We’ve been in the hog roast catering business, and our work takes us to all four corners of Dorset. However, we first got into it on a trip abroad. We gained a lot of knowledge from our trip to the ‘Veld’.
We learnt about how to cook a hog roast, about marinating the pig and about how to make it look as good as it tastes. From that trip, we decided to give it a go ourselves, and from that moment onwards, we’ve been in the hog roast catering business ever since.
Hog roast catering is growing in popularity throughout the country, and it’s easy to see why. There are many benefits to having a hog roast as the delicious centrepiece of your party feast.
It’s all in one unit, so there’s no messing around with having to put several different cuts of pork in the oven. Although it takes around six hours to cook completely, as it’s rotating while cooking, it will be done evenly and thoroughly once ready to serve.
A hog roast is also easy to serve, as you simply take a piece from the pig when you’re at the front of the queue. Now that we’ve got you interested, we offer you two equally tantalising choices.
You can either order a hog roasting machine from us for a very reasonable sum, or you can order one of our many different menus, depending on what type of function you’re having. If you decide to go for the first option, then you get to by your own meat, which you can then put onto the machine, and let it roll.
Although difficult at first, we can give you some advice on how to cook a spit-roast if you’re struggling. As the equipment you’ll be hiring features the latest technology available for spit-roasting, nothing much can go wrong. Once your meat is done, it will be tasty, succulent and a job well done. As well as eating some top-quality meat, you’ll have a sense of accomplishment that comes with cooking something to perfection.
Should you want to bypass the process of cooking everything yourself for your function, then the second option is just right for you. Whatever option you choose from our menu, we’ll come down to your event and cook and prepare everything for you, from the salads, sauces and stuffing right up to the pig itself.
We have many different menus available to choose from, ranging from the delightfully simple ‘pig in a bun’, which does what it says on the tin, to the more grandiose Gourmet and Dining menus, which include starters, potato dishes, salads and desserts, as well as a choice of meat or vegetarian options to put onto our state of the art Devon hog roast machine.
As our website says, we cater for weddings, parties, corporate events and even do Christmas specials, and we’ve done all those jobs in even the smallest village.
We cater for all tastes, and have had no complaints so far, and when presented with a challenge, we’ve never backed down, so when then ordering a hog roast from our menu is the perfect antidote to all.
