Traditional Catering Revived

We believe that food that tastes amazing can make all the difference to an event, and it doesn’t matter if the event is a birthday party or a corporate function, because the effect of great food is all the same – it makes it all the more enjoyable, and engaging, which is also very important for an event, to engage.

Spitting Pig Catering

It’s not like the old days where you could give people any old food and you’d hear nothing of it, today food that tastes great is expected and the standards are that much higher than they once were. Give someone an undercooked sandwich and before you know it they’ll be a blog online announcing the injustice to the world. This has had 2 effects, one good for us and the other good for you. The first effect is that more people are seeing food is vital and turning to the professionals, in this case us, to get the job done right. Where the public benefit is from the increased competition and higher standards, as mistakes and badly done food isn’t tolerated any longer. That’s even better for us because with people demanding more from their caterer we’ve gotten bigger than ever, now that our acute hog roast skills are seen as the height of catering.

An Unbelievable Catering Experience

Hog roasts are back, bigger than ever before. Enjoying a well tended succulent pig after it’s been spit for 3-8 hours is up there with the best for taste, and it’s also an exciting promoter of social interaction and all round great fun.
