There is a lot to be said for the benefits of having a regular market day where you live. In fact, you could go as far as saying that a regular market should be obligatory for any reasonably sized town.
Markets are a great way of getting to learn and hear about all of the locally produced goods up close and personal, and also a fantastic way of seeing just how important a part agriculture plays in the day to day lives of everyone across the UK.
Livestock markets are particularly fascinating, giving you a glimpse into the life of farmers whose lives are dedicated to these fine animals that each of us tend to take so much for granted every day. Luckily, if you live in Northallerton, this is an experience that you will get to share on a regular basis as this is fine town with a long market day tradition.
This Yorkshire town of fifteen thousand or so people owe a lot to this industry and are no doubt very thankful that the market days are continuing into the twenty-first century.
Maybe it is this love of tradition in Northallerton that has seen the folk here take a rather old feast to its heart as a solution to the age old catering nightmares that we have all endured. The feast in question is a Medieval one and it is creating something of a hog roast catering craze.
Well, it’s not just a craze here, but one that appears to be really taking hold in many of the towns, villages and cities across the UK. It would seem that hog roast catering could definitely be the next big thing at events and functions. And in my opinion that is to be widely applauded as event catering has been on the decline for decades…but not for much longer.
Those regular livestock markets in the town could really have inspired the locals to veer off the beaten track of boring old catering and choose a new road that leads to freshly cooked, wholesome tasting and labour intensive fine cooking.
After all, the job of a hog roast hire Northallerton caterer is a lot of things but it is certainly not a simple one. Anyone thinking that cooking hog roast is a walk in the park needs to think again.
And if you are in the early stages of planning or organising an event or function such as a corporate event, garden party, fundraiser, birthday, wedding or anniversary, then listen up because if you make it a hog roast Northallerton event, you really are going to get supreme value for your money.
Let’s face it, what makes a great event is not the venue or the entertainment….or even the people who are there. It is the food. It is what everyone looks forward to and what everyone talks about long after the event is over, so why on Earth anyone would want to cut corners and serve up tediously boring and bland food is anyone’s guess.
By choosing hog roast, you are choosing absolute proven quality in every single respect. Hog roast oozes flavour and looks superb. It’s one of those meals that looks as fantastic as it tastes.
Just think about what a great first impression you will make on your guests when they walk in to the venue and are greeted by a huge roasting whole pig.
It really is a quite splendid and mouth watering sight and immediately indicates to your guests that they are going to get a proper meal and not some hurriedly cooked or warmed up affair that no-one really cares one bit about.
Hog roast may look incredible but there’s a lot of thought and care gone into choosing the meat and the cooking. The whole pig is not an off the shelf pig but a carefully selected local animal, only from a reputable supplier.
And as for the cooking, well, six hours is spent on delivering a great tasting hog and you will almost certainly taste the time and effort because hog roast tastes stunning, whether you have pig in a bun (hog roast rolls to you and me) or are treated to a beautiful gourmet hog roast meal, you will never want to settle for anything less than the very best hog roasted foods.
Make sure that your guests not only enjoy great company and a great evening but leave with a very satisfied appetite by serving them a great food that they will remember for a long time to come.
