This week PHR put on a hog roast in Surrey. Surrey is an extremely picturesque county, and full of history – it is home to such towns as Godalming and Guildford. We really enjoyed travelling there and meeting the guests of our clients. The event was a fundraiser, to raise money for a local charity. Everyone there had a great time, and there ended up being thousands of pounds raised overall. Premier Hog Roast were happy to have helped facilitate this charitable event!
Here at Premier Hog Roast we don’t just deliver you a pig for eating: we bring with us the equipment and personnel required to provide you with a finely tailored feast that is sure to be perfect for any occasion. No party is too big; no venue is too unique. If you need a hog roast, you need us! We don’t just reserve our equipment for our own use either, if you have an event which you are catering yourself, we offer a catering equipment hire service which is extremely affordable. All the equipment is of a professional standard, and is kept in such a way – being cleaned rigorously after being rented out. We have bain mairies, refrigerators, gas ovens and serving stations. It doesn’t stop there, we can even provide furniture – a plethora of tables and chairs – and cutlery – disposable or crockery.
Don’t forget our fine dining menu! Each meal on our fine dining catering menus was chosen for its taste and sophistication. Whether it’s our sautéed asparagus-stuffed chicken breast with Gruyere cheese, our fillet steak with red wine jus and mushroom pate or our baked tuna loin in a tomato and fresh herb sauce, you’re sure to be taken aback by the standard of our food whilst being so affordable. Part of what makes our service such good value for money is what’s included in the price. This price includes a uniformed chef and staff to serve for four hours, (any additional hours are charged at an hourly rate of £15 per member of staff) as well as presentation dishes, crockery, cutlery, napkins & linen. Also, delivery to your event is included in the initial price. As always, we want you to know that we deliver our fine dining catering to all midland regions and London areas from our base in Coventry, Warwickshire.
There’s several things which makes Premier Hog Roast the ideal choice for your function or event. It could be our extremely high customer satisfaction rate, or it could be our premium meat – sourced locally and exclusively by our friend Barry the Butcher. Or, it could be the fact that we take on full responsibility of making sure your event goes off without a hitch, whether it’s a modest back garden or a grand hall. Our staff really do work hard to give you the best event possible. And, who doesn’t love a pig roast? Be sure to contact us here or by telephone to secure our services.
This week saw Premier Hog Roast in Bristol, to cater for a 40th wedding anniversary. It was a great occasion – the venue was a hall just outside the city, and there were over 200 guests! There were lots of presents, and many guests also gave speeches consisting of memories of the happy couple. Even some of our team were getting a bit emotional!
Bristol is the sixth most populous city in England, home to approximately half a million inhabitants. Having said that, it didn’t feel crowded during our visit. in fact, it was rather peaceful, there also being some great sights to see: there’s the SS Great Britain, a living museum on a ship; or the Clifton suspension bridge; and Cabot Tower, offering great views of the city from the top of 108 narrow steps. All in all, a very nice place to visit – one we’d recommend to anyone!
Bristol Hog Roast – Thyme and rosemary with walnut and mushroom stuffing
Our client this week opted for their pig to be smothered with our thyme and rosemary flavour enhancing rub, and chose walnut and mushroom as their stuffing of choice – a great decision, if we do say so ourselves. We rub all our animals as standard with olive oil and salt before roasting. This ensures that the meat stays succulent, and the crackling stays perfectly crackly. Instead of using the traditional spit roast method, we slow-roast all our pigs in self-contained ovens. Whilst it keeps the flavour locked into the product, it also means that we can roast the animal prior to your event. Yes, the traditional method may be more aesthetically pleasing to have on show for your guests, but believe us it can be awkward when a hog roast company wants to access your venue 6 hours before you even arrive to set up! With Premier Hog Roast, there’s no fuss. Our team are all trained in health and safety, and hygiene, and they deliver the product to your venue on time, every time. Within minutes, they are set up and ready to go… we even have our own equipment! This means that no matter where you want to have a hog roast, we can oblige you.
Why not make good use of our salad range? It’s affordable, but also deviously delicious. We have some great salads available: spicy couscous; mixed leaf; Mediterranean; chunky crunchy coleslaw; and rocket, parmesan, olive and cucumber. At £3.95 per 3 items, and £4.95 per 5 items, they’re a steal. Also, great for any of your guests who may be vegetarian.
So, if you have an upcoming event that needs catering, why not make it a hog roast? We offer free delivery to all London and Midland regions, so whether it’s a hog roast in Bristol, Oxford, Essex or Birmingham, we’ll be there! Contact us here, or by email or telephone.
At the start of this week we put on a glorious hog roast in Leicester. The event, with just 40 guests, was relatively small compared to most of the roasts that we do, however it was made all the more intimate and enjoyable because of it.
The event was planned as a surprise birthday celebration, for a huge Leicester FC fan. The venue was adorned with Leicester paraphernalia such as posters and bunting, and guests were even asked to wear blue. There was a football cake to mark the occasion, and some guests came dressed up as players. Although sadly, none of the side’s boys in blue could make it down… they mustn’t have got the memo! Leicester have obviously enjoyed great success and fans moods must currently be at all-time highs, but after our softly floured pork baps accompanied by our traditional sage and onion stuffing, their recent victory of the premier league was soon forgotten…
There’s something great about celebrating with a hog roast. In Leicester, the football fanatics were ecstatic for our slow roasted pork. We were asked how we ensure the meat retains its succulence, whilst still holding ridiculously enormous amounts of flavour. We were interrogated as to how we made sure the crackling was perfectly crispy. We can’t reveal all our secrets, but we can tell you a little bit about how we make our piggies so perfect.
Firstly, we slow roast all our pigs in an upright fashion. This helps to lock in the flavour more than the alternative, and quite commonly used, method of turning the animal on a spit. Before roasting we rub the pig with a special formula containing olive oil and salt – which aids the crackling process, and produces the great crackling which we so often get quizzed about. To go with the baps, we provide your favourite stuffing out of our four options: traditional sage and onion; bacon and apple; walnut and mushroom; or cranberry. We also offer four different types of flavour enhancing rubs, to add yet another dimension to the customisability of your event: cider and sea salt; thyme and rosemary; honey; and chilli.
As if this wasn’t enough to ensure the high-quality nature of our product, we even go to the length of using only one butcher, who provides us with only premium free range animals, and has done for close to 20 years. Yes, where would we be without our very own Barry the Butcher!
