Heerinos me Damaskina: Braised Pork in Plum and Port Sauce


Premiered at Symposia. A Series III, the dish inspired by the restaurant Mavrikos on Lindos, Rhodes, braised pork shoulder from the Southeast Food Network with plums and roasted fennel seed in Mavrodaphne, the port-like wine from Patras, Greece. A sprinkling of natural sesame seeds and scallions brighten this mahogany dish served on a bed of cumin-scented Jasmine rice. This rich dish pairs nicely with the Syrah deep blend of Oenodia, Lazaridi's Grand Gold Awarded red with tannins tucking neatly into the plum richness of this dish. Or, for a for an all around good value, Elios Red from Boutari!
