Hog Roast Chipping Ongar was asked to cater a corporate event recently, where our customer decided that our festive menu would be just the ticket to get everyone into the Christmas spirit. While we have two choices of mains for carnivores with this menu – either a free-range hog or whole-roasted turkeys if you fancy something more traditional at this time of year – we also have a vegetarian main on offer, of our halloumi and vegetable wraps, served with a Tzatziki dip. For this function, we were asked to serve both a hog roast centrepiece and the veggie main, so on the day, we arrived at the venue bright and early in order to prepare and cook lovely food over several hours.

Later in the day, while the hog was sizzling away, we worked hard to create a feast of sides, with pigs in blankets, roasted potatoes, cauliflower cheese, peas, sprouts, green beans and carrots, then we grilled the skewers and made our own trimmings of apple sauce, stuffing and gravy. By 4pm, we were finally ready to serve.
