Coup de Chance - Maison Ventenac

A delightfully pure white wine with grapefruit, crisp citrus and fresh mineral flavours. Whilst being fresh, this wine is not lacking in body, making it the perfect pairing for pork and creamed spinach.

Method:

  1. Remove rind from the pork chops, slice the rind into strips and score diagonally with a sharp knife.
  2. Place the rind strips on a wire tray and place the wire tray on top of your roasting tin filled with potatoes.
  3. Bake on high until the rind has become crackling.
  4. Remove crackling and continue cooking the potatoes in the meat fat.
  5. Grab a pan and fry up your pancetta and finely chopped shallots.
  6. Deglaze the pan with your white wine then add your chicken stock and spinach.
  7. Reduce down and continue cooking until thickened.
  8. Cook your pork chops, plate up and serve with a glass of Coup de Chance
