Hog Roast Sudbury
If I was to say ‘Mr and Mrs Robert Andrews’, would you know what I was referring to? It sounds like the sort of announcement you would make at a big event as the guests arrived, and I dare say that Mr and Mrs Roberts would have been quite important guests. Indeed they do look quite important on the very famous painting that is named after them.
Of course, Mr and Mrs Robert Andrews is the painting by that quintessentially English painter, Thomas Gainsborough, and Mr Gainsborough is probably the most famous name to come from the Suffolk market town of Sudbury.
Sudbury is home to around twelve thousand people and is every inch the typical English market town you would expect, especially one that produces such a typically English painter as Gainsborough. Perhaps Sudbury will also succumb once more to another Medieval English favourite? Hog roast Sudbury anyone?
Hog roast Sudbury isn’t another Gainsborough classic (for I do not know of any painting by him that featured hog roast) but it could be part of a new trend that is sweeping the UK that is changing the face of event food. It’s a trend that I‘m sure Gainsborough would approve of. Indeed I am sure he would have been at the front of any campaign promoting ‘hog roast Sudbury for the people’.
