Let's get Cooking...
Season the pork shoulder on all sides with salt and pepper. Place in a pre-heated dutch oven and sear each side for about 3-5 minutes.
Add the tomato paste and stir, this will caramelize the pot and the meat.
Add the garlic and herbs in a loose bunch and stir a few times before adding the brown sugar and wine.
Cover and cook on a stove top for three hours on medium to high heat.
Grill focaccia on open flame, brush with olive oil afterwards and sprinkle rosemary on top.
In a cast iron pan, heat ham and bacon until all the fat is rendered and add the onion.
Next, whisk in the flour to make a roux. Slowly, add in the chicken stock and coffee - whisk well and bring to simmer. Once thickened, add the heavy cream and whisk.
Serve pork shoulder over grilled focaccia and serve with gravy.
