Slow Roast Porchetta…a labour of love, but worth it!

Simply put, a porchetta roast is made by rubbing a butterflied pork roast with a flavourful mixture of herbs, spices, garlic and lemon zest, and then wrapping the whole thing up in a fresh pork belly. The whole thing is then slow-roasted for the better part of the day, until it’s juicy and falling-apart-tender, and then broiled until the exterior is crackling and golden-brown.

Louisa @Living_Lou

The idea came from a maple, walnut cookie recipe that I’ve been making for years; this combination is so delicious and I knew that adding bacon would only elevate it even more.

Mustard and juniper berries-crusted picnic shoulder... and lazy weekends

Julia @Imagelicious

Have you tried the picnic shoulder cut of Ontario pork? If not, then you need to run to your closest butcher shop now – it is now officially my favourite cut. Not only is it succulent and full of delicious meaty flavour, but it’s also extremely economical and very affordable.
