Pig recipes

Yummie for my Tummy!

The Flying Pig is proud of the fact that we have a self service kitchen in all of our Amsterdam Hostels..  which is kind of unique here in Amsterdam!  

Our Kitchen’s are fully equipped so you will be able to cook up something nice.. if you have the time of course. So if you have proudly whipped up something in the Pig kitchen and want to share it, this is to place to gloat. Also improvised Free-food-shelf recipes are more than welcome!

If (sadly) you are not cooking at The Pig and you want to help out your fellow kitchen clumsy Piggies you can

drop some recepies on our facebook wall

The best ones will be put onto our website .
