“VICTORIA: SEASON 2” finds Victoria adapting to motherhood after the birth of her first child, a daughter (to the disappointment of many). Meanwhile, the disaster of the Anglo-Afghan War unfolds abroad, and the catastrophic Irish potato famine begins to wreak havoc. In other foreign affairs, a royal state visit to France is in the offing. Most intriguing to Prince Albert is the budding Industrial Revolution, which is now sweeping England. There is Charles Babbage’s mechanical calculator, a collaborative project with the bewitching Ada Lovelace, daughter of the scandalous Lord Byron. Then there is William Fothergill Cooke’s miraculous electrical telegraph, not to mention Marc Isambard Brunel’s daring—and dangerous—Thames Tunnel. What an extraordinary time to be queen!
“Masterpiece: Victoria Season 2” has a run time of approximately 480 minutes on 3 discs. The DVD SRP is $49.99 and the Blu-ray SRP is $59.99. The series is already available! The first season is currently available.
This unique waffle maker creates a large hexagon shaped waffle which has a one-of-a-kind bubbled texture. These delicious waffles, sometimes called egg waffles or “eggettes”, have crispy golden outsides and light, tender interiors. An eggette is a kind of spherical pancake or ball waffle popular in Hong Kong and Macao. The food item is also referred to as an “egg puff”, “egg waffle”, “bubble waffle” or by its Cantonese name, “gai daan” and is made from eggs, sugar, flour, and light evaporated milk. They are best served hot, and often eaten plain. They can also be served with fruit and flavors such as strawberry, coconut or chocolate. They are sometimes referred to as “Hong Kong cakes” in Chinatowns across America, especially in New York.
Eggettes are one of the most popular Hong Kong “street snacks” and they have been a favored street snack in Hong Kong since their emergence in 1950s where they were made with coal fire and sold from street kiosks. They are made from a sweet batter that is cooked in a special frying pan with small round “wells” (resembling an ebleskiver, but with smaller and rounder wells) and then set on hot coals in the fire or more commonly, on an electrical heat generator. The egg batter is poured over the special frying pan and heated, thus forming the small ovals of eggettes.
In addition to the conventional “egg taste”, they are also available in a variety of flavors such as chocolate, green-tea and ginger, etc. Eggettes can be eaten at different times of the day depending on local tradition.
