Christenings are always a great excuse for a bit of a Billericay knees up but they are so often let down by decidedly unadventurous catering. How exciting can some cold chicken drumsticks and pigs in blankets really be? After all, you are celebrating a new life here so you need to do things properly. We are not talking a bit of a snack on a Saturday afternoon! A hog roast can certainly add a touch of something special to a christening, with tasty lean meat and excellent crackling for those that like something to get their teeth into. Everyone loves a good christening and your hog roast Billericay Christenings can become the stuff of local legend.
But hog roast’s alter ego as a formal main event food is also worth remembering, after all not everything is a party; serious stuff goes on too in Billericay. Charity auctions and fundraisers, governor meetings, business awards evenings, corporate hospitality; they all need something a little more formal to make a good impression, so why not step up to the mark and bring in a hog roast caterer. You may think that seems like a strange step after seeing hog roast served on rolls at events in Billericay but hog roast really does tick the box as a formal dinner solution. Hog roast can be presented beautifully on a plate with all the trimmings, it carves like the very best port (which it is, of course) and it has a distinct yet delicious flavour and texture which sets hog roast apart from anything else. The added beauty of a hog roast is that it is freshly cooked for all to see, not something you see with your typical formal dinners and it certainly adds to the special sense of occasion. So you see, hog roast Billericay style covers all the angles and really is the all in one catering solution, whatever the occasion or event.
It’s a real pity Gavin and Stacey has finished, because I’m sure that hog roast would have made a guest appearance at some point! Maybe that‘s a good excuse for a brand new series?
