce for the kale should still be really crisp like it is here. real quick enough we can all these discussions. it's science or you just have to make sure that it's covered with water but there isn't a bit of the kill needs to be glazed but not cooked to death whole size as it should retain its shape and still be crisp in the end of the sign so you add
2:41 pm
a little sugar and in the few minutes we have left we'll try to make a sauce out of it to make it a bit more christmassy a little cinnamon a little star a nice and a few clothes so that some of the now bird duck here let's turn of the heat a little then add a bit of salt. to listen guys all. you get here are sauces reducing so. at this restaurant or calles done for feel kind of put it to the side and then add it to the duck just before serving the ends of all here are sauce needs reducing a little more so you can always add some honey. that binds the sauce together a little bit sometimes and sam and house are tough doing. well today in this country what's very important if you can is to look around and
2:42 pm
buy your duck breast from good local farmers people but of course you can find it in every supermarket especially around christmas time you can also buy it frozen. it is good and let it fall well in the refrigerator and then basically do what i did but slower and not so while. in the freezer. so you will see save the duck is done super let's look at our sauce it's almost done there's not much left it's almost time to start serving on a vision of the cutting board away clayton place so where should we start the woman from as a. name and with the duck breast. the spoon. one two . three and you can see there's a little juice coming out of the main down and that's ok so you knew spoon now i really have to hurry the list i'd never do this in a restaurant but it's fun but there's the kale and now add
2:43 pm
a little sauce since that's it's really important that the spices stay in the pants does it give worlds in hopefully in spite of everything it'll still look appetizing . of which it was this an old one joule then come the oranges that were cooked with the sauce and go on top of one two three to make it a feast for the eyes garnish it with marigold or a flower that's in season i bet i've beaten the clock but i've been to decide. pretty amazing there are i what images come to mind when you think of the typical german well maybe our new face book series that so are german we'll give you some ideas here's more. than. one to be come to this. pope's fun.
