Back in the Kitchen

It has been quite a while since I have written about anything food-related. In fact, many of my new followers wouldn't even know about Experimental Cooking Night - a weekly event where I pull out an as-yet untried recipe and see if it is worthy of either repetition (if it is from a cookbook we own) or of being added to my personal only-the-best-of-the-best cookbook, if it is a cutting from a magazine or similar.

So, seeing as I received a few natty little gadgets over the Christmas/Birthday season (see: cornish blue mortar and pestle, garlic grater, ceramic juicer, giant mother of a chopping board) I decided to pull out the old apron and do some experimenting.
It's a Jamie Oliver recipe I'm whipping up here - from his Cook With Jamie book. I've made a couple of things from this book so far, as has the man, and we've been quite pleased with the results. This pork is especially delicious. We serve it with a spanish rice (with beans, roasted capsicum, onion and oregano) and corn on the cob. Yummy.
