Well, there is no secret at all. Hog roast always has and always will be a firm favourite with those who enjoy it, but it could be that people have grown a little tired of the unsatisfying catering solutions that plagued events over the years. There can be nothing worse than looking forward to a great occasion only to be greeted by platters of wholly uninspiring food that you could just as easily prepare at home in an hour or two. I don’t think special food should mean straight out the freezer and most people would agree. The hog roast hire Salisbury chef would definitely agree, for they know all too well the amount of hard work that goes into preparing a cooking a hog roast requires. They also know that special occasion food should really mean incredible flavour.

What makes hog roast such a great tasting feast? Well no small part of that flavour is down to the quality of the meat. Ask any top chef what they consider the secret of great tasting food to be and they will always say ‘quality ingredients’. No amount of fancy cooking is ever going to give you incredible flavours from a lousy cut of meat and hog roast is no different, which is why the hog roast chef always ensures that the whole pig they use is one that has been well reared and that comes from a well regarded local meat supplier. This eye for detail is what helps make hog roast taste so superb.

So how is such a fantastic feast so affordable? Well, it helps if you can keep your cost per head budget as low as possible when arranging a special occasion.

That is some going! Each guest getting quality food, no compromises just great meat.

Organising an event can be something of a thankless task, whether it’s a private function or a corporate work related event.
