I am the hog roast Canvey Island caterer and I love what I do. I remember when I first started this job; a few people thought I was kidding them. ‘You’re a what?’ they would say.

I think this is important to a lot of people nowadays as they may have grown a little tired of eating pre-packed or even microwave food at functions.
