Garlic, Rosemary & Parmesan Stuffed Porchetta

July 26 2017
What is the yummiest thing on earth? Why the answer to that question is porchetta. Picture this if you will piglets. Crispy, golden, sizzling, hot crackling wrapped around tender juicy pork that has been smothered in cardamom, chilli and sea salt and stuffed with parmesan, garlic and rosemary. “Good lord” I hear you say and I do indeed agree.

Balsamic and Garlic Slow Roasted Beef

July 12 2017
When it’s pouring with rain and freezing cold, what is better than a slow roasted meat in the oven? Absolutely nothing piglets, apart from maybe takeaway Indian bought to your bedside whilst your animals snooze quietly next to you. This dish is one of those, rub it with delicious things, pop it in the oven and don’t look back for 4 hours kind of dish. Literally! The most beautiful thing about this dish, apart from the fact you don’t do anything with it for four hours is that when you do finally pull it from the oven, you merely poke it with 2 forks and the whole thing falls apart in shreds. It’s like nothing ever seen before and really must be experienced on a Winter’s evening to be believed.

Has anyone ever said to you “one day we’ll just need to take a pill for our food and life will be so much easier”? This Little Pig has had many swine’s say this over the years and it imagines getting a big glazed honey and ginger ham leg and clonking it over their head. I mean who in their right mind would indulge the idea of forgoing food for a pill? This fine swine often thinks about that statement when it eats particularly delicious things and this crumbed lamb chop recipe was one such dish.
