Some towns in the UK have little in the way of claims to fame. Others have one or two. Leighton Buzzard for instance has one musical claim to fame in the shape of eighties pop band Kajagoogoo who originate from the town.
Okay, so we are not talking The Beatles or The Rolling Stones but Kajagoogoo were quite big, if only for a short time.
Something that has enjoyed success for a substantially longer period of time is the hog roast. Hog roast dates back to medieval times and, whilst it has never been number one in the pop charts, it is certainly making a name for itself in the function and event catering world. Perhaps hog roast Leighton Buzzard events could be the next thing?
Enjoying a hog roast Leighton Buzzard event may be a relatively new experience but hog roast has always enjoyed a degree of popularity throughout the centuries. Hog roast would quite often have been served at some of society’s most important events and certainly enjoyed by some of the richest people in the land. Hog roast was something of a status symbol.
Times moved on and hog roast, whilst still popular, was not quite the obvious function meal of choice. But hog roast is finding new found fame as a twenty first century function and event food, so a hog roast function is more than likely going to be a common occurrence these days. What is more, you no longer need to be rich to enjoy hog roast.
It is odd that that it has taken so long for hog roast to catch on in Leighton Buzzard and the rest of the UK, especially when you consider some of the less than memorable efforts you often see at functions and events.
I think we have all seen plate after plate of lacklustre and soggy sandwiches, accompanied by warm salad and an uninspired selection of cold meats. It makes you wonder if any thought has gone into what people actually like to eat at all at these events.
You won’t have any complaints with a hog roast. Hog roast offers flavour by the bucketful, with some of the best tasting meat you will find anywhere in Leighton Buzzard and beyond.
Hog roast is great on rolls with the addition of a little sauce or it can be enjoyed as a beautifully presented plate of carved pork together with apple sauce, stuffing and crackling, of course.
Needless to say that crispy crackling is one of the major talking points of a Leighton Buzzard. Not forgetting the impressive looking hog roast machine that the hog roast caterer attends to throughout the long cooking and serving.
Do you really want to inflict the same old food on your family, friends, relations and special guests? Or do you want to dazzle them with the magical flavours of a stunning hog roast? You see, some things enjoy momentary fame whilst others enjoy legendary status.
Hog roast can definitely classed as legendary in Leighton Buzzard every single time.
