Prosciutto Wrapped Fillet of Pork

This dish is a winner in our Italian Long Lunch cooking class, and what’s not to love about pork tenderloin wrapped in prosciutto, flavoured with fresh herbs and oven roasted with white wine and cherry tomatoes? Like all Italian cooking, the success of this dish depends on quality ingredients: free range pork (preferably from a female pig), fresh herbs, good extra virgin olive oil, decent wine (only cook with wine good enough to drink) and a quality salt such as Murray River Gourmet Salt Flakes (scroll down for a chance to win a gourmet pack of Murray River Salt goodies). This dish is delicious served with our Panzanella Salad of Mixed Tomatoes.

Recipe: Crostata (Rustic Italian Jam Tart)

It’s been a long time between posts, and that’s because this foodie has been eating her way around Europe! Having just returned from a wonderful month travelling Italy, France, Belgium, Holland and England, I’m back in Noosa with renewed culinary inspiration. There were several highlights to my trip – one was dining at Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant The Fat Duck, an incredible experience, and the other was travelling around rural Italy. I concentrated on a fairly small area, which included the regions of Liguria, Tuscany, Umbria and Marche.  On my gourmet escapades, one of the things that was very apparent is the diversity of foods in each region. For example Liguria was abundant with seafood and is where the famous pesto sauce originates, whereas Tuscany cuisine was more meat-based, with game being readily available.
