got little info to share with ya..
roast pig to bring when return to bride's place, i saw most bring when recieving bride in the morning.... as well cutting the pig must leave the spine connect the head and back area mah..
Understand that the cans of pig trotters is needed for GDL for teochew customs to be given to bride side. Now I tried to find from the NTUC, i didn't find any cans of pig trotters. Wonder do you all have the same difficulty? What do you all do? Pls advise. Thanks
I saw a bride's blog and there were pictures of a roast pig when the groom went to pick the bride up - it was soooo cool - so traditional and yet kitchsy at the same time, and I bet the roast pig was delicious
has anybody done this recently? or planning to do it? the link that somebody else post up on the tiongbahru roast pig is comprehensive, but I wonder how small the small-medium roast pig is?
I cooked one in my wood oven. Brought the oven up to full heat and let the fire die down. The pig was placed over a roasting tray on a rack, with the nose and ears and tail covered in tin foil, prepped only with a covering of oil and salt.
It took about 4.5 hours to cook, and was FABULOUS, served the Brazilian way with wedges of lime, salt, crusty bread and a herby salad.
It was one of the best meals i have ever eaten.
The day after 3 sets of neighbours knocked on the door and my oven had to be destroyed (unfortunately a non DEFRA certified oven in a smoke free zone.. luckily I have now replaced it with a fully certified oven but have not yet repeated the suckling pig!).
suckling pig is more tasty than golden pig.
The name of roasted pig is é‡‘çŒª or æ²™çš®çŒª, for prayer will normally take é‡‘çŒª as é‡‘çŒª got bone. But æ²™çš®çŒª is more tasty and serve during banquet.
You can buy from ubi ave 2, the smallest 1 is $108 (during CNY).
Normally people will buy from yan chuan roaster but I feel the 1 on the extreme left (when you face the shop) is crispy too, don't know is it because my mum actually air fry it.
