Braised Cherry Tomato Spaghetti with Giant Parmesan Meatball. A.K.A...

February 18 2015
This Little Pig once took its trotters all the way to Chicago for a work trip. At a fabulous Italian restaurant this carb loading swine could not resist the spaghetti meatballs – an oldie but always a goodie. Imagine This Little Pig’s surprise when a bowl of spaghetti came out with just one giant meatball on top. This piglet could not stop its snorts of laughter for the whole meal but agreed at the end that not only was it extremely delicious it was also a lot of fun to eat.

Potato Salad with Free Range Egg, Fresh Corn & Creamy Aioli.

This Little Pig has a pet hate when it comes to attending summer lunches. Nothing is more disheartening for this fine swine than attending an event, thinking “OOOooooOO they’ve got potato salad, hooray!” and then upon piling up ones plate and taking a giant mouthful – it’s a bland potato salad. The worst. And then of course you have to eat it all because it’s on your plate now and your mother bought you up to be a polite swine.

This Little Pig turns to it’s ultimate comfort food for hot weather. For some reason This Little Pig likens this dish to the Vietnamese version of spaghetti in terms of taste and happiness. It’s fun to eat, it’s satisfying and the fresh sweet, sour and tangy combination of flavours will have you slurping to way past the point of full.

Beetroot, Green Apple & Shallot Relish

December 17 2014
A few years ago This Little Pig was lying on the couch with one trotter dangling over the edge, dealing with the effects of a quiet Christmas party gone awry. Blearily This Little Pig watched its housemate gently stir a pot of beetroot relish with love, preparing Christmas favours for all her family and friends. Now at the time this flattened swine was thinking, “that looks like a lot of effort – just head to Simon and Johnson you energetic fool.” However over time This Little Pig has had a change of heart and come to the conclusion that homemade goodies really are the most divine present AND to top it all off they don’t take up too much room in people’s homes (just their bellies). Remember no house filling junk this year piglets!

Yesterday, This Little Pig rolled up its cardigan to it’s ham hock elbows and plunged excitedly into recipe testing This Little Pig does Christmas.

Hoooooly Mother

This Little Pig Went to Market is so in love with food that sometimes the joy is impossible to explain or contain.  Often in The Little Pig kitchen, a reverence is cast over the cooking event and the sheer love it brings to the creators is almost awkward to behold and leaves many questioning, ‘why isn’t this Little Pig larger considering how much they love to eat?’
