PORK LOIN CHEF: Alyssa Paredes

I moved to the Renton area from El Paso, Texas, two years ago. I’ve always had a passion for great cooking; and after I found out that Renton Technical College had a great Culinary Arts program, I pretty much jumped for the opportunity. This is my second quarter and I love it. My goals after graduation are to become a certified culinarian from the American Culinary Federation and, long-term, own my own restaurant.

RENTON FOOD AND WINE: Fruity wine works best with this pork

Autumn has arrived and it is the perfect season for Spiced Rubbed Pork Loin. Pork loin is one of the leanest cuts of meat and pairs perfectly with white wines, especially Gewürztraminer (pronounced geh-vertz-tra-mihner). Pork loin needs a wine that is low in tannins and mild in flavor ao as to not overpower the flavor of the pork. If the pork is made with fruit, then a soft and fruity wine works best.
