There was lot of nonsense in the news a few years ago about the Mayan calendar and how 2012 could signal end of the world for us all. Well, we lived through it and the planet is still very much intact and there is no sign of the impending apocalypse, today or anytime soon…
Reassuring if not entirely unsurprising news, I feel. I am sure that if any location in the United Kingdom could tell us all if I time was coming to an end, it would be the home of time itself, Greenwich.
I have been to Greenwich on a number of occasions and at no point has anyone at the Royal Observatory advised me that the end is nigh. But maybe time is up for something that really has overstayed its welcome for a long time now and that is boring, bland and unexciting event catering.
This is something that has plagued us for decades and it is about time that everyone who organises catering at events simply chose something else instead. Well, it now seems that people are starting to do just that, as the rise in popularity of the hog roast Greenwich event would suggest.
It is no shock that Greenwich should one of the places that would embrace the hog roast as a new and exciting catering alternative, as this is a place with a great royal heritage and a hog roast hire Greenwich is a meal deserving of such regal association.
It has not always been this good for the humble hog roast, mind. This is a feast that has endured some reasonably lean times over the years, only being wheeled out now and again for the occasional event, but those served to remind us all that it really is a splendid meal that was long overdue reappraisal.
Thankfully, that is what seems to be happening right now, and as any hog roast caterer will tell you, more and more people are choosing to make this fine cooking experience the centrepiece of their social and corporate event catering.
So, why is that hog roast events are now so popular? Simple, they’re an amazingly tasty, wholesome, traditional and great value feast that simply knocks aside any of the tired old solutions that we have all been putting g up with for decades.

Hog roast is everything that special occasion catering should be, and much more. Did you know that a standard sized Greenwich hog roast is more than capable of feeding over one hundred people?
