The Best Hog Roasts In Chelmsford
We here at hog roast Chelmsford have been clocking up some lovely hog roast catering bookings at a fair old rate. It’s obvious that the people here know a good thing when they see one – a skill than can no doubt be traced right back to 1199, when the Essex settlement officially became a market town, so even then it must have been full of savvy consumers getting value for money. Did you know Britain’s first public broadcast was aired from Chelmsford on June the 15th 1920 and was sponsored by the daily mail? Of course, its history stretches back much further than that: the Romans built a road from the town to London, which is now part of the A12.
We’ve laid on hog roast packages for numerous weddings, birthday parties for all ages, and a fabulous fancy dress night which was great fun from beginning to end. There were some of the best costumes I’ve ever seen at that springtime event, all lining up to get their plates piled with juicy, freshly carved meat from the spit roast, accompanied by potato wedges and fresh salads. Well it’s not every day you see ‘Scooby-Doo’ and ‘Lady Gaga’ standing next to ‘President Clinton’! The guests may have been in disguise, but they certainly couldn’t hide the smiles on their faces as they savoured our tasty treats. Nowadays, the town has another, more modern claim to fame, and that’s as the host of the V Festival at Hylands Park each August, and now in its 16th year, an ideal place to share a mouth-watering buffet with fellow music fans. Imagine soft rolls with succulent pork, lamb, or kebabs and burgers, made fresh to order? How about a dollop of horseradish on that beef, or some more gravy?

It is a great opportunity to really boost confidence and have a laugh and of course have a few drinks and enjoy some fantastic food. At least that is the plan! When was the last time you went to a great social occasion or special event in Colchester and really enjoyed the food? Of course, you may have got lucky and been invited to a really good event but the chances are that you were one of the many thousands of people to suffer at the hands of boring catering. We have all been struck at some point by this particular curse, and whilst many of us thought that lousy catering finished in the 70s and 80s, it would appear that some event organisers in Colchester are still intent on inflicting terrible food on us. But there really is no excuse for this any more, especially when great catering is available at such great value courtesy of the hog roast hire Colchester caterers.
Hog roast has been one of the surprise packages of the catering world in the last 15 or so years. Many people in Colchester are developing a taste for this quality catering solution, despite it being one that has been around since medieval times! That’s right, hog roast may come across as being a thoroughly modern catering solution but the reality is that the modern day hog roast Colchester caterers are certainly not the first to be making a living cooking roasted pig for event goers. Far from it!
Traditional Yet More Popular Than Ever
Hog roast has been feeding people with top quality meat for centuries, in fact you could say that it is one of the oldest catering solutions in the world. One can only think that the reason hog roast diminished in popularity was that meat became so expensive, but the power of the pig seems to be strong again in Essex and the hog roast is back with a vengeance feeding many a guest at parties social occasions and events in the region. There are certainly more than enough people in the town to be interested in a little bit of hog roast, with the population around 105,000 and counting, which is a significant number of people to keep fed.
Hog roasting may sound like a relatively simple tasks for the hog roast hire caterer but that would be to brush over some of the finer details involved in the whole process. In fact roasting a pig is actually one of the most intensive catering tasks that there is with an awful lot of work involved to get everything just right. Then again, with the results tasting so good, it is understandable that it should take a while to make it just right. The whole process actually begins with choosing the perfect pig for the event, and even this takes some time. You see you need a pig that is going to produce enough meat for the event in hand, so that requires the caterer to do a bit of careful selection for a perfectly sized porker. Then there is fat! Yes, fat is a really important part of the hog roasting industry. Fat plays a key role in getting the flavour and texture of the meat just right because the fat helps prevent the meat drying out during what is a quite extensive cooking period. A hog roast is a big joint of meat, in fact it’s a whole pig, so this requires a long time roasting away, six hours approximately. Without that all important layer of fat, the meat would not only dry up but it would not benefit from some of the flavour in the fat. So far from being a hindrance, the fat plays an important role.
The hog roast Chelmsford caterer is also more than just a great cook, for the visuals of hog roasting are there to be enjoyed by everyone. It really is impressive when you walk into a venue and are greeted by a whole pig being slowly roasted on a gleaming hog roaster machine. It very definitely makes a welcome change from the usual table of sandwiches and chicken legs! So, what are you going to do when you next have an event that needs catering for? Are you going to play it safe and boring or are you going to live it up with hog roast?
