Apart from the inevitable yellow stains of a messy cook, I do enjoy using turmeric when cooking. That's what attracted me to this Jamie Oliver recipe which in addition to the bright pungent spice, also combines my favourite flavours of garlic and ginger.

One of the challenges of my goal to cook 292 different evening meals over 2020 has been ensuring sufficient variety. What exactly does 'different' mean, for example? And does cooking a loin of pork using a variation of spice blends count?

In pursuit of exciting our senses with different flavours and aromas, I'm pretty sure that this turmeric-spice pork is distinctly unlike this roast loin of organic pork I cooked back in May.

Jamie Oliver's recipe offered a new twist for a premium roast joint and was worthy of a celebration dinner. Our sliced pork was served modestly on a bed of carrot noodles.
