Take a bite out of the new year!

In Hungary pigs are so popular that it is good luck to eat a whole one for good luck on New Year's Day. No, not Wilbur! Nope. Not Wilbur indeed. This one is made from walnuts and wafer cookies and glued together with caramel. This kind of confection is called grillázs in Hungarian and it is tasty.

This guy is decked out for the new year with 2010 on one side...

And Buék on the other. Buék is short for "Boldog Új Évet!" which means Happy New Year. This is one festive pig, but is it delicious?


Yes! Caramelized walnuts and wafers with some frosting on top is in fact delicious and fun all at the same time.

Here's looking forward to the new year.
