    Mishelle Martin and Matthew Francis
    Spiced Maple Pork shoulder
    Serves 3-4 or 7-9
    1 (3-4 or 7-9 lb) pork shoulder, boneless, fat cap on top
    6 garlic cloves
    1 yellow onion, chopped
    1 ½ teaspoons chile powder
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    ½ teaspoon cayenne
    2 tablespoons Kosher salt
    1 tablespoon black pepper.
    1½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    1 tablespoon mustard
    ¼ cup maple syrup.
    2 cups Red wine (merlot)

    Place the garlic, onion, chile powder, cayenne, salt, pepper, apple cider vinegar, mustard, maple syrup in a food processor, and blend until smooth. Set aside.
    To the pork shoulder, create cross-hatch marks on the fat cap on top. Pour on the spiced maple rub. Rub the mixture all over the pork, including the sides and the bottom, cover and let marinate overnight.
    The next day, 8 hours before serving, Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).
    Place the pork in a roasting pan on a wire rack. Reserve the excess marinade. Add 1-2 cups of red wine on the bottom of the roasting pan to keep the meat moist while it cooks. Cover with aluminum foil and roast for 3 hours. Remove the covering, and roast for another 3 hours, the meat should be very tender, browned on the outside, but still sliceable. Every 2 hours, baste it with it’s own fat or add water or wine, if necessary.
    Remove the meat from the oven, drain the pan juices into a pot and cover the meat with aluminum foil, and allow it 30 minutes.
    To a small pot, Add the excess marinade with a cup of red wine (or pan juices). Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, and let reduce until thick.
    Slice the meat, sprinkle with salt, and serve with the red wine maple reduction on the side. Enjoy!

    ½ enoki mushrooms
    ½ cup chardonnay wine
    Microgreens, to garnish

    To a large pot of cold water, add the potatoes, bring the water to a boil and cook the potatoes until tender, 10 minutes (TIME IT!)
