Medieval Hog Roast in Warwick

warwick-castle-ceasars-tower-660x463October/November and December are possibly the most perfect time of year for Hog Roast Hires, hence why we always find ourselves so busy during this period!

There is no event we won’t cater for, nor many we haven’t tried already but in preparation for the Halloween season, this week Premier Hog Roast were asked to cater for an event to which they had never catered before! A Medieval Themed Hog Roast night in Warwick! Taking a Hog Roast back to its historical roots indeed. Roasting a whole pig or animal goes back to the prehistoric caveman era, however, in the Middle Ages, putting on a Hog Roast or any kind of whole spit-roasted animal was reserved for great celebrations, gatherings and events! It was a true display of wealth and status to have a whole pig, and a sign of great strength especially if the animal was hunted, and there was often a great banquet with a table-topping Hog Roast centre piece to celebrate the end of the successful hunting season.

Now, here at Premier Hog Roast we can’t exactly promise to hunt the piggy ourselves, we prefer to source ours with renowned, fair trade, free range local resourcer Barry the Butcher in Stratford (we think it’s much kinder that way) however when you hire with us, you can be sure that you will be receiving the same grandeur, dramatic effect and talking point for grub that it would have been all those hundreds of years ago… but back then we don’t suppose that they had quite as many recipes for beautiful Barbeque rub that we do in our Hog Roast kitchen! So really when you put it like that, we bet our Hog Roast Hire is even tastier! Another advantage to a Hog Roast hire with us…. Spare the servants! The clean-up is all taken care of with us, not one oven to scrub or piece of tin foil to recycle! We’ll handle it all.

The Hog Roast Hire was an amazing fit and perfect choice for the evening! Lit by lanterns and open fires, our pig was steaming and sizzling, kicking up all the mouth-watering meaty aromas, paired with flame torches and kegs of chilled cider and beer to accompany the delicious pork and stuffing batches, all with a view of stunning Warwick Castle over the hill! Having the pig slow roasting added the perfect visual to the already amazingly planned evening and everybody was really excited and happy to get involved and have a try, and it was amazing to see all the effort and how much everybody got involved with the theme of the evening, especially when it takes place in the Midlands, our favourite place!
We love this time of year because of all the exciting events and wintery spirit, with everyone getting geared up for long nights and the holiday season!

All in all another great success for Premier Hog Roast, here’s hoping that the Autumn season brings us lots more exciting events like these! Premier Hog Roast, the perfect catering option for your birthday, christening, wedding and now for all your medieval needs too! 😉
