Pass corn puree through fine strainer. Transfer to sauce pan, heat gently, adding the butter and a little more cream if necessary. Adjust seasoning. Remove pork from clingfilm, pat dry with paper towls. Heat non stick fry pan with a little veg oil and gently fry pork on all sides until browned, finish with butter, thyme and rosemary. Rest a few minutes in a warm place. Then slice into 8 even pieces.

The perfect wine:

Clean, very powerful and complex on the nose with good alcoholic backbone amid the sweet aromas of dried prunes and raisins, the Costasera Amarone Classico matches perfectly with the pork tenderloin in Jamon, smoked corn puree, and black garlic of Chef Paul Dodd, finishing with hints of cocoa and cinnamon.
