Merry Christmas from Piggletino!

25 Dec

Hello everyone!

Piggletino wants to wish all of you around the world a Merry Christmas!

Piggletino has just returned from a trip but he got busy eating and forgot to update the blog! He has enlisted the help of his scout to update it over this festive season, and the posts shall be up again by the new year!

So in the meantime, why don’t we all *hic* have a drink!

Cheers and thank you everyone for reading the adventures of this little pig!

Please tell Piggletino what you have on your Christmas menu! Perhaps he can get his (rather un-creative and clueless) scout to make some of it too!

Around the World with Food (IV)

4 May

Sometimes food isn’t about how luxurious and rare it is. It only matters that there’s lots of it and they all taste good!

You know, it’s a misconception that pigs are lazy. Piggletino has been training very hard to keep fit. He was inspired by mountaineers and hikers, and decided to conquer the highest point that he can find … TADAH!

Well done, Piggletino. That bag of chips was tough to climb onto, wasn’t it. Now, from the top of the mountain (of chips), Piggletino shall offer a quiz question: What comes to mind when you speak of Australia?

Sydney Opera House? Kangaroos? Melbourne’s cafes?
Nope! It’s this:

Yummy!

(Note from the scout: Hello everyone. Please help me to convince this little pig that Australia isn’t just about TimTam. What do you first think of or what is most significant of the country when someone says, ‘Let’s visit Australia’?)

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.)

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!

Sayonara, Hokkaido!

9 May

An enjoyable trip in all, Piggletino hops into his little “onsen bath tub” along with his wine, Japanese mochi dessert and a cup of green-tea latte!

Goodbye Hokkaido, we’ll be back!
