Hog Roast Worthing
Not all seaside resorts are the same. Most people think of kiss me quick hats, seagulls, fast food and dodgy postcards but some resorts tread a slightly different path, or at least have done so in the past. Worthing is one example of a resort that had slightly higher end appeal. In the late eighteenth century, Worthing became something of a more up market resort for those with a little more to spend.
Look at the town crest and you will see three fish. These refer to Worthing’s prosperous days as a mackerel fishing hamlet, so the town obviously recognises great food heritage. I wonder if Worthing would have considered including a hog as part of its crest, too. After all hog roast is a tremendous food that the people of Worthing would no doubt have enjoyed as much as mackerel. Hog roast Worthing, the seaside resort?
Okay, so hog roast Worthing doesn’t sound quite right but there is no reason to doubt the fact that Worthing may once have enjoyed its fair share of hog roast events in the past, and with the current resurgence in the popularity of hog roast, the hog roast Worthing tag may not be too far off the mark.
There are some good reasons why hog roast is enjoying something of a renaissance and it involves a number of factors. The main one is of course taste, because hog roast simply eclipses all other event food in this respect. This could be down to the fact that hog roast caterers choose only the best quality pigs from wholly reputable suppliers. After all, you simply can’t produce a great Worthing hog roast without the right pig.
