This is a delicious dish that makes the most of the season's produce, perfect for spring.


Serves 4

  • 4 pork chops on the bone if possible
  • 4 medium potatoes (roosters), cut into half cm slices, skin on
  • 4 small red onions, peeled and cut in half
  • 2 pears quartered and deseeded
  • 10 sage leaves
  • 75mls olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 2 tbs red wine vinegar
  • 150g gorgonzola


  1. Set the oven to 190 degrees.
  2. Place the chops, potatoes, onions, pears and sage leaves on a roasting tray. Drizzle over the olive oil, then season. Scrunch together so the oil coats everything.
  3. Put in the oven and bake for 20 minutes turning once or twice.
  4. Add the maple syrup and the vinegar, then pop back in the oven for another 10 minutes until everything is caramelised and golden.
  5. Divide onto four warm plates with a piece of melting gorgonzola on each for a creamy kick.
