It seems that we are never that far from away from having something to celebrate or commemorate.
Special occasions seem to come so thick and fast these days, it can be hard to keep up. If you are from a large or extended family or work within a very proactive organisation you will know that standing still is not an option, there always seems to be something that needs arranging.
Some would say that’s a good thing. The more special events, the merrier.
Well, with the resurgence of the hog roast as a fantastic catering option it seems that you now have another great excuse to arrange a special event.
After all, this town of seventeen thousand people is just one of the many places in the United Kingdom to have welcomed hog roast with open arms. It seems that as more people heard about Taste the Cracklin hog roast catered events, they are now becoming more of a regular feature on the social calendar, and that is a great thing. But why has hog roast started to be seen as the new heir apparent to the special event catering crown?
Well, there are probably lots of different reasons behind the rise of this type of catering option, and one of those could be down to something as basic as the need for simply fantastic food.
I’m sure that you’ll agree that for every one great special occasion that you have attended in the last four or five years, you have been to two that have been let down woefully by appalling catering.
It is a total mystery why, in this day and age when we have so much great food available, that event catering should be such a problem. Why people think that tasteless hot pot and insipid pizzas would make a great catering spread is beyond me.
This desperation has led people to re-examining some old traditional classics, and one blast from the Medieval past that seems to have stood out from the crowds is the humble hog roast. Well, it is not so humble now because Taste the Cracklin is really showing everyone else how proper event catering should be done.
You see people who opt for hog roast catering are not the type of people who couldn’t care less about their food or the ingredients that go into it. They are true food lovers who demand great, wholesome foods, that Taste the Cracklin’s dedicated chefs are able to give their clients. Always ensuring the very best in catering possible.
Hog roast, for those of you who have never experienced it before, is a little bit of food heaven. Imagine every wonderful roast dinner you have ever had and magnify the flavour. You are only then getting close to the power of the hog roast, it really is that special, but why is that the case? It is after all just a pig, isn’t it?
No. A pig? Yes. Any old pig, certainly not. Hog roast relies on the best possible quality pigs and that means sourcing superb quality meat from a reputable local supplier. The chef is looking for good size, good meat and good fat. When they find that, they have found your pig, and that means they have found you real flavour.
But there is more work required to give you the ultimate in hog roast flavour and a lot of that is down to the extensive cooking process. It might seem excessive but a hog roast takes around six hours to cook fully.
During that time the meat not only very slowly cooks but it also soaks up all the incredible flavours and juices from the bones, making hog roast one of the absolute stunners of the roasting meats. Every good cook knows that slow roasting has this effect but hog roast seems to take slow roasting to new heights the like of which other catering solutions can only dream.
There you have it. A hog roast in Heckmondwike seems like a simple enough suggestion, but there is method behind the madness and a lot of flavour to be enjoyed by everyone who you choose to invite, and with over a hundred servings from one pig, maybe you should add a few names to that list!
Go on, give the boring old catering options and choose the delights of top quality meat, delicious slow roasted goodness, juicy meat…and plenty of it. Don’t just settle for food, settle for Taste the Cracklin’s hog roast food.
