Elegant, wine friendly pork entree for a dinner party

farmersdaughter | May 12, 2010 11:52 AM

I'm hosting a French wine-centric dinner party on Saturday for six people. I usually fix lamb or beef for these dinners, since this group tends to focus on aged Bordeaux. This time the group decided that some kind of pork dish is in order, so I'm looking for good suggestions for pork entrees which:

-- are elegant

--contain seasonal ingredients

--are compatible with French wines (not sure which region will be represented at the dinner, but the person bringing the wine knows pork will be the entree and will bring wines from his cellar which will match the dish I describe to him)

--do not require lots of cooking at the last minute.

Any kind of pork cut is fine. Thanks in advance for any suggestions given the crazy limitations.
