Prosciutto and chard wrapped pork with goats cheese and elderflower

There is an amazing amount of elderflowers around  and I can’t find a good place to pick enough to make something substantial such  as cordial or wine. I picked a few flowers and brought them home. I wasn’t sure what to do with them but I had an idea.

I had a pork tenderloin for dinner and I thought it might be nice together with the elderflower. We went to the allotment to get some chard and some kale. I picked fresh bay leaves and fresh herbs in the garden and then I was ready to get cooking.

I started by roasting the chard stems, the kale and some bayleaves and I boiled some new potatoes.




Prosciutto and chard wrapped pork with goats cheese and elderflower

preparation time 10 minutes 

cooking time 30 minutes 

oven 180C

serves 3


  • 80 gr or 2.8 oz thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • 80 gr or 2.8 oz soft goats cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped herbs, I used chives, parsley and coriander
  • 3 large chard leaves, steamed until just wilted
  • 1 crown of elderflowers
  • juice of 1/4 lemon
  • salt and pepper

Trim the pork tenderloin and salt and pepper it all around. Brown the outside in a hot frying pan.

Place the prosciutto on cling film and spread the blanched chard on top.




Mix the goats cheese with the chopped herbs, the elderflowers, lemon juice and pepper.




Spread the goats cheese on top of the chard and wrap the pork tenderloin.




Roast the pork in the oven for 25-30 minutes. When cooked let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing it. Serve with seared courgette, the boiled potatoes and a rhubarb vinaigrette, you can find the recipe here.






The roasted vegetables were nice and crispy. The elderflower flavour was quite subtle but it was great with the pork. I wasn’t sure it would work but it did.

    How interesting and creative to use elderflower with pork! And I love all the layers around the pork, especially the swiss chard. I do get tired of swiss chard rather quickly, but we grow it anyways because it grows so well….maybe I wouldn’t get so tired of it if I could think of ways to use it as creatively as you!
