York is a city shrouded in a rich history. There can’t be many other cities that can match York’s colourful past, though as history tells us, it has not always been pleasant. Romans, Vikings...you name it, York has seen it, though thankfully it looks like the days of invasions and conquests are well and truly over for the city’s near two hundred thousand population.
In the city’s rich history there will certainly have been a fair share of celebratory meals and functions, pretty much like the people of York enjoy today, and one interesting piece of history is beginning to make a comeback in this part of the world. Hog roast has risen again from its slumbers and is starting to be seen as a wonderful alternative to traditional event and function food. Could it be that we will are seeing a new hog roast York after all these years? I think so.
Hog roast York of yesteryear would have been an atmospheric place to live and work. You can imagine walking through the Mumbles in York and (amongst other less appealing aromas) catching the scent of hog roast in the York air.
Hog roast York, and indeed all the other towns and cities across the UK, would all have been host to many a hog roast in their time and this would have made for some fantastic events, though these would probably have been attended by the wealthier members of society.
Times are changing. Twenty first century events are more open affairs and the appeal of hog roast is helping it gain a whole new audience, not just in York but all over the UK. This old medieval feast has found that it is gaining a whole new set of fans, but why is this?
Hog roast is a real event food. People like to make a statement these days. Think of modern day weddings with some of the outlandish church entrances and even more outrageous outfits: the traditional is no longer enough. People want something different. The same applies to food. People are bored with the usual catering offerings and want their choice of food to say as much about them as their clothes and music. Hog roast offers the people of York something new. An exciting back to basics meal that may be one of the most traditional feasts around but provides a visual and taste element that no amount of prawn sandwiches and barbeque chicken drumsticks can ever match. Hog roast ticks all the boxes when it comes to the perfect event food, in fact it makes you wonder why we ever lost faith in this amazing meat. And amazing it really is. Forget about the fact that hog roast is a visual feast treat and consider the fact that the hog roast has been slowly roasting for around six hours before you take your first mouthful. Six hours means great flavours and great flavours means very happy diners.
Hog roast is back with a vengeance in York. Another invasion but this time, it’s tasty!
