Arista di Maiale al Forno | Roast Pork Loin

This is a typical dish of Tuscany, sometimes called Arista di maiale alla fiorentina. In fact, the name “arista” is said to have come from an outburst from a Greek cardinal who, having been served the dish in Florence, exclaimed, “Aristos!” meaning “the best!”

The seasonings are also typically Tuscan: rosemary, garlic, black pepper, and sage. In the picture the arista is served with potatoes cooked alongside the roast and a vegetable flan, Sformato di verdure.
