Hog Roast Windlesham
Windlesham, Surrey is located near the Berkshire border. It has enjoyed a quiet history compared to some English villages, with most of its past devoted to farming and brick-making. Brick-making was a valued art back in medieval times and a large area, called brickfields, still exists within Windlesham. The holes used to make the bricks are now doing time as ornamental ponds.
Hog roast Windlesham was set to take place at one of their very oldest pubs which boasts a beer garden. This venue is often used for community outdoor events and I was very pleased to be asked to cater a hog roast for them. I arrived early, as I usually do, trailing my roadworthy Titan Spit Roasting Machine which I purchased a few years. This machine is the ‘bee’s knees’ of spit roasters and can easily cook a beast up to 85 kilos.
For this event, I purchased a locally bred and fed Gloucester Old Spot hog and being unable to use my regular assistant this time, I decided to ask Chef and Griddle to provide a hog roast hire Windlesham assistant to help ensure that everyone was served in a timely manner. They can also provide everything from a hog roasting machine and roaster to an entire menu, should you need one. We were lucky on this summer weekend with the weather. It wasn’t exactly sunny and warm, but I can report Surrey was experiencing a calm day with only a mild drizzle. Therefore, I was able to easily set up my machine to one side in the beer garden. On this occasion, I kept the menu simple and set the roaster up with one whole hog of about 50 kilos. I threw a number of potatoes into the oven and set about ensuring the meat would be cooked to perfection right on time.
