Servings 6 People


  • 2 lb Pork tenderloin cut into 6, about 2 inch thick medallions
  • 2 large Shallots finely diced
  • 1 tbsp Plain Flour
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 oz mushrooms finely sliced
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine
  • 1 cup Chicken stock
  • 3 tbsp double cream
  • 2 tsp Parsley chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Gently flatten the medallions with the palm of your hand and season lightly with salt.
  • Heat the olive oil in the frying pan, add 1 tbsp of the butter and, when it starts to foam, add the medallions.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  • Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Melt the remaining butter in the pan and sauté the shallots until golden brown.
  • Add the sliced mushrooms and cook gently for 5-8 minutes until the mushrooms are gently caramelized.
  • Season with salt and sprinkle on the flour.
  • Cook for 1 minute and stir in the Marsala wine, boiling for a couple of minutes until the alcohol has evaporated.
  • Add the chicken stock and simmer until reduced by half.
  • Stir in the cream, return the pork to the pan plus any pork juices and cook for approximately 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Check to make sure the pork is cooked – it should be just slightly pink inside.


I serve this dish with a selection of lightly blanched fresh vegetables and chunky chips to mop up the creamy sauce, but a nice potato puree works just as well.

Gary and Jane Langton

When Jane was younger she wanted to be a show-jumper and, although she had some success, Jane knew she could never afford a horse that could take her to the top. Similarly, Jane enjoyed cooking and would have loved to be a chef, but she always knew that the unsocial hours would never fit with raising her family. So she stepped into the world of property construction and interior design, where she enjoyed a successful and fun filled career.

Gary went to a nautical school and always dreamed of going to sea, captaining his own ship. Although he managed to be selected for officer training in the Royal Navy at an early age, by the time he was 18 he no longer had 20:20 vision and his chosen field in the RN was no longer open to him. For a short period Gary studied quantity surveying before finally choosing a career in banking, during which time he lived for a period in New York before returning to London and ultimately running a global business team (involving much travel).

Jane and Gary met, via the internet, in February 2005 and their relationship took off. By 2007 they were married and, in early 2009, they both decided that enough was enough - the constant travelling with their jobs, rushed weekends together and too much politics in their business lives finally taking its toll.

So they decided on a total change of life. Jane had always dreamed of running a boutique hotel or upmarket B&B and pushed this idea which was accepted by Gary as he couldn’t come up with an alternative plan. The couple finally decided on France (proximity to their children in the UK and good weather) and spent about 18 months viewing 100+ properties in the South of France, from Provence to almost Spain and back, before finally settling (in December 2010) on an old stone house (and former silk farm) in La Bruguiere, a small village about 10 minutes from Uzes, France’s first Duchy and a beautiful little town.

The house renovation took 17 months and they first opened for business in summer 2012. As they end their sixth year in France the couple have no regrets and remain positive about their future.

Jane has finally managed to fulfil one of her childhood dreams of cooking professionally for others and continues to ride her horse. Gary works front of house at Mas d'Augustine their chambres d’hôte and (when asked) offers business advice to friends/associates in their location, whilst amusing himself by playing (bass) in a local French group. The couple recently started an additional business to project manage renovation works/remodelling (and, if requested, provide interior design) of holiday homes for absentee owners.

Life is too short to stand still and wait for it – Jane and Gary are firm believers that life is for the taking. Enjoy Jane's recipes here or spend a couple of nights to savour her cooking first hand.
