The first thing that gets to my mind when I see pork, is our popular Maltese ‘majjalata’. It translates to literally ‘pork feast’ where a whole pig is slow cooked on a spit-roast.
Since this is undoubtedly not a thing that can be done at home, we’d have to accommodate with our pork chops, pork belly, ham, loin and so on. In London I had also tried pig trotters which basically are its feet and as disgusting as they looked, I have to say that the taste was amazing thanks to the great chef Pierre Koffman.
It kind of puts me off every time I attempt to plan to cook pork because it is easily overcooked and I don’t like it when it’s dry.
Which is your favourite pork dish?
