Pig Roasts are fast becoming the main alternative to a barbecue, and evening buffets.
They are a great option for larger parties/weddings with over 100 guests as they are a real cost effective way of catering, but don't be put off if you only have a smaller gathering as a smaller pig can be used.
How does it all work?
Prior to the event, the pig is prepared and the head can be removed if you prefer.
It is then cleaned, oiled and seasoned on the day of your event. On the morning of your wedding or event, the pig will be put onto our custom built machine and cooked to perfection for your desired service time.
To cook a whole pig roast it takes between 7-14 hours to cook, with the chef supervising the entire process.
So to insure the best possible crackling with the most succulent meat, we don’t just turn the heat on and check it hours later – only to find overcooked meat and charcoal crackling (this does happen with some companies), it is checked on a regular basis throughout the whole cooking process.
The use of a special roasting unit means that we can cook, carve and serve basically anywhere; hotels, restaurants and even gardens.
The pig is carved at the pre-agreed time and then served from heated roasting dishes on a buffet table. Sauces and salads will be placed for your guests to help themselves or served onto plate by our service staff if desired.
Pig roasts can be much more than just pork and stuffing in a bap. The pork can be served in many variations with the favourite being served with a cold salad and hot buttered new potatoes.
(And then there’s the cleaning which takes about 3 hours.)
