Chef Roger Mooking considers himself a "Pork-aholic", not just because of the sweet taste, but because it's a cost effective everyday meal for even the largest of families. The standard with a Pork Loin meal is applesauce, only with Roger's Obedient Ingredient, Persimmon, an equally sweet flavour gets the sauteed treatment and takes dinner from the standard to the sublime! Roger prepares pork loin cutlets and crusts them with toasted fennel seeds. A traditional Risotto is made with very untraditional Pearl Barley. To sweeten the whole meal deal, a sugary mint topping garnishes the meal. This pork dinner is sure to bear fruit!
