Hog Roast Portsmouth
The UK’s geography has meant it has always relied on its island status for security and strategic power. The importance of our island status at keeping the German forces at bay in World War II can never be underestimated, and our naval forces have always played a pivotal role in the UK’s security and in conflicts overseas.
One place in the UK where this naval importance is always uppermost in the mind is Portsmouth. There can be few cities in the world that play such a key role in its homeland’s security. Portsmouth remains as important a port as ever, even more so with Portsmouth shipyard’s work on the two new aircraft carriers, which will employ over three thousand people.
There is more to Portsmouth than the port and shipbuilding, of course, but the two hundred thousand plus people in this Hampshire city are indebted to the success of the port, indeed a tenth of the city’s workforce rely on the naval dockyard. But what do they rely on when it comes to choosing great food for that important Portsmouth function? Is hog roast Portsmouth’s food of choice?
The hog roast Portsmouth question? Well, a few years ago, people may not have even considered hog roast as a catering solution for a Portsmouth function, but times are changing and hog roast is enjoying something of a surge in popularity across the UK. This may seem strange for a food which, well, was never really considered as an option for parties and events ten years or so ago, but when you look into the world of the hog roast, it’s a wonder why it has taken it so long to catch on!
Of course, a lot depends on the nature of your Portsmouth event. Is it a family affair such as a christening, anniversary or birthday with a mix of generations all happily mingling and wanting to have a good laugh and a dance? Is it a charity fund raising event where you want to keep things a little more sedate? Perhaps it’s a formal marquee event such as a wedding, where everything has to be ‘just right’ and the food has to be spot on? Or are you planning to wine and dine some important clients or business associates with a view to securing some all important new business?
