- Roasted pork

Into a pan with vegetable oil, on medium high heat, colour every side until golden brown.
Add the thyme, salt & pepper and then throw it in the oven.
Whether you do it by time, which is 20-25mins by pound of raw meat, at 400F, or do it with a thermometer while making sure to reach 80C or 176F at the very core.
Let it rest, 10-15mins before cutting it.
- Mashed garlic purée
Cut the garlic in 2 and colour it until golden brown into a pan covered with olive oil. Cover the potato quarters with cold water and cook it for 20mins or so at medium-high heat, sieve it and let them rest a little. While still hot pass it through the presse-purée. Reserve. In the meantime, when the milk is hot, add in the garlic and mix it up with a hand blender. Then add the butter. Mix the 2 altogether, add salt & pepper.
Make sure the bacon is well coloured, it will make everything taste up a notch!
