  • chef knives

  • measuring utensils
  • baking tray

  • baking tray & wire rack

Tips/Tricks

  • I like to use a wire rack to cook my meat on in the oven so that the heat is evenly distributed around the meat. Cooking it in the pan means the piece touching the pan will potentially overcook on that side
  • resting the pork is HUGELY important to allow the juices to redistribute. Cut the pork too soon and you will have the juices all over your plate
  • creamed spinach can be made in advance and reheated to order
