Ormskirk Gingerbread Showcard

Due to many questions about our ever popular Ormskirk gingerbread biscuits we've created this showcard. As well as a map of the UK showing Ormskirk's location I added a picture of King Edward VII (him of the Edwardian era) who according to local history was so taken with the taste of Ormskirk gingerbread on a visit to the town that he used to order them to be delivered to him in London.

Firefighters' Magazine

A big thank you to mr. K, who wrote an article about the Three Little Pigs for the esteemed magazine, Shobo.

Shobo, for those unfamiliar with the title, is a magazine aimed at firefighters, ER doctors and others involved in emergency rescue.

 It might be a bit specialist but we'll take what we can. 

Once again thanks Mr.K!

Today from The Three Little Pigs oven we bring you these fruit scones. 150 yen to take out of 200 yen to eat in.

When ordered as eat in they come with butter, jam and (depending on supplies ) a dollop of clotted cream.

Tea Tasting

Our teas are supplied exclusively by Ringtons and for the past year we've offered a regular black tea (Traditional), Earl Grey and Red Bush.

We thought it high time we introduced a bit of variety, thankfully Ringtons have four blends of black tea so today we put them to the taste test to discover any differences. 

Blends put to the taste test were Traditional, Extra Fresh, Connoisseur and Kenyan Gold.

Happy to report that each blend has it's own characteristics. 

Watch this space for the tasting notes.

Inaka Quiche?

A new week, a new quiche. Today we made this based, potato and onion quiche. I thought it was a twist on the classic Quiche Lorraine, but on checking our Japanese cookbook it seems it's known as "inaka quiche " which to translates as "country quiche "(but without the bucolic ideal that it's English title conjours up!)

So what to call it?

Victoria Sandwich

A true taste of Britain... Victoria sandwich. This tearoom classic can be found all over the UK, and of course in Tokyo at the Three Little Pigs! 

Bon appetite!

Freshly Baked Scones

Straight from the Three Little Pigs oven.... scones. These are made with a combination of wholewheat and regular flour. So not only are they delicious, they are good for you too!

Lemon cake and a cup of tea

A new experience for me, sitting down being a customer. Relaxing with a slice of lemon drizzle cake and a cup of Ringtons Kenyan Gold tea.

Could get very used to this!

Busy bakers

We're asked to provide a gift selection for an event happening this weekend, so we've been busying ourselves baking oatmeal biscuits, flapjacks, brownies and these Ormskirk gingerbread.

Don't worry they're not all for this weekend, we've baked extra so you can still pop in and pick up a packet, or two!
