Following our last post about ravioli di fonduta with truffle, we are now going to present you the second dish for your Christmas lunch: pork tenderloin with blueberry sauce.
We have “borrowed” this beautiful and tasty recipe from one of our favourite Italian blog: rossomelograno.
Thanks to Giulia Bellini for the amazing pictures!
Finally a recipe with pork meat! We are delighted to share the first of our secret “Grandmother’s recipes” (called in Italian Ricette della nonna), that we’ve been lucky to inherited during the recent visit of the Mother – in – law of one of us.
We paired this tasty winter dish with a red wine: Primitivo di Manduria “Collezione Bellisario” 2016 – Cantine due palme. This wine, made from 100% Primitivo grapes in the vineyards in the southern Manduria zone (Salento – Apulia Southern Italy), is characterised by a deep-red color, a juicy scent and lots of dark fruit, blackberries, spices.
This Primitivo di Manduria wine is imported to Denmark from Vinimondodk, a wine wholesaler that works with some of the best wine suppliers in Italy, Portugal, France and Spain.
Stay tuned for the other Italian secret Grandmother’s recipes! 🙂
