X'mas Giveaway! Crackling, Crispy, Melt-in-your-mouth Roast Pork!

Fancy having a twist to your X'mas meal this year? Instead of the usual roast beef / ham, how about a nice crackling, crispy, melt-in-your-mouth roast pork! And not just any roast pork but one that is by Uncle G's Handmade?

If you have not heard, Uncle G's Handmade has been gaining popularity in the local pop-up scene with long snaky queues, all to sample that perfect marriage of crispy skin with juicy and moist meat. And being the foodie that I am, you can only imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when I realised that Uncle G is none other than my ex schoolmate of ... well, ahem *cough cough* let's just say some years. :p

Here's sharing a bit more about Uncle G and his handmades and a GIVEAWAY at the end of the post!

Me: Hi Uncle G! I know how your name came about but for those who are new to your yummy treats, can you please share a bit about you, your name and your 'stall'?

Uncle G: “G” has the same pronunciation and intonation as “pig” in Cantonese.  Since our signature product is crispy roast pork, I find that this name actually fits in quite well!


Me: Why roast pork; all things why this particular meat and style? It could have been for eg Guinness stewed beef? :p

Uncle G: It all started after watching a roast pork video I found on Youtube by Marco Pierre White.  Also, most of the roast pork stalls we have locally are either too dry, too salty or the skin is not crispy enough.  Hence, I was very inspired to make my very own version.


Me: What is the hardest part to achieve when cooking this signature roast pork?

Uncle G: The hardest part was in achieving a balance of crispy skin and meat that is tender and moist which can take up to quite a few hours to achieve. I also roasting the meat personally to ensure that each order is not rushed and the taste is consistent.

Me: What do you like most about Uncle G's signature roast pork? What's is that unique difference that makes it so special?

Uncle G: When you take a bite, first you’ll hear the crunch of the crackling in your head, followed by the tender, juicy meat.  The fats also melt in your mouth, bringing together the flavours of crunchiness, juiciness, tenderness and saltiness.


Me: Let's chat about something else. :) What is/are the hardest dish(es) that you have ever prepared? Why?

Uncle G: Unbelievable as it sounds, it’s Fish and Chips.  I’m still trying to perfect the batter and get the perfect chips. 

Me: What is your favorite dish / meal?

Uncle G: I love egg dishes.  Favourite meal will have to be a sashimi bowl I once had in Hokkaido which was chock full of the freshest seafood I had ever tasted!


Me: Lastly, what do you think would be a nice Christmas treat? 

Uncle G: Definitely a 1.5kg of our Crispy roast pork which will certainly be a nice Christmas treat! (Coincidentally, roast pork is a traditional Danish Christmas dish known as Flæskesteg)!

About Uncle G's Handmade
Uncle G’s Handmade was started together by Kenneth and Joey, a husband and wife team in 2013. Uncle G's Handmade debuted as weekend traders at Pasarbella’s soft launch, where it first introduced its Signature Crispy Roast Pork.

Kenneth has always enjoyed cooking and was inspired from watching cooking programmes and Michelin chefs’ videos on YouTube. Trained as an engineer, he enjoys hands-on hobbies which range from cooking, assembling and painting of model kits, wood work to mini electrical stuffs. This is why the word ‘handmade’ was added. However, cooking remains as his number one passion.

Together with his wife Joey, who loves research and all things pretty, they went on to attend professional baking classes and have since added chocolate, pastry and bread skills to their repertoire. In every pop-up, Uncle G’s Handmade strives to serve something new as they enjoy seeing others enjoy their food.

  33. My past Christmas favourite food was turkey but this year would certainly love to twist X'mas meal with Uncle G's drooling handmade Roast Pork. Remembered usually when having the roast pork during family gathering, adults & the children would tend to compare who can output the loudest crackling & crispy sound. And the one with the loudest will win & sure to have another piece of it ! Lol.

    Merry Christmas & thank you for hosting this awesome giveaway.

  58. Buttery sugar cookies is my favourite christmas food. Other than that, i love having christmas mains as leftovers. Leftover ham goes into ham and cheese toasties, left over turkey goes into sandwiches, salads and porridge, i have big plans for this lovely pound of roast pork (that is if i have any leftovers after). Pick me!! Pick me!!
