Bones Festes 2018

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I found this fantastic mother pig pie and babies, in La Colmena – Dolceria de la Colmena is one of Barcelona’s oldest pastelerías (patisseries) and it’s always good to have a look in the window when you pass by. I assume the pig is a savoury pork pie, since suckling pig is commonly served here at Christmas. I noticed vacuum sealed pigs in the supermarket this week – they even sell them frozen, as per turkey in Britain and America.

    That’s a crusty looking pig, my friend. Have a very Happy Holidays MD!

      Thanks Ron – I’d like to think it’s filled like a traditional English pork pie, but I’ve never come across that kind of pie in Spain. I should have asked.
      I hope you have a fantastic Christmas!

    Happy Christmas MD – hope to see you in the UK at some point…

  5. There is something a little unsettling about vacuum packed whole suckling pigs in the supermarket- the imagine the riots of horror here !!
    But I love this pie and it’s culinary comment on Christmas food!
    Have a great weekend!

  6. Feliz Navidad y próspero año nuevo! Que lo pases muy bien, un abrazo
