Food Word of the Day: Pettitoes

Food Word of the Day: Pettitoes | www.myfoododyssey.com

Somehow the word pettitoes feels more genial and appealing than the much-maligned alternative, trotter.

  1. Goodness! This was unexpected …. I wouldn’t have come close to guessing the meaning of pettitoes!

    • Me neither! Sounds like some sort of dance move to me! 😉

  2. Oh and they are like little toes (pigs trotters) … I will certainly be adopting this sweet word as a lovely disguise for something delicious that many won’t touch because the name is a turn-off!

  3. Ah yes…we were brought up on a diet of pig’s trotters (pettitoes) and pig’s cheeks. Now a delicacy on the finest menus, they were once considered the cheapest cuts, and were so, but my Mother, God bless her, knew how to serve up a truly delicious dinner for little more than a few pennies.
    PS. Do you have a Foodie Word for ‘Pig’s Cheeks’?

    • Nana was a dab-hand at turning cheap cuts into tasty meals. I have fond memories of her famous curry made with beef mince. Cheeks are actually a great cut – lean, tender and flavoursome – although they do take a bit of time to cook. I haven’t come across an alternative name for them yet but I’ll keep an eye!
