This is a divine combination of pork fillet, turkey breast and ham, interspersed with a mixture of parsley, garlic, green peppercorns and anchovies, which impact a wonderful flavour to the rest. Despite its impressive appearance this savoury swiss roll is both fun and easy to make. It can be eaten hot, with perhaps potatoes and french beans, or it is delightful cold, sliced very thinly and arranged on a large serving plate with a salad.
Lay the pork fillet on
Spread a third of the parsley mixture on the flattened pork fillet. Cover with the turkey or chicken breasts and spread on more parsley; finally cover with the slices of ham and spread with the rest of the parsley mixture. Now roll up, starting from the short side, like a swiss roll. Carefully place the roll join-side down in a roasting pan and smear it all over with lemon juice and olive oil.
