August 2020 – Rogue Home Cooks, Farmers, and Chefs, Oh My!


Come Dine With RoxyAmbrosia apples recipe

Each month on our blog, we’ve been sharing Come Dine With Me… At Home!
 
The premise is simple: create a three-course menu with Ambrosia apples as the star of each dish. Home cooks can choose their recipes from the Ambrosiaapples.ca website. They can substitute anything they want on any of the recipes – or create their own — but all the dishes must include Ambrosia apples. Everyone is instructed to choose one appetizer, one entrée, and one dessert. Cocktails are optional.

Chef Michael Lyon’s Ambrosia Apple Crusted Pork Recipe

What do you like your Ambrosia apples with? We asked Chef Michael Lyon that question and what we got was an amazing recipe for Ambrosia apple crusted pork loin. This super simple but elegant recipe calls for dried Ambrosia apples, fresh thyme and garlic, spicy Dijon mustard, breadcrumbs and a fresh cut of pork loin. Chef Michael walks us through each step, from preparing your pork loin, to creating the crust to the two-step cooking technique. He suggests serving this delicious dish with local veggies (like carrots, beets, garlic mashed potatoes and of course, homemade Ambrosia apple sauce). For the complete recipe CLICK HERE
