Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put pork loin on a tray with a baking rack.

Season pork with salt, pepper, garlic and herbs. Place in oven for 30 minutes at 375. Turn oven down to 325 and roast for another 15-25 minutes or until pork has reached an internal temperature of 150 degrees.

Featured Recipes

Muhammara is a classic Levantine dip made with roasted red peppers and walnuts. Usually thickened with bread, Chef Kurt uses cooked red lentils instead. Use a food processor if you want a smooth texture. For more texture, use a mortar and pestle.

These “meatballs” have just the right amount of spice. Treat these like traditional meatballs...serve with marinara sauce or pesto on a bed of pasta or make a meatball sub. Or change things up by making the mix into patties for delicious veggie burgers.

Michigan raspberries abound in summer and fall. This simple vinaigrette uses raspberries as one of the acidic ingredients, fundamental to making a flavorful salad dressing. Particularly delicious on vegetable salad accented with fruit.

Chef Kurt shared his go-to recipe for homemade pasta. It has helped him win plenty of competitions! As a member of the audience, I took copious notes in order to publish Chef Kurt's recipe for the first time ever!
