Oops. Sorry, we’re out of stock. The chocolate connoisseur Piggletino took the very last piece out of the box while trying to introduce the chocolates to you.

Oh well! 🙂

Around the World with Food (II)

20 Apr

French Fries, French Fries.

Why are fries called ‘French Fries’? In the Netherlands, Piggletino was told that these were ‘Flemish Fries’, not ‘French Fries’. Hmm.

Piggletino decided to pop by a frites shop to get a cone for himself, considering that fries were a national snack for Belgium and The Netherlands too. Having had one too many fries with mayo, Piggletino decided to opt for Sauce Andalouse, not quite knowing what it was… (His scout later told him that it was a Belgian specialty which had nothing to do with the namesake Spanish region – it is made of mayonnaise, tomato paste and bell peppers)

Ah well, what could one expect. When a little pig needs to eat, he shall eat with little care for what the origins and recipes are!

 

 

Around the World with Food (I)

(Piggletino got upset with his scout for long days of working and a lack of travel plans. He decided to come up with his own ‘Around the World with Food’ series of posts.)

HMPHH.
Piggletino got tired of waiting for his scout, and decided to share some of his favourite foods from various trips with everyone 🙂

Did you know that there were so many different types of ‘waffles’? Piggletino heard from the waffles shop that in there are various ways of making waffles that result in the Flemish waffles, American waffle, and even the Belgian waffles. And the best thing that Piggletino learnt was that there are no Belgian waffles in Belgium! Gasp! Isn’t that a surprise?

This is the Brussels Waffles – light, crispy on the outside ( and with deep squares that are nicely filled with chocolate sauce and strawberries.

Brussels Waffles are unique from others due to its sharp rectangular sides. Close by but different, the Liege waffles are shaped like a rounded rectangle and are seldom matched with toppings due to its vanilla or cinnamon flavours. Also unlike American waffles, the Brussels Waffles doesn’t go so well as a breakfast set.

Piggletino shall remember these interesting facts and go around the world in search of the various types of waffles!

Time to leave!

It’s time to say goodbye again! Piggletino’s got to take a break from this hectic lifestyle of eating, sleeping and playing. He shall release his scout back to work, while he takes a good ol’ nap for a few weeks.
