During Christmas in November at the Jasper Park Lodge, participants were treated to a serving of pork crown roast at the Gala Dinner. Executive Sous Chef Paul Shewchuk kindly shared the Jasper Park Lodge’s recipe for a Gala Dinner worthy Pork Crown Roast.

  1. Rub the crown roast with a little canola oil. Rub with garlic all over the season with salt and pepper
