Pork Tenderloin with Speck, Aubergine, Pickled Onion and Dried Tomato


Cooking instructions

For the aubergine

  1. Preheat an oven to 250°C.
  2. Place the aubergine on an oven rack and cook in the preheated oven for 20 minutes until they are charred on the outside.
  3. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C. Scrape the flesh out of the skin, chop roughly and season. Season the aubergine flesh with garlic oil, a pinch of coffee powder (to give a smoky flavor), salt and pepper, and chopped chives.

  4. Transfer to the oven and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and rest on a tray for 10 minutes.

To serve
