Hog Roast and Other Scottish Produce




This is the Scottish Hog Roast--- hot, crispy and succulent, much like a "lechon baboy" in our Philippine setting. The difference? We did ours in a very traditional way, in an open air with two people keep on tossing and tossing the big pig over the burning charcoal and another main difference? We didn't cut the head! In Scottish manner, not cutting the head looks unethical. And for them tossing and tossing is too much of a hassle and unpractical, a machine is better like that one in the photo! hehehehe! Oh well, culture is relative...
And other food? Barbequed Langoustine, Crawfish Chowder and Chunky Breads, Aberdeenshire Ribeye Steak and Sweet and Smokey Baby Back Ribs to name a few, plus various treats as well as refreshments, all made from local produce. Not to mention the all day wine and spirits. Me and my husband are not really fond of alcohol, we love wine , but that's not always!!!
I had been contented with Crawfish Chowder( something similar to Tomyam soup although the Thai's tomyam soup is stronger and spicy!) and some Jambalaya rice. My husband and Prisco devoured some steaks while Baby Cam was contented with sandwiches and bit some chunky breads.

For the desserts(icecream, cakes, tarts, pies), i will show you some. I really don't know how to call the others although i comforted myself with these! hehehehe....




I could not post all food photos here as i even failed to take all pics of all the foods! It had just been too much and there were lots of food stalls that we didn't even got the chance to go at all. Oh well, we had fun and the food was only secondary. For the meantime, i am really missing my seafood tomyam and other delicious Thai delicacies!!!! We definitely should go to a Thai restaurant here once my hubby will come back!!!!
