Now that summer is here, many of us will be throwing parties and gatherings– and who doesn’t want to leave a good impression on their beloved guests? Recent trends in catering show that the old buffet style sandwich and salad arrangement is becoming increasingly outdated- not to mention boring. Many people are wanting a more novelty experience, something which will stand out in the minds of their guests, and in the North of England, there’s only one answer – a hog roast.
The return of an ancient feast
The hog roast is an age old tradition which has been around for centuries, and possibly longer. Although pork is an incredibly popular dish in England, the hog roast has a history which is highly diverse. Hog roasts are popular in the Southern US where they are popularly eaten at barbecues. Pig roast is also the national dish of Puerto Rico! It is considered a delicious option in Southern China, Indonesia, Spain and the Philippines. Here in the UK it is popularly enjoyed at outdoor events including weddings, parties, festivals and more. And it seems that all the hype is justified.
The informal nature of a hog roast combined with the freshly cooked meat it serves, is why it has been the go-to dish for many people worldwide, for centuries. And in the modern day and age there are so many options to customise the experience for different people. Take hog roast Blackburn specialists for instance, who provide the option of an on-site chef or personal training to roast a home-reared pig yourself. Bespoke menus can also be provided, but one thing is doubtless- your guests will be singing your praises for time to come.
